Media 10, the organiser of Grand Designs Live, has announced record visitor numbers for its latest show.
 
The eighth edition at Excel London from 5 to 13 May saw visitor numbers rise to 105,509 (pending ABC audit), up from Media 10's reported figure of 100,167 last year.
 
The opening weekend attracted 42,000 visitors, an increase of 15 percent year-on-year, making it the best opening weekend to date.
 
“We are delighted with the fantastic visitor numbers for the event,” said Media 10 Group marketing director Rob Nathan.
 
“Not only was footfall the highest to date but the quality was exactly what the exhibitors expected and this was reflected in the healthy show spend and rebooking levels.
 
“Even the good weather and tough economic times couldn’t dampen the performance of this event, which is proving to be one of the most durable in the calendar. The show was consistently busy, which was great to see and great for the events industry.”
 
This year’s show saw the launch of the Automated Home, giving visitors an opportunity to engage with the latest products in home automation and the Grand Art Fair in Grand Interiors, offering consumers contemporary art from some of London’s galleries.
 
The co-located low-carbon motoring show EcoVelocity reported a seven-fold increase in visitors.
 
Grand Designs will return for three days to The NEC in Birmingham from 12 to 14 October.
