Running in tandem with the stand displays was an extensive and varied programme of seminars and workshops, complemented by skills demonstrations under the banner of the Retrofit Best Practice umbrella. The latter involved practical and inter-active presentations taking in insulation, heating products, controls and solar panels. Repeated at set times throughout the two days of the show, these attracted very large numbers.
Then there were the Product of the Show Awards. These are a key feature of the show and highlight – on a dedicated stand – the products and services deemed by an expert panel of assessors to be “best in show” in each of the categories listed (see panels).
Not surprisingly and given the scale and all-embracing nature of the show, almost 4,000 industry personnell attended, including contractors, architects, consulting engineers, property and facilities managers, project managers, etc.
More than anything else the Energy Show provided a forum for communication, the sharing of knowledge and information, a networking opportunity, and a route map as to the future of the industry. Roll on Energy Show 2014.
