Virtual Homebuilding & Renovating Summer Show

Virtual Homebuilding and Renovating show

Following the postponement of 3 upcoming Homebuilding and Renovating (HB&R) shows originally scheduled to take place in May (Glasgow), June (Surrey) and July (National, Birmingham) 2020, HB&R will be combining elements of each to bring you the launch of The Virtual Homebuilding & Renovating Summer Show which will take place on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th July.

The event will replicate all the key components of our shows with exhibitor stands, masterclass speaking opportunities along with all the seminars and expert interaction that you associate with a Homebuilding Show. Despite the ongoing challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic, HB&R's homeowner surveying indicates that:

  • 94% are planning to continue with their project in the next 12 months
  • 86% are continuing to research their project in lockdown
  • 79% would like to see virtual events to be able to connect with exhibitors

If you are one of the 65,000 pre-registered visitors for the aforementioned shows, you already have access to this virtual event, and more tickets will be made available soon. Please check this page regularly for updates on this event and how to book.
