When the show opens its doors this March (4th - 6th), thousands of industry experts will be in attendance including manufacturers, merchants, suppliers, Government officials and a smattering of celebrities.But with all this going on in such a huge venue, how do visitors plan so they can get the most from their visit? Ecobuild’s new InstallerTOURS could be the answer.The tours run three times a day at 10am, 11am and noon, and kick off at stand N1951.The aim is to give installers a flavour of the show and highlight the areas that are most relevant to them. Each one lasts for approximately 40 minutes, so the rest of the day is free to visit the show.
Visitors will head to leading manufacturer stands including Fernox, Grant UK, Zenex Solar, Baxi, Worcester Bosch, the Glow-Worm Refurbishment and Retrofit zone, and Plumb Center. At each one a company representative will give a short overview of what’s on offer, so installers can return at their leisure when the tour is finished.
There will also be a stop at one of Ecobuild’s most popular attractions Practical Installer, which is a unique ‘working’ showcase.
This year it’ll be split into four areas, focussing on solar, biomass, heat pumps and water efficiency, and 17 of the industry’s top suppliers have teamed-up with Plumb and Parts Center to showcase the latest sustainable technologies, and talk face-to-face with visitors.
“Ecobuild can be a real game changer for installers, and the tours are a great way to ensure they get the most from their visit” said Alison Jackson, Group Director of Sustainability & Construction, Ecobuild.
