Bringing the industry together


The inaugural PLUMB POWER HEAT LIGHT EVENT Expo has helped bring the industry together under one roof to develop new business relationships.

In an environment of collaboration and knowledge sharing, this unique event was attended by a diverse range of industry professionals from across the entire construction spectrum. As well as those involved directly in the plumbing, mechanical, electrical and lighting sectors, the Plumb Power Heat Light Expo attracted architects, building contractors, M&E contractors and consultants along with representatives from both the public and private sectors.

“That was the strength of this event,” explained Karen McAvoy, Managing Director of event organisers, Karen McAvoy Publishing Ltd. “There is no doubt that we have all faced a

tough few years within the industry but events such as this are a way to focus on the positives and to bring everyone together.

“We wanted to create an environment where partnerships could be built or improved upon and I think we achieved that. This was the first time an event of this kind has been hosted in Northern Ireland and we are already talking to exhibitors and visitors to see how we can improve the next event in 2018.”

With over 100 exhibitors, the market-leading names from across the plumbing, mechanical, electrical and lighting sectors were all represented. Visitors also benefited from a range of seminars from industry experts and also the specialist business, tool and van zones.

Karen concluded, “We want to thank everyone who attended and also all the exhibitors who supported this event.”
