The national trade show for the plumbing, heating and electrical industries is returning to Coventry Building Society Arena for its sixth year and will be welcoming a special guest from the world of sport. 

InstallerSHOW will take place at the venue from 28-30 September and is set to attract thousands of installers from across the UK. 

This year the show welcomes former Arsenal and England football star Ray Parlour (pictured right) who will be talking about his career on the InstallerPLAZA stage and visiting exhibitors around the show floor.

The show has grown since it was launched in 2015 and this year it is expanding with 25% more floor space to bring the number of exhibiting companies to over 150.

A Future Leaders initiative is being launched at the show to identify and promote leaders and influencers who will be delivering low carbon targets and sustainability in the future. 

This year also sees the launch of InstallerELECTRIC, which will feature a programme of seminars and demonstrations from manufacturers from across the electrical industry. 

InstallerSHOW takes place in the 6,000sqm indoor arena at Coventry Building Society Arena which has recently undergone a major refurbishment, including improved ventilation.

Mike Costain, InstallerSHOW event director, said: “Heating, plumbing and electric professionals have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic. This isn’t an industry that has stopped, and we’re expecting thousands from across the UK to join us this September. 

“It’s going to be our biggest ever event, with more attendees and exhibitors than before. We will be filling the entire main exhibition hall at Coventry Building Society Arena, which demonstrates how the event has grown over the last six years. 

“From installers and plumbers, to electricians and manufacturers, we’re proud to have grown into the go-to show for people working in these trades. 

“With so many of the industry’s top professionals joining us over the three days, it is a great opportunity to recognise the unsung heroes of the industry at our annual award ceremony – which has a focus on valuable community work. 

“To be returning to face-to-face events is fantastic for the industry and we’re looking forward to safely welcoming everyone this September.” 

Paul Michael, commercial director of Coventry Building Society Arena, said: “InstallerSHOW launched with us here and has gone from strength-to-strength. 

“It has been a great success at our venue over the past six years and this success has seen it outgrow the size of our venue and as a result move onto a new home for 2022.

“This year the show will be utilising the entirety of our indoor arena and is a great example of how Coventry Building Society Arena can facilitate the growth of shows over a number of years.”
