Stanley Tools is ready to rumble as one of Interbuild's exhibitors at the 2008 event (Sunday 26 through to Thursday 30 October).

Featuring a full-sized boxing ring and all the accompanying paraphernalia, The Stanley Interbuild Arena will play host to a series of tool-to-tool battles with contenders drawn from the thousands of attending visitors.

The format, which continues the competitive theme of last year's popular Stanley Tools Judgement Day Challenge, is sure to be one of the show's biggest hitters.

The ring-fenced area will complement Stanley's stand presence within Interbuild's infamous Truck & Tool section.  Traditionally one of the show's busiest areas, the hive of activity in Hall 4 is entirely geared towards the professional trades, buzzing with ‘live' product and expert demonstrations.

Interbuild has once again joined forces with electrical and lighting internet portal, Voltimum.

With Osram, Vent-Axia, Legrand, Nexans, Weidmuller and Elkay already confirmed, the area is fast reaching capacity and will comprise a meeting lounge, information centre and seminar theatre where the trade can come together to tackle issues ranging from energy efficiency and renewable energy through to security, power and control. Along with a raft of conferences, seminars and workshops touching on elements of the health and safety agenda, Interbuild welcomes a range of exhibitors bringing their latest innovations to market for the first time.

Organised by SummitSkills – the sector skills council for building services engineering – the final heats of SkillELECTRIC UK will be hosted at selected times throughout the full five days of the show. Already proven to be some of the electrical trade's most proficient professionals, the reigning champions from each of the regions (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales) will come together to perform a series of practical challenges. The overall winners in the electrical trials will be dubbed the UK number one in their trade and could be invited to compete for the title of ‘world's greatest' at WorldSkills in 2009.
