Recently the distinction between general homes shows and self build exhibitions has lost strength. Many self build events have introduced non-core products in an attempt to boost floor size and increase footfall, weakening visitor quality and the likelihood of leads. At Build It Live we are dedicated to maintaining our self build roots, to make sure our shows only target serious self builders and renovators. We’re passionate about remaining as practical and tailored to home building as possible and we want you to share in that passion. When you exhibit at Build It Live, you’ll be sure that you’re meeting the right people in the right area.
Read our digital Sales Brochure here, explaining everything you need to know about Build It Live and our passion for self build.
It is proven that exhibitions are one of the strongest sales lead generators, since customers are more likely to spend money with companies they have met in person. Face-to-face communication makes it easier to promote your strengths, spread the message about your products and services, gain brand awareness and improve word-of-mouth about your company.
We select exhibiting companies for their relevance to the market – in fact we reject companies if we believe they don’t suit our audience. Therefore our shows deliver higher quality visitors right to your business.
The 2016 Build It Live shows welcomed over 16,000 people, the majority with active projects. 67% of them were ready to go or underway with their projects, 42% were prepared to spend between £125,000 and £5000,000 and 61% had committed to travelling over 45 minutes to attend, proving the quality of our audience and the attraction of our shows.
The varied locations of our three annual shows means accessing affluent self build pockets across the UK is easier than ever. This February our Kent and Manchester shows will tap into the lucrative South East region, as well as Cheshire and the whole of the North West.
