NEC Birmingham will this week open its doors for the first time to InstallerSHOW, the UK’s largest plumbing, heating and electric trade show.
Taking place from 21-23 June, InstallerSHOW will see over 300 exhibitors, including HPM at Stand A198, 100 speakers and will see an estimated 10,000 visitors descend on its new home.
Previously held in Coventry, the move to a larger venue reflected the immense transformation the plumbing, heating and electrical industry is currently undertaking, organisers said.
Martyn Bridges, director of technical services at exhibitor Worcester Bosch, said: “The industry is in a very different place to where it was 12 months ago. Recent changes have given installers the necessary but complex task of understanding how they can operate in a more sustainable and efficient way through the products and technologies they use and integrate.
“InstallerSHOW is an essential part of our strategy for better informing our installer community and equipping them with the tools and information they need in order to do their job more efficiently whilst also contributing to the wider drive towards Net Zero.”
Mike Costain, managing director of Lyrical Communications, added: “With an industry increasingly transitioning towards a Net Zero future, InstallerSHOW is also evolving to meet the demands of professionals eager for guidance on meeting government targets and customer expectations.
“We’re delighted to be able to offer the industry this essential platform where they can get hands on with the products, technologies and people that are actively playing a role in shaping that future.”
Some of the features visitors can expect at this year’s show include Installing the Future, with information on heat, biomass and hydrogen boilers, solar panels and energy storage, Water Innovation Zone and Elemental theatres focusing on net zero, retrofit and decarbonisation solutions in heat, water, air, and energy.
