On the Road Proves a Successful Journey for NAPIT EXPO
A record number of electrical installers received free help and advice on how to get to grips with Amendment 3 at NAPIT EXPO on the Road, with a three-fold increase in attendees to the shows.
Aligning with the NAPIT Trade Association, NAPIT's annual one-day event was changed to a national, nine-location Roadshow this year to not only reach installers on their doorstep, but also hear their industry concerns.
Documenting the tour in pictures and videos, NAPIT have recently released a video of the highlights which you can view on YouTube at www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7OfwA7sGr4
Michael Andrews, the NAPIT Group Chief Executive, said:
EXPO has been a fantastic opportunity for us to not only support installers with the regulation changes, but also address concerns across a number of key industry issues.
Feedback at each of the events showed that over 98% of visitors got what they needed from the presentations to help them understand Amendment 3.
Many visitors to the seminars had nothing but praise including Benjamin Pratt of B Electrical Services who said:
Very useful. It cleared up some of the grey areas I had with the new regulations. I would definitely recommend to others.
Michael Andrews continued:
Ensuring all members were given the correct information whilst cutting through trade myths was the main focus for us and their feedback showed we achieved this. We continue to make them free of charge as part of our member support package and the change of format gave installers a greater opportunity to take advantage of our expert's knowledge, without cutting into their working day.
Having just reached the end of their successful tour NAPIT certainly aren't resting on their laurels, already using the feedback given to discuss new research projects on industry concerns. On top of this, NAPIT's technical experts are busy collating the questions from each Q&A session at the seminars to provide installers with the much sort after answers to burning trade questions.
Their commitment to tackling issues tradespeople face every day was confirmed as Michael Andrews continued:
When our members speak to us, we listen carefully. To be able to show how we are actively using their ideas to help shape our business and our industry has been great. We look forward to developing this to support our members for years to come.
