Brighton’s Eco Technology Show has added a raft of new expert speakers to its already powerful line-up, ahead of what is shaping up to be its biggest event yet. The free programme of over 70 seminars covers some of the latest build-related discussion points and trends.

These will join key speakers such as former Renewable Energy Association CEO Gaynor Hartnell and Andy Lewry of BRE, who will discuss the renewables marketplace and latest solutions for building energy management respectively.
At the Eco Technology Show, builders and installers will also get the opportunity to network with other professionals and exchange ideas. There are five meeting rooms and a communications hub with free advice from experts.
New exhibitors that will interest build professionals include Waterblade, which is showcasing its innovative water saving device for taps and Skyrad which combines solar panels with patented insulation for cost efficient heating and hot waters systems.
Eco Technology Show director Nicola Gunstone, said:
“Energy prices will only get higher, so buyers’ interest in energy efficiency and eco technology is at an all-time high. Our aim is to support build professionals by demonstrating the latest ideas on how to deliver tangible and ongoing benefits to clients through energy efficient buildings.”
