Roofex has been launched by Marwood Events who run the successful UK Concrete Show at the same venue.
Show director Steven Callaghan said: “The UK roofing industry has historically had to make do with being a part of bigger, more general construction shows.
“Roofex will be the industry show, bringing the whole of the industry together to concentrate on just roofing and related products – every person in the aisles will have one thing on their minds”.
The inaugural 2013 show will feature top class CPD seminars, demo workshops and presentations with the aim of attracting architects and specifiers, engineers, contractors, merchants, distributors, local government and heritage roofing specialists.
Callaghan said: “Discussions with industry suppliers and manufacturers have confirmed the need for an industry showpiece.”
