Our show stands have been gathering sawdust since March, as Covid-19 made trade shows impossible across the country.  Homebuilding & Renovating Magazine put on some of the biggest shows of the year, including the National show at the NEC in May – all have been postponed until 2021.

Embracing technology and the evermore connected world we’re all getting used to, the second edition of their new virtual shows takes place on 26-27 September.

Although we know nothing beats a face-to-face meeting with potential clients, we’re embracing the essential changes the pandemic has caused and want to support our media partners and industry collaborators as we all make the best of the current situation.

The event will be hosted online for those who register to enjoy from the comfort of their own home, with all of the expert advice, inspiring sessions and access to the products and services you’d expect from a self-build show.

The Show:

  • Exhibition Hall – Ask questions, download brochures and arrange meetings with over 130 exhibitors, including Carpenter Oak – we’ll be on the live chat all weekend.
  • Main Stage – From a beginners guide to building your own home to kitchen and bathroom design masterclass, the Main Stage will cover it all, no matter what your project.
  • Masterclass Theatre – From the all important building systems to heating, interiors and renewable energy, hear expert advice from a wide range of companies.
  • Expert Advice Panels – Get up close and personal with an expert panel of planners, architects and Homebuilding & Renovating magazine writers.


We hope to ‘virtually’ meet you at the show – it could be the start of your Carpenter Oak journey with us.  Alternatively, you can call us on 01803 732 900 or contact us via our enquiry form if you have project details.  We are able to arrange Zoom meetings with you or visit your site whilst maintaining social distancing.
