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.
