The PHEX Chelsea exhibition has successfully concluded this year's PHEX series with an increase in visitor numbers.

Over 3,500 installers and contractors came through the doors during the event, filling the aisles and making sure that over 100 exhibition stands were kept busy throughout the two days.

Working closely with the main national plumbing and heating merchants, over 75 coaches delivered their customers direct to the event. Hospitality areas for PTS, HPS, Grahams and Plumbase offered visitors an area away from the busy main hall and a chance to talk with the merchant's key suppliers.

Peter Wilson from HPS said: “PHEX Chelsea 2011 has been the busiest PHEX exhibition to date for HPS. We estimate we had over 800 customers to our room over the two days. We had a number of suppliers in our room with offers on the day, including interactive games and raffles which all raised money for our chosen charity, Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.
