What’s on at the show?
As a result of the show’s strong backing, its comprehensive seminar programme is bursting with high quality content that will make visiting well worthwhile, with the opportunity to learn new skills and get a heads up on developments in the industry.
The schedule kicks off with an introductory guide to under-floor heating systems designed to help those looking to capitalise on the current increase in demand for more efficient heating solutions. Headed by Howard Flood, Managing Director – Projects Division at Warmup PLC, the session will equip visitors with the knowledge they need to specify the right under-floor heating solution for the right building and customer requirement.
Sustainable lighting and wellbeing will also be on the agenda as Fanella Frost, Group Marketing & Business Development Director at Monodraught and Photonstar, discusses circadian rhythm, hybrid lighting and the Internet of Things. The focus then moves to the future of refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pumps, with a presentation around the direction technology, legislation and the industry as a whole is heading.
Rounding off the seminar programme will be a detailed look at overheating in homes. With the government and house building industry growing increasingly concerned about the gap between design and as-built energy performance, this session led by Nicola O’Connor, Project Manager at Zero Carbon Hub, will discuss the issue and present proposals for narrowing the gap.
