Innovative new products, exciting seminars, and tons of giveways were just some of the highlights at this year's PHEX+ Alexandra Palace in London.
Thousands of installers came through the doors of the iconic venue on 20-21 June to discover new products, take part in exclusive competitions and learn more about what's going on in their industry.
This year's show introduced a wide range of new features, well-received by visitors and exhibitors alike.
The winners of the inaugural HVP Innovation Showcase were on display, giving installers the chance to get hands-on with some of the most innovative products available on the market.
#PHEXGIVES featured a huge number of great prizes including a flatscreen TV, England football tickets and a Nintendo Switch console given away by exhibitors at the show. A raffle helped to raise £469 for leading knife crime charity The Ben Kinsella Trust.
Peter Booth of GVB Plumbing & Heating (known on Twitter as @PBPlumber) said: "I had a great time at Phex Ally Pally, met a lot of plumbers and gas engineers I interact with on social media and saw some new products I wouldn’t have known about otherwise."
A packed seminar programme also saw leading speakers such as Anne Timpany, Director of On Tap Plumbers and Jon Thompson, Chief Executive of the APHC tackle key issues affecting the sector, like apprenticeships and the Each Home Counts Review.
Daniel Cheung, Trade Marketing Manager at Sentinel, said: "PHEX+ was a great show for us. We got to speak to loads of installers about our products and converted these conversations directly to sales of our new Vortex300 filter."
PHEX Manchester takes place at Old Trafford on 3-4 October, followed by PHEX Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on 14-15 November.
