PHEX+ delivers at Ally Pally

Standfirst                      London’s Alexandra Palace, in North London, played host to the inaugural PHEX+ exhibition last month.   Over 1,700 installers from across the heating and plumbing sector, took the opportunity to visit, network and speak with manufacturers about all the latest product innovations. However, this was the first time in the history of the regional shows, that PHEX had representation from the commercial sector. Alongside a busy programme of seminars and CPD sessions, which included presentations from B&ES, DECC and Gas Safe Register, exhibitors took the opportunity to launch their latest product ranges and initiatives. Among them, Ideal Standard launched its first ever installer loyalty scheme – the Ideal PRO. The company invited PHEX visitors to pre-register for the scheme, which will formally begin on 1 August. Water treatment manufacturer, Sentinel, meanwhile, attracted the crowds with the Sentinel Reaction wall, where the highest scorer on each day won an iPad Mini. Mira Showers constructed a miniature golf course using the company’s Flight shower trays to attract visitors to have a try at its ‘hole in one’ competition, also promoting the trays anti-slip features. The company also promoted its golden ticket competition, which gives installers the chance to win a solid gold bar with every Flight purchase. Viessmann, meanwhile, enjoyed a “great response” to its toolkit promotion, offering installers a branded toolkit for boiler maintenance when they ordered a Vitodens 111-W at the show. Baxi took the opportunity of meeting with a large base of customers to promote its installer training and loyalty scheme. Area sales manager, Michael Boyle, said he was pleased with the number that signed up for product training during the exhibition.     STANDING ROOM ONLY The Gas Safe Register seminar was standing room only, as the Register showed installers how it works to combat unregistered tradespeople, as well as technical updates on the very latest legislative changes affecting the gas heating industry. Meanwhile, the Building & Engineering Services Association (B&ES) held a seminar discussing the topical issue of late payments, and why it’s so important for businesses to be aware of any potential cash flow problems. Rob Driscoll, head of commercial and legal at B&ES, advised installers: “The biggest problem facing anybody operating in plumbing or heating sectors is really this idea that your costs go up before your prices do.” Speaking at the show, PHEX+ events manager, Claire Tilbury, commented: “The show was a huge success, with many happy exhibitors and visitors. The venue proved a resounding success and the transport links worked very well. PHEX+ was a perfect way to start the PHEX year.”   The PHEX exhibition series continues later this year, travelling to Manchester United Football Club on 15 and 16 October, before ending at Chelsea Football Club on 12 and 13 November.
