Family-friendly event for the carpet & hard floorcare industry booking now
Following the success of the event last year, the second Carpet Cleaners Carnival - aimed at the soft furnishing and floorcare industry - will be held in September this year.
The National Carpet Cleaners Association, the UK trade body dedicated to the cleaning of carpets, soft furnishings and hard flooring, has been setting the standard in this industry for over 40 years through basic, specialist and advanced training courses for members and non-members at all levels of expertise.
On 15th September 2012 the NCCA will be holding its second Carpet Cleaners Carnival (CCC) at Wicksteed Park in Kettering, Northamptonshire - a popular day out destination for families, with its acres of beautiful parkland.
The event provides an excellent networking opportunity and will include an exhibition populated by top industry manufacturers, suppliers and advisors from within and outside the Association. Visitors will also be able to attend the workshops, which were so popular last year.
The Carnival, which is free to attend, is open to all upholstery and floor care companies and their technicians.
However, it is so much more than just a trade fair. It's a great day out and an opportunity to bring the industry together. It's also a family event and visitors are invited to bring their partners, friends and children.
Wicksteed was one of the first leisure parks in the UK and boasts one of the largest children's playgrounds in Europe together with more than 35 rides and attractions. In addition to enjoying a full mix of trade booths, workshops, demonstrations and associated activities, visitors will be able to view the lakes and parklands and, if they wish, visit the playground, fairground and other features within the park.
"If you didn't attend the CCC in 2011 you really did miss out on a great day," says NCCA Vice President and Marketing Director, Keith Robertson. "Thank you to all the visitors and exhibitors who took part, many of whom came with their families. The Carnival is so much more than just a trade event. It's an opportunity to bring the industry together and a great day out for the whole family."
As part of the Carnival, the NCCA has negotiated discounted rates for families wishing to visit the fairground and feature attractions, together with free parking for visitors, generating substantial savings.
Contact the NCCA office to pre-register and be eligible for all the discounts available.
