Electricians attend regional shows in record numbers


With eight shows still to go, NICEIC and ELECSA’s latest TechTalk series has already been attended by a record number of electricians.   Over 1,700 contractors have registered to attend the 15 regional shows happening across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.   The NICEIC and ELECSA team are now gearing themselves up for the second phase of the series, which will see them visit the final eight locations of the series.   Darren Staniforth, group senior technical presenter for NICEIC and ELECSA said:   “We’ve had a great response to the series so far, this is solely down to the willingness of our contractors who want to expand their knowledge and progress in this forever changing industry.


  Our TechTalks are a great opportunity for our contractors to talk to us directly and discuss the latest developments in the industry and find out first-hand issues they want us to look at”.   More than 200 contractors attended each event in Wadebridge, Norfolk, Leeds and Chelmsford with other locations also proving popular.   This year’s TechTalk series are now CPD accredited, meaning attendees can use information from the day as part of their on-going professional development. 

Topics on the agenda include:

  • BS 5839 part 6
  • OLEV registration and EV update
  • EICR coding in line with the 18th edition
  • Technical Q&A and much more

Tickets cost just £25 and can be booked online at or calling 0333 015 6626.    Each event starts at 8:00am and finishes at 1.00pm. Every delegate that attends gets a breakfast roll and refreshments throughout the day, a complete set of 18th edition electrical pocket guides and a personalised CPD certificate.   For more information or to enquire about exhibiting at TechTalks please email [email protected]    The full list of remaining dates and locations for are listed below.
