The Homebuilding & Renovating Show will be back on the road in 2021, but to ensure you can still get the expert advice you need for your project, we’ve transformed the show you know and love into a virtual experience.

The free event will be filled with advice, ideas and inspiration to help you turn your plans into reality. There’s no travel, and no risk, and you can enjoy the show from the comfort of your own home. 

What is the Virtual Homebuilding & Renovating Show?

The Virtual Homebuilding & Renovating Autumn Show, sponsored by Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), is a free online experience akin to the Homebuilding & Renovating Show. 

You’ll be able to connect with key experts and exhibitors over two days, and watch live seminars and masterclasses on a variety of topics, such as kitchen design and how to create a low energy home. 

The virtual show is designed for anyone looking to create their dream home. No matter what stage of your project you’re at, you’ll be able to find ideas and expert advice for your build at the show.
