ELITE INSTALLER VIP NIGHT
Join us for a drink after the busy first day at the show and have a laugh with other plumbers and heating engineers.
Located at the Lady G’s Show Bar from 5-7pm on Tuesday 10th, visitors can unwind, enjoy some live music, and catch up with old and new friends during our VIP evening.
From interactive challenges and tests on exhibitors’ stands, to live skills demonstrations on key business areas such as wet rooms and underfloor heating, Installer2018 wants to promote the idea of ‘I did that’ rather than ‘I saw that’.
Taking advantage of these opportunities, a huge number of previous visitors (82%) said that they found new products and services, while 84% admitted that they learnt something new about products that they already installed – highlighting that a visit to an Installer show is undoubtedly a great use of time.
InstallerINVENT gives the industry’s inventors the chance to showcase their products to their target audience – heating engineers and plumbers.
The heating and plumbing industry is full of examples of installers who identified a gap in the market and went out and developed their own product to fill it – Chris Adey and his Magnaclean is certainly one that springs to mind. The nature of the job means that hurdles are continually thrown up during the course of an installation, and many installers have created their own hacks to overcome them.
InstallerINVENT offers a selected group of installers the chance to showcase solutions that they have developed to fellow plumbers and heating engineers – a perfect opportunity to gain valuable insight, feedback and support.
With previous participants all going onto bigger and better things – including national distribution deals with merchants and manufacturers – InstallerINVENT can provide the ideal platform to launch new products and solutions.
IF YOU HAVE AN INVENTION THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHOWCASE, PLEASE CONTACT US:
InstallerWORKS will bring practical demonstrations to Installer2018 – showcasing the skills and knowledge needed to access additional business opportunities to your portfolio.

While the specific practical sessions will run to a schedule throughout all three days of Installer2018, experts from each company will also be on-hand at all times to answer any specific questions and provide valuable insights to visitors.
