PHEX is a cornerstone of the sector and in 2024 will celebrate its 30th year. Over the years the show has constantly evolved with the market to meet the needs of installers.

After a successful 2023 show, PHEX North will return to Old Trafford Football Stadium to provide the opportunity for plumbing and heating engineers to get hands-on with the latest products from across the sector.

  • PHEX North at Old Trafford is really good. Learning about the vast number of companies with a range of products new and old that can help me in the trade to reduce time and overhead is always important in the plumbing and heating industry.

    Michael Sheriff Heating Engineer
  • Great show, lots of new products on display and always good to be able to speak to suppliers/meet new people.

    Kieran Byron Project Manager
  • Enjoyed myself with the variety of trade stalls and the help from the staff who were operating the company stalls. Plenty of new ideas and specialised tools.

    John Brougham Heating Engineer
  • I attended with a new employee. The range of products displayed was far beyond what he had come into contact with. It was an educational trip and stimulated much discussion on the day and subsequently. Beyond the magazine, I find PHEX a very useful way of learning about new products and seeing them in action.

    Tom Wood Engineer

    David Beattie Training Manager
