Returning to Alexandra Palace for its third year, PHEX+ has established itself as a key event not only for domestic and commercial engineers, but contractors, specifiers and facilities managers in the HVAC industry.

Taking place from 18 to 19 May, the plumbing and heating exhibition is playing host to more than 100 exhibitors, specialising in everything from sanitaryware and pipe systems to tools and training.

The free event opens its doors at 10am and visitors who arrive before 11am can even enjoy a bacon roll on the house.

Visitors have given positive feedback to the show over the last few years, praising the venue, number of exhibitors and the free transport.

“An excellent exhibition with great products on show,” said Phillip Barnes. “It's an exhibition that needs several visits to talk to manufacturers and sample the products on display.”

Angela Garner agreed, saying: “The PHEX+ exhibition is an event not to be missed in our area. It is well organised with pre-registration and free transport.”

PHEX+ offers the perfect opportunity to learn about new products and services and many exhibitors will also be offering exclusive show discounts and competitions.

The venue is easy to access from north of London in particular, with 1,500 free parking spaces for visitors, as well as good transport links from nearby train stations and free coach travel from participating merchant branches.

“The beauty of PHEX+ is that it’s relevant for everyone from one man bands to large contractors and housing associations,” said event organiser Claire Tilbury. “Meeting and greeting people face-to-face can be so important in this line of work and the show also offers the opportunity for further discussion of projects and deals to be worked out.”

This year PHEX+ has taken feedback from visitors to tailor its Tech Talks programme, which includes presentations from a number of trade associations as well as practical training sessions from leading manufacturers.

Gas Safe Register will be delivering a series of seminars which set out exactly what role the Register has to play in industry and provides some updates on key industry issues.

Also taking to the stage, the Energy Saving Trust and Chartered Institute of Plumbing & Heating Engineering will be addressing topical issues likely to affect the future growth of industry.
