InstallerSCOTLAND 2019 was a big hit north of the border, receiving rave reviews from both visitors and exhibitors.
Held at the SEC in Glasgow, the one-day show welcomed over 700 visitors and 60 of the industry’s top brands to an action-packed day.
Installers got hands-on with the latest products on the market, and met manufacturers and suppliers face-to-face. Other show features included great debates about the industry’s future, and the unveiling of the UK Plumber of the Year 2019.
