The Scottish Homebuilding & Renovating Show returns to Glasgow


THE Scottish Homebuilding & Renovating Show is back in Glasgow for the first time in four years when it returns to the SEC on 20 and 21 May 2023.

The show will provide visitors with the opportunity to meet face-to-face with specialist companies and industry experts and find out everything they need to make their ideas a reality.

Hundreds of companies will showcase the latest products, from on-trend technologies right through to traditionally hand-crafted materials.  Exhibitors will cover a wide range topics including extensions, conversions, home DIY, planning permission, interiors, lighting; doors, windows, renewable technologies, heating systems, project finance and insurance, energy efficiency, building regulation.            

During the two-day exhibition, visitors will have access to expert advice at free seminars and masterclasses with content including sustainable heating, finances, planning permission tips, energy efficiency, eco living and architectural design

There will also be free one-to-one expert sessions available at The Advice Centre covering every project from first home alterations to a full-scale self-build. Experts will include architects, builders, finance and planning professional as well as one of the Homebuilding & Renovating Magazine Content team.

Energy efficiency will be a major focus for the show with new features designed to help visitors improve the energy efficiency of their home. New for 2023 will be the Home Energy Hours, a series of theatre presentations highlighting the latest trends in home energy. There will also be one-to-one sessions available at the Home Energy Academy where eco-energy experts will provide advice on making homes energy efficient, saving money on bills and reducing carbon footprint.

Nick Noble, commercial & events director at Future PLC, comments “It will be great to be back in Scotland. The trend for self-build and home improvements continues post-lockdown and the recent increase in interest rates has resulted in many home owners choosing to improve their home rather than move.  

“Whether you’re mid-way through a project or don’t know where to start, the Homebuilding & Renovating Show is brimming with advice and ideas. It’s a unique opportunity to swap months of scouring the internet for face-to-face consultations, attend specialist Masterclasses and discover the latest products and services – all under one roof.”

The organisers of the Show be raising funds for My Name’5 Doddie, the MND Foundation set up by Doddie Weir, a fondly remembered exhibitor at the show.
