Do you want to see the latest products from the leading companies in the roofing, cladding and insulation sectors? Hear about the key issues affecting your sector? or Pick the brains of the leading experts? Well you can do all this and much more at the RCI Show 2016.

The Ricoh Arena, Coventry, opens its doors for the RCI Show 2016 on 27 & 28 January 2016. The second installment of the UK’s number one show for the roofing, cladding and insulation sectors has brought together over 130 exhibitors including a great mix of manufacturers, suppliers, leading trade associations and governing bodies, all ready to show their latest products and offerings, plus provide guidance and advice on all the key issues. This year a number of technical experts and leading industry experts will be on hand to explain how visitors can save money and time on site; highlight the latest product developments, plus answer the key questions visitors may have on business, industry and product-related issues.

Leading players on show

Whether you are looking to see where your sector is headed or perhaps to diversify into new areas, the RCI Show 2016 has representation from the pitched, flat, liquid, single ply and green roofing sectors, plus metal cladding, fixing & fasteners and insulation manufacturers and suppliers, as well as all the latest PPE and safety equipment providers; basically if your business is the building envelope, we’ve brought together the leading players all under one roof.

Top demos and seminars The RCI Show 2016 will see the popular demo zones return, but bigger and better with ten manufacturers from various disciplines giving practical demonstrations of their latest offerings and enabling visitors to get up close and ask the experts. Perhaps you’ll find the product that will add something different to your business in 2016? Each day within one of the seminar theatres we will be hosting a debate on some of the key issues affecting our industry. A panel chaired by Ray Horwood, former chief executive of the NFRC, including roofing consultant and RCI Technical Note author Keith Roberts, the Construction Product Association’s Peter Capelhorn and Gary Wilburn of HPW Architects, will provide a lively debate on the key topics of how as an industry we can reduce call-backs on projects, and the importance of substituting with care when it comes to specification. These are issues that impact on projects throughout the UK, so make sure you don’t miss out.

As the issue of skills shortages and concerns around training continue to affect construction, the RCI Show has teamed up with CITB to explain what companies in our industry can do to find and develop skilled workers.

The Ricoh Arena is easily accessible by car or train from both the north and south, and there is plenty of free parking at the venue.

All visitors are also entitled to a free coffee and bacon roll on arrival courtesy of RCI Show Partner SIG Roofing, plus Brett Martin has proved there is such a thing as a free lunch by providing visitors with just that between the hours of 12.00pm and 2.30pm!

This is just a small snippet of what you can expect to see at the RCI Show 2016, and we will release further information in the coming months including our finalised speaker programme for the two Seminar Theatres.

The UK now has a dedicated annual, national exhibition to support the roofing, cladding and insulation sectors, so don’t miss out on this opportunity to see, touch and hear about what’s current, plus the future of the roofing, cladding and insulation sectors. The RCI Show 2016 really is the route to your success!
