    you should have left the typo in the subject, "expeditions and trade fairs" would have made for a much more interesting thread :-)

    Been to the last four Ecobuilds and watched it diminish in size and interest annually, I heard it was sold for £1 last year, a fair price, I won't be back though it depends on your industry and what you're looking for.

    For anyone with a Listed building or thinking about buying a Listed building there is a show I think at London Olympia in Early Feb. They also hold one later in the year at Harrogate.

    Homebuilding and Renovating Show NEC is very large and hence has lots of the eco-building companies as well as the "normal" companies.

    Batibouw in Brussels is massive. Something like 13 halls with vendors from several countries. I was impressed by the quality on display. Although Brexit will have made things expensive.

    Starts 22nd Feb but check because some days are trade/press only.

    I've found many of them pretty depressing. Grand Designs was full of kitchens and bi-folding doors, though they had a great green building section at one end which was a great introduction to a number of techniques that I had only read about, most importantly hempcrete which had sounded a bit eccentric until I actually saw it demonstrated. Eco build was okay I think, not as revolutionary as I had expected.

    Eco build was good in its early days but seems to have stepped into the shoes of the ideal home exhibition, not much eco any more. For me uPVC and conservatories are not green, nor bifold doors nor much of what is there.

    I like the permanent self build exhibition in Swindon, worth a visit and although not that eco is in my opinion better than the above.

    I agree, EcoBuild has gone downhill since it's move to Docklands.

    I usually leave feeling disappointed but also disappointed if I don't go; it's a no win situation! Part of the problem is, any company and their brother uses the word 'Eco' in their name or advertising literature and they are included. But it is in my opinion, the best of the bunch.

    Whatever happened to Inter-build which was amazing?
