Visitors were seeking for solutions to add space and value to</p><p>their homes as well as refurbishment solutions and cost-effective energy efficient</p><p>products to save money in the long term.</p><p>The exhibition showcased over 500 companies, including heavyweight brands such</p><p>as npower juice, Miele, Porcelanosa VELUX, IKEA Kitchens (with this being their very</p><p>first Grand Designs Live event), Dulux,</p><p>LG, Microsoft, Dyson, as well as</p><p>independent designers, local business-</p><p>es, small manufacturers and new</p><p>products launches.

It is incredible to see so many consumers</p><p>returning and were proud that the show is continuing to</p><p>attract a loyal following from the Midlands and surrounding</p><p>areas. We have received positive feedback from both visitors</p><p>and exhibitors alike, and given the economic climate, its</p><p>clear to see that consumers are investing more in their</p><p>homes for the future.</p><p>The seventh Grand Designs Live London 2011</p><p>will take place at ExCeL in the Docklands,</p><p>and will run from Friday 30th April until</p><p>Sunday 8th May.
