The InstallerSHOW returned in 2021 with its biggest and best-attended event to date. The UK’s leading show for heating, plumbing and electrical professionals welcomed thousands of visitors, hundreds of exhibitors and a host of new features.
The buzz of InstallerShow 2021
The show took place from 28th to 30th September at the Coventry Building Society Arena. Around 152 leading exhibitors, including Big Wipes, showcased their products and services, ideas and initiatives. It was fantastic to be back and we saw and chatted with hundreds of installers on our stand. We nearly sold out, proving that visitors really appreciated all the great Big Wipes deals on offer.
InstallerShow 2021 was attended by around 6000 professionals in heating, plumbing, commercial engineering, renewable energy and electrical. Above all, the show provides face-to-face access to an array of industry leading brands, innovative products and services, ideas and initiatives.
Organiser Michael Costain, Lyrical Communications Managing Director said “Two years in the making, but what an astonishing three days. From the moment the show opened right through to the last minute, the buzz throughout the hall was palpable. Exhibitors who’d put so much effort into their presence were greeted with installers eager to learn the latest innovations and upskill.”
A host of new features
The 2021 edition of InstallerShow featured the most varied fringe programme ever including:
Future Leaders – an industry wide initiative to promote the next generation of leaders and influencers. They will ultimately be responsible for ensuring the ongoing success of low carbon targets and overall sustainability in the years to come.
Women Installers Together Conference – a dedicated event for tradeswomen within construction and maintenance industries.
The BMA (British Bathroom Manufacturers Association) Sustainability Forum – hosted discussions around reducing water demand, labelling, building regulations and retrofit.
Expansion plans for 2022
InstallerSHOW is moving to the NEC for the first time next year. This gives the organisers scope to develop InstallerSHOW into a world-class event – a 10,000sqm exhibition. Most importantly, the show will be attracting stakeholders from across the industry, both commercial and domestic.
Michael Costain concluded: “We see this move as the beginning of something very exciting for our industry and for the future of InstallerSHOW. Above all, the integrity of InstallerSHOW will remain intact as it moves across to the NEC. However, the overall look of the show will expand as we welcome more manufacturers and more installers to the event.”
