A wealth of experience:
The Plumbing & Heating series of exhibitions (PHEX) is organised by Brintex, which has over 50 years’ experience in organising trade fairs and exhibitions. It is now one of the largest independent exhibition and conference organising companies in the UK.
Brintex is the exhibition division of the Hemming Group, a privately owned media organisation with over 120 years’ of publishing experience. The company produces a host of high quality magazines, digital products and live events across a range of domestic and international business-to-business and public sector markets.
Unrivalled commitment to a lucrative industry:
The PHEX exhibition series was launched in 1994 as a unique alternative to national trade events. The main aim of PHEX was to deliver easily accessible, regional based trade events for the installer, contractor and local authority sector. We chose strategically placed and exciting sports venues in major conurbation areas to ensure that we optimised footfall throughout the series of events.
Working closely with key trade associations, industry bodies, national and independent merchants and media partners, the appeal of our exhibition series to visitors and exhibitors alike went from strength and strength. This was in stark contrast to the main national exhibitions in the UK and further endorsed our decision to work on a regional basis.
HVP - The perfect media partner for the PHEX exhibition series
For over 37 years, Heating, Ventilating & Plumbing magazine has been reporting at the forefront of the HVAC industry, with coverage on a wide variety of market sectors including boilers, renewable energy, bathrooms, heating controls, radiators and training.
HVP magazine has a unique distribution channel within our industry. It reaches the highest requested, audited readership of active buyers and specifiers available in our sector. In addition, we have an exclusive distribution partnership in place with the Wolseley Group, supplying the national customers of Plumb Center and Parts Center with regular copies of HVP. This offers our advertisers a massive monthly circulation in excess of 50,000.
PHEX and PHEX+ are the most important UK industry trade exhibitions for the domestic and commercial heating, plumbing and renewables sector.
The core values of PHEX remain unchanged to this day: provide an exciting and lively environment for suppliers to meet, influence and sell to potential customers and re-establish client relationships.
Neil Mattock, Marketing Director – Vokèra Limited
Vokèra has been a long-term supporter of the PHEX shows, as the format allows visitors to see many exhibitors in a relatively short period of time. PHEX+, with the addition of commercial heating, adds a further dimension to the format and Alexandra Palace is an interesting and exciting venue with great facilities. Vokèra looks forward to supporting PHEX during 2016. www.vokera.co.uk
