The Yorkshire Event Centre (YEC) in Harrogate will host the launch of Hamerville Media Group’s newest show in 2016.
Professional Builder Live will capitalise on the strong reputation of the publication, which has been providing industry information and insight to professional builders and tradesmen for over thirty years. The live event will debut in June 2016 alongside successful sister shows, Toolfair and Elex, to create two days of constructive opportunities.
“We are delighted to be launching such a highly anticipated show as Professional Builder Live at the Yorkshire Event Centre”, said Stephen Shannon, Hamerville’s financial director. “The magazine has a distribution of 120,000, providing advice and information to primarily small-to-medium sized builders and allied tradesmen. The show will enable readers to see, touch and try all the latest building products that they need to know about. The YEC provides an ideal location for this, having the space and flexibility to host all three shows over the same week with ease.”
Paul Ashton, head of sales at YEC, commented “We’re delighted to be extending our relationship with Hamerville, and to host this new event for the important construction sector. We are increasing the number of trade exhibitions at YEC and the launch of Professional Builder Live at our venue is evidence of the growing recognition of YEC as a serious proposition for organisers.”
YEC is currently undergoing construction work which will result in the state-of-the-art, clear-span New Hall 1 that will host Toolfair and Elex, whilst connecting to Professional Builder Live in Hall 2. The project is being documented by a time-lapse camera and can be seen on YEC’s website.
