Who can believe we are already 4 months into 2017, have said "Toodle-pip" to Winter and are speeding through our Spring events faster than Dom’s Dodge Ice Charger in Fast & Furious! 
Last month was extremely eventful for Coventry with two very different shows, IntralogisteX and Bridges 2017, both took place at the Ricoh Arena. We have already taken hotel bookings for these events next year!
15 minutes from Coventry (maybe 5 minutes in a Dodge Ice Charger?), just up the M6, Birmingham’s NEC hosted the biggest homebuilding and renovating event in the UK, the National Homebuilding & Renovating Show. This popular annual exhibition has a huge 40,000 visitors and 400 exhibitors.
Sign & Digital opened their doors at The NEC last month with over 180 leading suppliers showcasing the latest products and services for the sign making, display solutions and digital printing sectors. The event is set to take place again in 2018.
Next week, The Academies Show takes place at ExCeL London. This free to attend, one day event on 26 April, has 100’s of speakers and aims to help schools and academies to overcome challenges, improve standards and deliver better outcomes. 
Installer2017 is back in May! This national heating and plumbing show is scheduled once again at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry. The focus of Installer2017 is to let installers get hands-on with the latest products – to touch them, feel them and use them. A part of the show is InstallerINVENT, this gives the industry’s inventors the chance to showcase their products to their target audience.
May sees the return of Railtex, the largest rail exhibition in the UK for over 20 years! Its role is to facilitate trade, provide unique networking opportunities and educational sessions – over three days under one roof at the NEC in Birmingham. Railtex attracts international visitors and exhibitors as well as industry leading keynote speakers – all of which provide the ideal platform for the industry to come together and do business.
Scottish visitors will be making their way to the Homebuilding & Renovating Show at the SECC, Glasgow. The Scottish Homebuilding & Renovating Show, taking place at the end of May, is the go-to exhibition for self-builders and renovators.
At the end of May, the NEC in Birmingham is the hosting venue for edieLIVE, with hundreds of exhibitors and expert-led free seminars to attend, it is the only event for sustainability and environment professionals to pinpoint innovation, source new suppliers and learn from peers. Co-located is Utility Week Live, at this event, visitors can explore the innovations and technologies that are transforming utilities and meet the people who are driving this change. 
Over the Spring Bank Holiday, Birmingham will be inundated with visitors attending The Vaper Expo UK at The NEC. Winner of Vapouround Magazine’s ‘Best Trade Show 2016’, the event is set to be the biggest vaping event in Europe, with companies from all over the world exhibiting at the show.
