1-Recently Updated6Howard Chapman, Buildingtalk Editor, reviews the RCI Show held at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry last week and invites feedback from Exhibitors and Visitors at this trade event.

This dedicated roofing, cladding and insulation trade event, held last week in Coventry, seemed focused and busy with 130 exhibitors including manufacturers, suppliers, installers and trade associations.

The 2 day event offered CPD’s, demonstrations, a CITB drop-in clinic, live debates.

There was great hospitality at the show, including free coffee & bacon roll breakfast, and a lunch for all provided by Brett Martin. There was also free parking.
