When it was announced that a major home improvements show was to be launched in the North East of Scotland, the first of it’s kind, Thistle Windows and Conservatories knew it had to have a presence. And not one to do things by halves, Thistle became the main event sponsor and was the only window and conservatory company to exhibit there, with the support of its supplier, Sash UK, and Network Veka.
Thistle, well known among homeowners for windows thanks to a catchy radio jingle, had only ever exhibited at trade shows before. But with the increasing trend for sun lounges and extensions, The Scottish Home Show 2012 seemed the perfect platform for Thistle to launch the Loggia Conservatory from Ultraframe and raise the profile of the conservatory side of its business to the Scottish public.
The Loggia conservatory, constructed by Thistle’s experienced craftsmen, was on full display at the show and became a genuine focal point, capturing the imagination of the homeowners and was even admired by TV personality, Carol Smillie, who officially opened the exhibition. A brand new and unique development, the Loggia combines remarkable Italian Renaissance-inspired aesthetics with revolutionary engineering to provide a conservatory for 21st century living.
Managing Director of Thistle, Ian Bruce said: “The show generated huge interest and we received some great feedback. We got a good return on our investment so we will definitely rebook for next year. As a direct result, our focus for the New Year will be on the sun lounge and extension side of our business. We have the capacity, so now it’s just a case of getting the message across to our customers. The Scottish Home Show 2012 gave us a really great head start.”
