CEF LIVE returns for 2017
21 February 2017
CEF LIVE is returning to Birmingham’s NEC Arena on the 8th- 9th June, 2017.
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 IET Wiring Regulations 18th Edition, expected to publish in July 2018, visitors can gain a first insight into how the new edition of BS7671 could affect the way they work and hear from industry experts on the key changes and additions available to view in The Draft for Public Comment document.
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. 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 trial the latest new products.
In a new development for the 2017 event, the 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 also be available for attendees looking to boost their industry knowledge.
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 all professionals working with electrical products.
"With this in mind, CEF LIVE provides the perfect opportunity to find out more about the widely anticipated 18th Edition and pick up some fantastic products at unbeatable prices.”
