The last 18 months have been a challenging time for many people looking to create an individual home. Self builders and renovators have had to make big purchasing decisions without the benefits of face-to-face advice, or the ability visit showrooms and physically test out products like sliding doors, eco products and smart home systems in person.

Well, that’s about to change: the UK’s most practical self build and renovation event is back! Build It Live gives you the chance to experience first-hand how products look, what they feel like to use and – crucially – speak to experts in their fields as you make your specification decisions.

So come join our expert team, plus hundreds of reputable suppliers, and start moving your project forward!
