The number of visitors attending The Homebuilding & Renovating Shows who are working on a live project is said to be increasing year-on-year, according to new research from the event organisers Future PLC. The last show of 2017 showed that 80% of visitors were undertaking a live project.
As a result, the organisers are now issuing a call for entry to those that are interesting in exhibiting at this year’s London and Harrogate events taking place in ExCeL between September 21-23, and HCC from November 2-4.
According to the recent show survey, 32% of the audience had over £100k to spend and 84% made or considered making a purchase as a result of attending the show. For exhibitors, this is said to provide significant benefits, as the main reason the majority of visitors attend the shows is said to be to find the right products and services for their upcoming or current projects.
In light of the new GDPR legislation, the event is also an opportunity for exhibitors to meet new clients face-to-face and shore-up their databases with fresh quality and relevant contacts.
Nick Noble, commercial and events director at Future PLC, said: “The Homebuilding & Renovating Shows are the go-to events for any serious self-builder or renovator. From our research, we know that we attract committed, serious visitors who have live projects and are very passionate about their building and renovating works. We’re delighted that we can bring the latest products in the industry directly to the individuals who are most excited to see them. At our London show last year, 53% of visitors admitted that they do not visit any other show, as The Homebuilding & Renovating Show has everything they need under one roof.”
The events are designed to deliver advice and resources for visitors keen on building their own home or renovating it. They are said to 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.
The Homebuilding & Renovating Show’s portfolio consists of seven shows this year, covering key venues including Birmingham, London, Harrogate, Glasgow, Surrey, Somerset, Edinburgh, and nearby affluent areas. In addition to these locations, the event organisers are planning the brand’s expansion by launching another exhibition at Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre in January 2019.
