The Southern Toolfair - News
Monday 30 April 2012
IRWIN Tools has teamed up with The Southern Tool Fair in Southampton as part of a huge celebration of trade professionals that encourages the public to 'Show Some Love For Our Tradesmen'.
The event begins at 9am on Friday 18 May 2012 at the Ageas Bowl (formerly the Hampshire Rose Bowl) and is IRWIN Tools' way of thanking the region's tradesmen for the hard work they do in keeping the country running strong.
Everyone who visits the IRWIN stand will receive a free 'Tradesman Pack', featuring a selection of goodies that range from tool samples to footballs, while the first 50 people who attend each day will also be treated to a free hot breakfast. There will also be free limited-edition IRWIN t-shirts available to anyone who spends over £10 on tools on either day.
Attendees will also get the opportunity to try out IRWIN's latest and greatest new products, as well as being offered fantastic one-off deals on hand tools and power tool accessories, with one lucky visitor also wining a £100 IRWIN Tool Kit.
The event forms part of a wider campaign that launched in March 2012 with a dedicated website and continues with a number of events all over the UK and Ireland throughout the year. It culminates in a global 'National Tradesmen Day' on 21 September that will officially salute professional tradesmen, and highlight the importance of their work to the Great British Public.
The strapline of 'Show Some Love For Our Tradesmen' will be at the heart of the campaign which will also see businesses all over the UK partnering up with IRWIN to offer special benefits to tradesmen, from a free cup of tea or bacon sandwich to business support and advice.
