Unsurprisingly, the subject many were talking about was not the latest materials being used in housing or the latest technology being applied to energy management in housing blocks, but the new technology being used at the World Cup. The new VAR system being used in Russia has got everyone talking but maybe not for the right reasons.

Away from the World Cup, Housing 2018 opened on Tuesday in the sweltering Manchester heat, with the exhibition and conference providing welcome relief from both the sun and the football. The event seemed to be busier than it has been over the past few years with more companies and organisations exhibiting and more visitors attending.

From what we could see all the seminars and conference sessions were being well attended as well and importantly to us, the visitors to our stand were genuinely interested and appeared to be good prospects. It was also our opportunity to showcase our new SimpleKey Event Manager (SEM) and digital messaging board, both of which were received very well. It was clear that being able to see SimpleKey Web set up in one of Bamford’s doors, a new feature on our stand, was a significant advantage when discussing the benefits of the system.

We are hosting our dinner tonight, together with Bamfords, our chance to spend more time with valued contacts, but one thing is clear, whether it is this evening or during the day, cool clothing is the order of the day.
