Robin Clevett – the self-confessed carpentry, joinery and building fanatic – has been announced as an official ambassador for Materials & Finishes Show 2024 – formerly W Exhibition.

As well as working closely with the event organising team in the run up to the UK’s trade show for the furniture manufacturing and joinery industries, Robin will also make a special appearance at the exhibition, which is due to take place at the Birmingham NEC from 19–22 May.

Hands-on role

Robin, who boasts over 113,000 YouTube subscribers, more than 40,000 Instagram Followers and hosts The Carpentry Show on FIX Radio, will play a hands-on role as part of the brand-new Materials & Finishes Show demonstration area, as well as compering a special panel on the main seminar stage.

Speaking about the collaboration, Robin said: “I was approached by the Materials & Finishes Show team last year and was instantly impressed with what the organisers have been doing to redevelop the show for the market. As a working chippy and active member of the wider carpentry and joinery community, I know there’s a real appetite for this type of UK event for our community.

“I’m looking forward to meeting visitors at the show this May and, like them, being able to see all of the latest materials, tools, technology and equipment side-by-side at the NEC. Keep your eyes peeled over the coming weeks for a sneak peek of what we’ve got planned.”


Materials & Finishes Show Event Director, David Todd, added: “We’re hugely excited to announce Robin’s involvement in Materials & Finishes Show this May. What better way to shape the content and features than collaborating with someone who's on the cold face of the industry and walking in the shoes of a large proportion of our visitors.

“We’ve been bowled over by Robin’s enthusiasm and this, combined with his expertise and knowledge, can only make for a winning formula for our visitors from the joinery and carpentry communities. As organisers, we’re always looking at new and innovative ways to connect with our audiences - Robin’s involvement is the first of many new partnerships we’ll be announcing in the run up to the show.”

Catering for all areas of the material journey

Materials & Finishes Show attracts buyers from every corner of the industry - from furniture and joinery manufacturers and designers right through to retailers, the KBB market, carpenters, joiners and worktop fabricators.

All areas of the material journey, from the initial stages of raw processing through to finishing and component supply for completed products, will be represented at the event.

Materials & Finishes Show will mark the first opportunity for the UK furniture manufacturing and joinery industries to come together since 2018. Visitor registration is now live; register for a FREE ticket via the website:
