Why Exhibit with us?

The award-winning National Self Build & Renovation Centre (NSBRC) is the UK’s only permanent visitor centre dedicated to helping self-builders, custom-builders and home-renovators through their ongoing projects. Located in Swindon, just off of Junction 16 of the M4, the centre covers 67,000 ft² and offers the following services:

  • The NSBRC Trade Village which is home to over 250 permanent exhibitor stands which showcase a wide range of products and services. Visitor information scan points are situated on each of the stands so that visitors can request further information from exhibitors using our digital barcode scanning system.
  • A New Build area which is made up of six educational zones. Each zone explains the various stages involved in new build construction through detailed life-size cross-sectional exhibits, taking visitors from plant and site set-up all the way through to finishes, making this a unique and inspiring resource for self-builders.
  • Modern and diverse conferencing rooms available for hire which accommodate 1-240 delegates in various layouts. Our conferencing rooms offer the latest I.T and AV equipment. You can find out more about our conferencing and venue hire here: nsbrc.co.uk/conferencing
  • Our NSBRC Self Build Educational Walking Tour and Renovation House tours. Visitors can take a walk through our new build educational zone and discover the major stages of a self build project to learn everything they need to know about building their own home including: Groundworks, Foundations & Floors, Walls & Structures, External Options, Roofing and much, much more.
  • Land finding and Financial planning with Build Store. PlotSearch, the UK’s premier land and property resource are on hand to help Visitors find their ideal plot, renovation or location.

Our calendar is brimming with a range of events that can benefit our visitors whatever the current stage of their project. Our main shows (The National Self Build & Renovation Show), are held three times a year in January, May and October and truly bring the Centre to life. These events have remained popular with our visitors over the years, offering exhibitors a great opportunity to engage with new customers and also provide the opportunity to network with industry professionals. With our lively Trade Village the Centre is the perfect setting to launch new products or services incentives!

We also host a variety of host workshops including our Eco-workshops which covers environment based issues. Other events include:

  • NSBRC Courses relating to self-build, project management, renovation and heating your home are hosted by experienced experts within the industry

  • Ask an Architect sessions
  • Design and Build workshops

NSBRC offers a unique setting to place your business, many of our exhibiting partners have been with us for several years, due to the highly qualified nature of the enquiries we generate.

Since our opening in 2007, we have welcomed over 160,000 self-builders, developers, renovators and home improvers, with around two thirds of our visitors having a current project. In 2017 alone, we welcomed over 17,500 self-builders into the Centre, generating over 87,600 leads for our exhibitors.
