ECA Becomes Headline Sponsor Of ED&I Expo

Major new electrical industry event announced for 2017

A brand new national exhibition, aimed at the entire electrical and electronics industry, will be held next year at the world-renowned NEC in Birmingham by publishing and events group All Things Media (ATM).

‘The Electrical Design and Install Expo’ (ED&I) is being backed by leading electrical and building services trade body the Electrical Contractors’ Association (ECA), who will be the headline sponsor for the event.

ED&I will aim to bring everyone involved in the installation, design, specification, inspection, manufacturing and distribution of electrical products together under one roof.

The show will offer a unique opportunity to learn about and interact with the latest products and innovations, hear from industry experts, and network with thousands of industry professionals.

Billed as ‘the electrical event the industry has been crying out for’, the show will be shaped around discovering new technologies and services that can help to businesses to grow. Comprehensive seminars will offer valuable insights into the latest industry opportunities and trends, and the latest on policy and legislation, while an array of industry vendors will showcase their latest industry-leading products and services on the exhibition floor.

David Kitchener, managing director of ATM, commented:

“The ED&I Expo represents a real watershed moment in the electrical sector, allowing everyone involved in the industry to get together, share ideas, unearth new business opportunities and drive the industry forward. We expect to attract visitors from all over the UK and are extremely confident that the event will quickly become the “must attend” exhibition for senior level decision makers, contractors, specifiers, consultants, architects and designers, distributors, training providers, facilities managers and other key influencers.”

Steve Bratt, CEO of the ECA, added:

“The ECA is very pleased to be working with ATM on the ED&I Expo, which presents a unique opportunity for designers, installers, suppliers and manufacturers from across the industry, as well as showcasing what the industry has to offer to important clients and specifiers. With the ED&I Expo being held at the UK’s leading exhibition venue – the NEC in Birmingham – all the ingredients are in place to deliver hugely important new industry event next Autumn.”
