Southampton-based independent builders merchants Elliotts have launched The Southern Toolfair, being held later this month.
The event will bring together the biggest selection of hand and power tools on the South Coast under one roof and takes place on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 June at the Hampshire Rosebowl just off J7 of the M27.
As well as trade stands there will be a heat of the Irwin Ultimate Tradesman Challenge at the fair. The Southern Toolfair heat winner will receive over £500 worth of tools and clothing and will also go forward to the grand final, later in the year, where the prize is a Porsche 911.
Other attractions include Milwaukee’s Big Red Truck which will be at the show as part of a six-week tour around the UK and Ireland. The eye-catching vehicle will be showcasing the toughest, heavy duty tools being unleashed onto the market during 2009, giving tradesmen and women the opportunity to jump on board to enjoy live demos and get to grips with the latest tools. Visitors can also take advantage of show specials with some great deals and giveaways, as well as participate in some of the fun activities on offer.
Full details of the show can be found at www.toolfair.uk.com where there is also the opportunity to pre-register, not only to beat the queues but to be in with a chance of winning one of four fantastic prizes.
