InstallerSHOW 2023

InstallerSHOW 2023

Returning to the NEC in June with a packed content programme and an even bigger exhibtion, InstallerSHOW is a key event for installers and specifiers of heat, water, air and energy technology. Here, we explore what’s on offer for local authority and housing association specifiers.

Taking place at the NEC on 27-29th June, this year’s event is set to be even bigger — with 400+ exhibitors set to welcome 15,000 industry professionals. Building on the success of its Birmingham debut last year, the 2023 show will feature an expanded offering for visitors to reflect the growing momentum towards net zero solutions.

The event offers a great opportunity to network with industry peers, make new connections, gain insights, debate current challenges and engage in lively discussions on key issues, as well as see the latest sustainable technology innovations and discover new solutions.

The elemental content theatres, BEAMA’s Net Zero by Design, Solar Innovations and the Wates Innovation Zone are just some of the highlights for local authority and housing association specifiers at this year’s show.
