Dates and Venue

The Installer Show 2024 has a packed event timetable and will be held over three days at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham from June 25 to June 27, 2024. The 2024 event promises to be larger than ever before, with free entry for visitors and fifty percent more space for exhibitors. This is because the 2024 event will be held in both of the NEC’s two largest halls, numbers four and five, for the first time.

The NEC is located in Marston Green, Birmingham and is the largest exhibition centre in the country, making it the UK’s number one destination for large and important exhibitions. The venue has a very prestigious history, having been officially opened in 1976 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Today, the NEC has grown and has 18 exhibition halls ranging in size from the smallest, at 4,950 square metres, to the largest, at 24,870 square metres. Most of these halls have several entrance points for vehicles, making it easier for exhibitors to access the show floor.

Since its opening almost 48 years ago, the NEC Birmingham has won many awards that add to the prestige of this attractive venue. Amongst others, the NEC has won the AEO Excellence “Venue of the Year” award for its size class on five separate occasions. It also won the EN Awards’ “Best Venue” award for 2017. These accolades highlight the reputation of any exhibition event held at the NEC, and InstallerSHOW is no exception.
