Taking place at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, the RCI Show is a freshly introduced event which will showcase the chief services and products currently available in the construction industry.

The show has been introduced to celebrate the many achievements of firms within the sector, especially those involved within the roofing, cladding and insulation industry. Projects from specification to completion and everything in between are set to be recognised during the RCI Show and numerous exhibitors will be joining together to acknowledge other associated trades. Unity Media organised the event in a bid to serve recognition to the roofing, cladding and insulation industry.

During the two day event CPD training is on offer in the venue’s main hall daily, for new recruits and old. Offering expert advice key personnel from the industry are available to help recruits maintain checks of their businesses. Additionally, seminars are also scheduled in the main hall with speeches from key industry speakers regarding regulations, legislation and important issues within the construction sector.

Furthermore live demos give observers the chance to scrutinise the latest products and services on offer. It is important for tradesmen to view products in action and have the opportunity to showcase their own products and demonstrate how they are used or installed. The arena’s 800sqm hall space is available for exhibitors to stage training sessions via seminars or practical displays. The main hall incorporates two seminar areas, where key industry speakers will discuss their chosen subjects.

The show is designed to attract specific members of the construction industry including Roofing and Cladding Contractors, Developers, General Building Contractors, Local Authorities, Private and Public Specifiers, Architects, Surveyors, Quantity surveyors, Housing Associations, Roofing and building merchants, RSL’s and HSE’s. Exhibitors at the show include ALM HM, Competent Roofer, Shorguard, Metal Solutions, Swish Building Products, the NFRC and many, many more.

The RCI team has a significant marketing budget and so the event promises to be an exciting exhibition. CIB Communications, the event’s official PR Agency specialise in many sectors involving built environments; and with their extensive experience and contacts they are ideally placed to spread word of the exhibitions and stretch the success.

Across the roofing and building sectors the RCI Show has allocated funds and resources for the publication of over 25 B2B promotional pamphlets. Furthermore in a bid to attract quality visitors digital media is heavily relied upon to market the event via print media, including HTML, E-zines, E-blasts, Facebook and Twitter and direct marketing. The event is also receiving nationwide advertising on Talksport Radio.

The RCI team ensures that all guests are treated excellently and encouraged to come back the following year. There are numerous incentives to entice members back such as a free three months trial sales leads to every visitor worth £800; as well as the RCI discount voucher cheque book offering the exhibitor the chance to offer discounts and prizes to visitors in order to attract them to their stands. Furthermore, as an exhibitor the very opportunity to showcase products and services with available discounts is rewarding in itself, with many potential benefits.

RCI Show Event Director Tony Brown said:

“Since its launch back in September 2013, I am extremely pleased with the support we have received from the industry, and this has enabled us to make huge strides in bringing together the biggest roofing show ever to be staged in the UK, which ticks all the boxes for both visitors and exhibitors.”
