At Farnborough Exhibition Centre, 150 suppliers came together under one roof, including Milwaukee, DeWalt, Makita, Karcher and Mountfield, to give customers the opportunity to take part in demonstrations, activities and get hands on with the latest products.

The final of Britain’s Top Tradesperson took place at Screwfix LIVE for the first time and third-generation roofer, Darren McGhee came out on top. He walked away with £10,000 worth of tools, a £5,000 tech bundle and £5,000 towards future training.

Suppliers got their hands on the first ever Screwfix Products of the Year awards with Milwaukee, DeWalt, British General, Flomasta and No Nonsense winning across seven categories, voted by customers.

Screwfix CEO, John Mewett, said: “Screwfix Live was an amazing weekend, once again. There was a real buzz around the show and our customers came out in force to see the latest products and deals from our suppliers.

Thank you to all the staff and suppliers who give up their weekends to put together this amazing and unique event that allows our customers to get hands on with our products!”
