Self Build back up at full strength for fourth edition

Self Build and Design East proved to be a big draw at the Arena this month, with an estimated 1,500 visitors to the show over two days, March 5-6, 2022. Visitors were able to enjoy the many home exhibits on display including the amazing and clever new technological features that come onto the market every year.

Visitors to the show also got plenty of opportunities to listen to experts discussing every conceivable aspect of home improvement and building projects in the masterclasses and seminars on offer.

Nicole Hankins, senior event manager, East of England Arena & Events Centre, said “This was Self Build and Design East’s fourth edition at the arena, and the entire event went very smoothly thanks to the superb organiser team and the hard work of our venue team. The show has become a regular favourite and attracts a lot of regional interest, and it’s always an inspiring event, especially for people who come with their plans looking for ways to realise their homebuilding dreams.”
