InstallerFUTURES is the student programme at InstallerSHOW. It aims to provide students and apprentices with a meaningful and structured visit to the show.

We think it’s important to invest time in the next generation, and for 2024 we are enhancing our offering by expanding beyond our traditional offering for heating, plumbing, electrical and renewable students and apprentices, to include specialisms such as retrofit, bricklaying, carpentry and more.

Recruitment for InstallerFUTURES is done through our partnerships with local colleges and training centres with the support of our Advisory Board.

The students, accompanied by their course leaders, start their day with a short presentation, designed to give our student visitors some valuable insight into the industry they will soon be joining. These sessions are usually given by installers and industry insiders.

This is then followed by a manufacturer presentation, who will talk briefly about new technologies and what the future will look like. In addition to the content that is normally offered to our FUTURES guests, 2024 will see the inclusion of some more practical skills competitions, 1-1 meet-and-greets, recruitment experiences and interactive discussions with relevant exhibitors.

Following the presentation, our student visitors are invited into InstallerSHOW, encouraged to visit the areas which most interest them, and receive complimentary lunch vouchers.

As a sponsor, your business is seen to be actively supporting the next generation in the following ways:

  • Your branding will be visible on all InstallerFUTURES promotional material
  • You will be able to provide a branded goodie bag to all InstallerFUTURES student participants.
  • You will have the opportunity to present directly to InstallerFUTURES students.
  • You will be invited to work with the Installer team in developing the content for InstallerFUTURES.
