Homebuilding and Renovating show

Take a deep-dive into the industry at the Homebuilding & Renovating Show at the ExCel in London.  

We managed to grab the ever-busy Michael Holmes, Director of Content and Product Development for the Homebuilding & Renovation Show, for a Q&A about the upcoming event due to take place at the end of September.
