Organiser Media 10 has extended Grand Designs Live Birmingham to a four-day show for its next edition.
The housing show will be on 9-12 October at The NEC.
Last year 61,832 visitors (ABC-audited) visited the show, with 500 exhibitors. The show’s footprint also expanded by 15 per cent, taking over two halls to house more Grand Build stands along with Food and Housewares and a new food feature called Market Lane.
Commenting on the 2014 event, show manager for Grand Designs Live Nathan Garnett said: “Our ninth Birmingham show was a huge success; so much so that we have added an extra day to this year’s event as well as increase the overall footprint to accommodate our growing visitor numbers.
“As always, we have kept evolving the show with a number of new features for Birmingham including The Tech Box, Grand Gardens Urban Allotment and Market Lane.”
The London edition of Grand Designs Live claimed record-breaking figures for its 10th edition, held at Excel London in May.
