A warm welcome awaits at Wembley.

PHEX makes its Wembley debut

Published:  15 January, 2010

LONDON: Following a bumper attendance at Manchester United and Chelsea last autumn, PHEX - the UK's premier heating and ventilation exhibition is heading for Wembley on 28-29 April.

The impressive venue offers exhibitors and visitors a spacious arena together with all the additional facilities expected from the UK's top sports complex.


Visitors will be able to travel by coach, to and from the show, through participating merchants who will want to bring their customers to this eventful exhibition.

Ground tours will be available on both days and free lunches will be provided for all those attending.

The PHEX 2010 season kicks off on the 10-11 March at Villa Park, the home of Aston Villa FC. This high-profile, West Midlands venue is popular with the industry and this year, high attendance is expected.

Both exhibitions are almost fully subscribed and virtually all of the industry's major manufacturers or distributors have booked a stand.

According to recent independent research, over 60% of those attending PHEX in 2009 were heating and plumbing installers and builders' merchants. Eighteen per cent of visitors were from local government, housing and general construction sectors.

Ticket inserts will be available in a selection of the industry's trade press in February. For further show information, visit the website.
