Builders are in high demand in 2022, as evidenced by the thousands of visitors and enthusiastic crowd comments at the National Homebuilding and Renovating Show in Birmingham, which ran from 24 to 27 March. Each day, the NEC was packed with nearly 8,000 homeowners looking for advice and ideas for their next project.

The FMB attends the show which runs across the UK to help promote our Find a Builder service and to raise awareness of the benefits of choosing a Master Builder company.

Over the four days the show ran, our members also volunteered their time in the Advice Centre to offer guidance to homeowners planning a renovation, extension or full new build project.

The appointment slots with FMB members were quickly booked out for the four days. We would like to thank all who dedicated their time, including

Nicola De Sousa also delivered a presentation at the Masterclass Theatre at the Show, which was received well as consumers came to find us on the FMB stand to compliment her delivery.
