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.
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 three Build It Live shows welcome over 16,000 visitors annually, the majority with active projects. In 2016 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 tapped into the lucrative South East region, as well as Cheshire and the whole of the North West. Meanwhile our Bicester show in June allowed exhibitors to meet high-spending customers at the only dedicated show for the lucrative Western Home Counties.
Build It Live delivers over 16,000 visitors across the three shows, most with active projects, and ready to invest in products and services for their self build projects. The show replicates Build It magazine in 3D, ensuring visitors interact face-to-face with our magazine editors, exhibitors and industry experts and leave with all the inspiration and expert advice they need to progress their projects.
5,945 visitors attended the 5th Build It Live South East in February 2017. This is now established as the premier self build event tapping into the lucrative South East regions – a hotspot for self builds.
This year’s South East show took place at the purpose-built, award winning Kent Event Centre, just North of Maidstone between the M25, M2 and M20 motorways and within easy reach for the whole of the South East.
5,781 visitors attended the 3rd Build It Live North West, which took place at EventCity in Manchester in February. The show brought visitors from Cheshire and the whole of the North West region.
5,136 visitors attended the 2nd Build It Live Bicester, which took place at Bicester Heritage, just 5 minutes away from Graven Hill, the UK’s largest self build scheme. Visitors came from the spread of Home Counties to the west of London including Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
