ORGANISERS of the Scottish Homebuilding & Renovating Show have predicted sell-out events in both Glasgow and Edinburgh this year.
The exhibitions for self-builders, home renovators and improvers returns to the SEC Glasgow on June 1-2 and Royal Highland Centre, Edinburgh on October 19-20.
Over 80% of stand capacity has already been snapped up at the Glasgow Show, with the Edinburgh event described as being “not far behind”.
The exhibition covers a range of interests including extensions, conversions, home DIY, planning permission, interiors, lighting, doors, windows, renewable technologies, heating systems, project insurance, energy efficiency, home insurance, and building regulations.
A recent survey of visitors to the show found that visitors had an average budget of £110,000 over the following 12 months, with 78% planning on working on a live project during the following year.
Nick Noble, commercial & events director at Future PLC said, “Our Scottish shows are always very well attended, reflecting the strong appetite for self-build and renovating in Scotland, which was boosted in 2018 when the Scottish Government set up the Self-Build Loan Fund, which offers loans of up to £175,000 to help with construction costs for self-build projects in both urban and rural areas.
“We expect sell-out shows in both Glasgow and Edinburgh as exhibitors take up the opportunity to connect with consumers, from a highly targeted exhibitor database, who see their homes as their number one asset. Not only do we offer visitors access to products and services that are not available elsewhere, they can obtain free advice from a range of experts, invaluable when undertaking a substantial project. Our visitors, with their combination of live projects and substantial budgets, provides trade exhibitors with the opportunity to open new commercial streams and significant ROI.”
