Retro Expo relocates to London with an exciting new format and line up

10th October, 2013

In response to industry feedback, Retro Expo will be taking a different format this year. The two day event, now taking place on 05 and 06 December at the Business Design Centre in London, will comprise of five core elements:

•    The Retrofit Summit - a one day policy conference on 05 December exploring the refurbishment and energy efficient retrofit of existing buildings from a national, strategic perspective.
•    The Retrofit London Conference – supported by the Mayor of London, this event on 06 December will explore the challenges and opportunities of low carbon retrofits in the capital.
•    A series of workshops looking at the technical aspects of retrofits.
•    An exhibition of retrofit innovation featuring approximately 70 exhibitors including leading names such as BASF,  Kingspan, ABBE and SIG360 Retrofit
•    The Retro Expo Awards Ceremony

The Retrofit Summit builds on the success of last year’s Retro Expo, which took place over three days at the NEC and attracted over 3,000 visitors. Aimed at policy makers and senior personnel from the public, property, construction, legal, finance and project management sectors the Summit programme will follow two themes: Winning Business and Retrofit Better. The conference will look at how to engage with customers effectively and will examine the challenges of delivering retrofits in order to meet demand. Key note speakers include: Peter Whittington, Department for Business, Innovation & Skills; Solitaire Townsend, Futerra; Brian Berry, Federation of Master Builders; David Adams, Willmott Dixon Energy Services; and Terry McGivern, Institute for Sustainability.

The Retrofit London Conference, developed in partnership with the Institute for Sustainability, will draw upon the expertise of experienced retrofitters and disseminate best practice from clients who have already piloted retrofit projects, providing social housing stock landlords, businesses and other local stakeholders with strategic and practical support to better develop their approach. This event is one of 12 regional Retrofit Roadshows that is shining a spotlight on the low carbon building refurbishment and retrofit opportunities on a region by region basis across the UK.  
This year’s Retro Expo Awards have 12 categories recognising excellence in retrofit products, innovation, design and delivery across the domestic, commercial and public sector markets. Winners will be announced at The Retro Expo Award ceremony taking place following the Retrofit Summit on the evening of 05 December 2013 at the Business Design Centre in London.
