Open to all guests, AluK's Expert Zone provides the perfect platform to gain expert insight and knowledge from the best in the business. What’s more, it also provides the opportunity to ask any burning questions and really put them to the test. Choose from the seminars below and sign-up today.

Tuesday 23rd May

11.30 – 12.15
The state of the market debate | AluK and industry panellists
Experts from across the glazing and construction industry will be discussing the current state of the market and debating what the future holds. Covering the good, the bad and even the ugly, this panel will also explore the impact of the greater construction market on the glazing industry. Audience members will be encouraged to join in by sharing their own views on how the changing market will affect the industry over the next five years. Sign Up

13.00 – 14.15
QUALICOAT and paint finishes | AkzoNobel
While aluminium is unquestionably eye-catching in its own right, sometimes a little extra standout is required. That’s where powder coating comes in. Our friends at AkzoNobel will be joining us for a seminar to discuss all the colours, finishes and designs available for our aluminium window and door systems. They’ll also explain the importance of the QUALICOAT standard and why it can make a real long-term difference to your success. Sign Up

Aluminium – The material of choice | Justin Ratcliffe, CAB
Justin Ratcliffe, president of the Council for Aluminium in Building (CAB), will be joining us in our Expert Zone to provide an overview into the expanding market, upcoming trends and exciting opportunities for those in the fenestration industry. In addition to gaining a valuable insight into the current activity of CAB, the seminar will also cover how aluminium is being adopted further in the construction industry. Clever stuff aluminium. Sign Up

New product innovation | AluK
This seminar provides guests with their first real chance to get up close and personal with the new AluK products being launched at the show.

Document Q and you | Adam Osbourne, BM TRADA
Confused by all the recent Approved Document Q (ADQ) changes? You’re certainly not alone. This seminar, deliver by our friends at BM TRADA, will help separate fact from fiction. In less than an hour you’ll understand where ADQ applies, whether it’s included within building regulations and how to easily demonstrate compliance. And that’s really just the beginning. You’ll also discover where third-party certification sits and how you can widen your product coverage beyond test reports. Sign Up

Thursday 25th May 

11.00 – 12:15
Making the jump to aluminium | AluK
Lightweight, strong and almost 100% recyclable. It’s fair to say aluminium is here to stay. So if you’re looking to make the switch from UPVC to aluminium, don’t miss our ‘making the jump’ seminar. Covering everything from pricing and fitting, to fabrication and efficiency, we’ll help you take full advantage of the increased customer demand for this most versatile of materials. Sign Up

14:00 – 14:45
Estimating software and training | AluK
When it comes to estimating, vague guesswork is never an option. That’s why this seminar is particularly useful for fabricators looking to add aluminium into their business. It specifically covers how aluminium systems are estimated and programmed using LogiKal software, going into specific detail about how to efficiently estimate and get the most from the software. The seminar also covers all the LogiKal training and practical installation courses available to help you grow your business. Sign Up
