GN Espace wrapped up a successful Southampton in September, despite a couple of days of extreme weather. We were featuring a wide range of cookers, hobs, ovens and galley equipment on our stand, the biggest we have had to date.
Ralph Olingschlaeger of GN Espace reports: “Despite the changeable weather we were pleased to meet with many of our existing customers and hear about their summer cruising adventures. This has also been our most successful show both in terms of numbers and sales value secured at the show. Encouragingly we also anticipate a strong end to the year.”
The show organisers reported that, despite the weather, they had still managed to break records for attendance. According to British Marine 92,000 people attended the show.
Amongst the cooker and galley range on display was a new ‘Eco door’, being shown for the first time. The Eco door sits inside a GN Espace glass oven door, preserving heat from a hot dish so that it can continue to cook for several hours without the need for power supply. Read about the Eco door.
