THE Scottish Homebuilding & Renovating Show is to take place for the first time in three years this May at Glasgow’s SEC.
Allowing for opportunities for businesses to connect face-to-face with self-builders and home renovators from across the country, the event will take place on May 20 and 21.
The show will cover a wide range of interests from extensions; conversions; home DIY; planning permission; interiors; lighting; doors; windows; renewable technologies; heating systems; project insurance; energy efficiency; home insurance; building regulations; and more.
Organisers of the show will be raising funds for My Name’5 Doddie, the MND Foundation set up by the late rugby legend Doddie Weir, a fondly remembered exhibitor at the show.
Nick Noble, commercial & events director at Future PLC, commented, “It will be great to bring the show back in Scotland. We are looking forward to welcoming serious self-builders and home renovators, who see their home as their number one asset. The trend for self-build and home improvements continues post-lockdown and the recent increase in interest rates has resulted in many home owners choosing to improve their home rather than move.
“Visitors attending our show can source products and services that are not available elsewhere, and have the opportunity to obtain free advice from experts including Michael Holmes and Allan Corfield.
“The show provides businesses with a fast-track opportunity to connect face-to-face with consumers who are planning substantial investment in their home. Visitors, with their combination of live projects and substantial budgets, provides exhibitors with the opportunity to open new commercial streams and significant ROI. There’s been strong demand for stand space and time for companies to secure their spot at the May 2023 show.”
