The main stand of 400m2 was built with the feeling and look of a full house with key rooms featured such as the kitchen, scullery, laundry, wardrobe, bathroom and bedroom.
The bedroom, bathroom and wardrobe were combined into a multi-functional space
The wardrobe system displayed a "his and hers" combination of drawers, shelves and hanging space
This stand featured both new and existing products in exciting new applications around the home.
The feature kitchen was designed and built by local award winning kitchen designer Kim Duffin and featured a hidden sink with an electronic moving top from Linak, a backlit stone benchtop with a rise and fall Linak mechanism, new Hera lighting and was completely fitted out with Blum SERVO-DRIVE electronic opening assist drawers and lift systems.

The stands were attended by over 1500 separate businesses over the 4 days, all keen to see new products in what was a very different setting to Lincoln Sentry's competitors.
The smaller Lamello stand was designed to educate customers on the benefits of Clamex P joining systems and created numerous leads for follow up by the sales team.

To maximise customer interaction Lincoln Sentry also held a very successful “Open House” event in the outdoor grounds of The Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) on Thursday evening. Over 460 customers, vendors, industry body representatives and staff were in attendance with short speeches conducted during the evening by Lincoln Sentry management and also Pat Houlihan, CEO of DuluxGroup. The opportunity to network and mix with customers and suppliers alike was extremely well received and the night was a terrific success according to attendee feedback.
