I can strongly recommend the following event:
Held each spring at Manchester Central (GMex), the Greenbuild Expo this year is on the 8th & 9th May 2013, and it is the sustainable building and refurbishment event for the professional.
It’s free to attend, of specific interest may be the Green marketing sessions or some of the sessions relating to energy savings for businesses. There are also sessions on smart buildings, materials, methods, insulation, renewables and of course the Green Deal and ECO debates and presentations addressing fuel poverty and concentrating on large scale schemes like Warm Up North and the very soon to be announced Manchester City Council and AGMA programme (the 2nd largest in the UK!).
There are still limited spaces available should you be interested in exhibiting, but if not I hope you can take the time out to visit and perhaps consider being part of it in 2014.

(No conflict of interest)
