The InstallerSHOW, what an event that was!

In June, OFTEC exhibited at the annual InstallerSHOW – the UK’s biggest heating, plumbing and electrical trade show – which took place at the UK’s top exhibition venue, the NEC, Birmingham. The show had doubled in size from previous years with over 300 of the industry’s leading innovators in heat, water, air, and energy exhibiting.

The show was a huge success for OFTEC. The exhibition stand was very busy at all times, with many engaging conversations with registered technicians, industry experts and novices alike.

OFTEC used the event to officially launch its new heat pump training courses and assessments to the industry, at what is an exciting time for OFTEC and the renewable sector. The exhibition stand also showcased OFTEC’s role as a one-stop registration solution for all non-gas heating technicians, whether working in traditional or renewable technologies.

Alongside the registration and training information, OFTEC also had information about its work on renewable liquid fuels such as HVO, and the role they can play in decarbonising off grid homes.

Paul Rose, OFTEC CEO, said: “InstallerSHOW gave us access to thousands of industry professionals at a time when we were launching an important new service. Our aim in exhibiting was to promote the highest professional and technical standards for technicians and businesses working in the industry and, in doing so, support the needs of heating users across the UK. Heat pumps will have an important role to play in the future of heating, so I’m pleased we can play our part by offering our new high quality training course. I’m confident there will also be a significant role for renewable liquid fuels, so it was great to be able to highlight the need for a technology inclusive heat policy.”

The event was such a success that OFTEC has already booked to attend again in 2023.
