Back by popular demand, CEF LIVE returns to Birmingham’s NEC Arena on the 8-9 June.
Hosted by CEF, the UK’s expert supplier of electrical products and services, this year’s event runs across two days and will feature industry leading brands, exclusive on-the-day offers and vital information about upcoming industry changes.
Ahead of the release of The 18th Edition of the IET Wiring Regulations later this year, attendees will gain a first glimpse of how the new legislation could affect the way they work when they come into force and hear from industry experts on how to put the changes into practice. There will also be seminar sessions on the latest trends and technologies, including a talk from industry legend and NICEIC’s senior marketing and events engineer, Tony Cable. CEF LIVE will be the last chance to see Tony speak in a professional capacity following his plans to retire later in the year.
Alongside the speakers, over 45 top electrical brands will be at the show with many offering exclusive, on-the-day deals at prices that can’t be repeated. Those signed up so far include DeWALT, Milwaukee, Klein Tools, Schneider, Eaton, 3M and Aico, along with technology innovators Nest and Hive. On stand, visitors will be able to take part in live demonstrations and try out the latest new products.
In a new development for the 2017 event, the additional second day of CEF LIVE will have a special focus on young professionals, with a host of activities designed specifically for those entering the trade. Supportive workshops and fun skills challenges will be available for apprentices, offering guidance on how to get ahead in the electrical industry.
Chris Ashworth, General Manager, CEF said: “Our first CEF LIVE in 2015 was an incredible success and attracted a fantastic turnout. As a result of customer feedback, we can promise that this year’s event is set to be even bigger and better.
“Keeping up-to-date with the latest trends in our sector, as well as being aware of key details around soon to be released regulations, is vitally important for professionals working across the electrical sector. With this in mind, CEF LIVE provides the perfect opportunity to find out more about the widely anticipated 18th Edition and pick up some of the latest products at unbeatable prices.”
