There has been strong industry endorsement of the PHEX and PHEX+ exhibitions following the successful PHEX+ event held in London in May.
20 and 21 May 2015 marked the return of PHEX+ Plumbing and Heating exhibition to the Alexandra Palace in London. This unique event showcased the latest new products and technology available for the domestic and commercial heating and plumbing sectors, with an extensive training and seminar programme on energy efficiency, gas safety, ErP and best practice.
Throughout the two days, the event attracted a high level of support from plumbers, gas heating installers, commercial contractors and M&E engineers. It was evident that the visitors had a real appetite for sourcing new potential products for their business, while the collaboration with HVP magazine ensured that the Tech Talk training programme was a big success for all concerned.
Event manager Claire Tilbury said: "Our goal was to successfully build on last year's launch event, delivering an exhibition and training programme that directly matched the needs of our visitors. Following the event, it is extremely satisfying to receive so many strong endorsements of the show from key industry manufacturers."
"Vokèra has been a long-term supporter of the PHEX shows, as the format allows visitors to see many exhibitors in a relatively short period of time. PHEX+, with the addition of commercial heating, adds a further dimension to the format and Alexandra Palace is an interesting and exciting venue with great facilities. Vokèra looks forward to supporting PHEX during 2016."
"PHEX has always been a great exhibition for us to interact with installers. It provides an ideal platform where by we can gain valuable feedback on our products and solutions whilst being able to showcase and demonstrate our range."

"OSO Hotwater have supported PHEX exhibitions for many years and find the visitor quality and quantity consistently good. The exhibitions allow us the opportunity to show the innovative design and unique benefits of OSO stainless steel unvented hot water cylinders. PHEX+ in the spring at Alexandra Palace has been a very positive new addition to the calendar, and complements the established Stamford Bridge exhibition at a 6 monthly interval. The extra space available at Ally Pally allows a very comfortable environment for both exhibitors and visitors alike."

"For Logic4Training, being at the 2015 PHEX+ show at Alexander Palace was a great opportunity to get in front of both existing and new customers. With a wider range of exhibitors and more visitors we are looking forward to this becoming the go to show for our industry.”
"For many years, PHEX has been a regular fixture on the LOCTITE exhibition calendar. It’s always lively, well attended and most importantly it gives us direct contact with end users, allowing them to discover the benefits of our products first hand. Sales of our thread sealing cord, LOCTITE 55, have certainly been boosted by the hands-on experience at PHEX and at this year's show we are confident this will apply to its anaerobic counterpart LOCTITE 577."
"PHEX has been our go to show since we brought Delta Dore to the UK in 2010, we have seen many changes and many locations to bring us closer and closer to our customers. In the last few years the show has gone from strength to strength and will remain our first choice for many years to come."

"Our stand at PHEX+ featured products that we manufacture specifically for independent merchants and their customers. Over the two days of the exhibition, our stand was busy and we received nearly 300 leads for our sales team to follow up. Visitors were very interested in our products and also our training courses. Our sales people who manned the stand have been very positive about the event, and were extremely pleased with the quality of delegates who attended. Certainly we feel the event demonstrated a general upturn in the heating market."
