Build It Live South West

There’s never been a better time to create the home of your dreams. Seek the inspiration you need to create a property that you will never want to leave, with Build It Live. Our interactive exhibitions take place annually in Kent, Oxfordshire and Exeter. They offer a wide range of advice clinics and one-to-one sessions for anyone looking to self build, renovate or extend their home.

Brought to you by the experts at Build It magazine incorporating SelfBuild & Design, these annual shows are designed to help you find everyday solutions to perfectly manage your home building or renovation project.

For the second time, the UK’s most practical self build and renovation show is coming to Westpoint Arena, Exeter. Build It Live South West will take place on 7 & 8 September 2024. Over the course of two days, you’ll be able to meet hundreds of suppliers, sit down for one-to-one consultations with industry experts, browse thousands of products and materials, and attend informative live talks about everything from finding land to designing your home and gaining planning consent.
