We are returning to Dublin for the 2nd time with the BCFA Open pop-up exhibition series on Wednesday 13th June 2018. We had such a successful show last year that we have decided to expand the number of exhibitors you can now see at this years event!
A brand new exhibitor for you to meet is innovative bathroom product manufacturer GROHE, who are the worlds leading supplier of sanitary fittings. We chatted to the Head of Projects UK, Glenn Payne to find out why he’s excited to be showcasing at the BCFA Open Dublin 2018…
Have you noticed any design trends in your sector that differentiate British design and Irish design?
In the kitchen, bathroom and smart tech sectors, there is a strong correlation in design trends between the British and Irish markets. We have always found that very rarely do design trends fluctuate or differ significantly between these two markets.
Why is the BCFA Open Dublin an unmissable opportunity for you?
This will be the first Open event GROHE have attended in Ireland, and we are thrilled at the prospect of lots of networking and prospective business opportunities, with partners both new and old.
From previous attendance at other BCFA London events, we have found them to produce some promising new ventures for the brand. We are keen to showcase GROHE as a brand that is prevalent within the Irish design landscape, and want to use the event to engage with as many key architects, developers and contractors here as possible, in the hope that some exciting new projects will arise.

What’s your current bestseller in Ireland?
Our most popular and best-selling products in Ireland include the Tempesta shower range, and the Eurosmart and Concetto bathroom tap lines.
What are you most excited about highlighting at the BCFA Open and why?
Our overall desired outcome is for the event to strengthen GROHE’s brand presence in Ireland, and have our name synonymous with leading kitchen, bathroom and smart tech innovations for both residential, commercial and hospitality spaces. We want to communicate the forward-thinking nature of our brand and the state-of-the-art technologies that are inherent in many of our products.
One example of this is our SmartControl system; an intuitive push-and-turn shower system that can be installed as either an exposed, excealed or concealed installation. It offers many unique benefits to consumers and specifiers alike, and we hope that its display at the event will help to really set us apart from other brands.
