New Wiring Regs – Professional Electrical Installer Club Offers A Privileged Glimpse

On Friday the 5th of May 2017 electrical installers visit Rugby and the WAGO’s headquarters in Warwickshire to see product demos, and presentations and for networking.

This is the first meeting ever of WAGO’s Professional Installer Club and the meeting offer those attending the opportunity to see what’s up-coming in the 18th Edition wiring regulations that will be with us soon. A guest speaker from the NICEIC will be attending the meeting in Rugby.

For those attending the 4-hour event there will also be gifts and product samples useful tips and even a tour of the facility at WAGO to include the modular trunking assembly area.

As we await the 18th Edition of the IET Wiring Regulations (BS 7671) that will be with us in 2018 this event is well timed, and will provide guests with a useful insight into the changes that we can expect.

The aim of this important event is for installers to be supported as they enhance their professional skills, and to demonstrate to all those attending how the wiring that WAGO offers can save money effort and considerable time, whilst complying with the regulations.

The popularity in the WAGO event has, as might be expected, been keen and it is thought that over thirty companies will have representatives at the event.

Along with the chance to get hands on with WAGO’s latest products, guests are invited to test out the products and then give their feedback on the ideas and the prototypes that are not yet on sale in the marketplace.

WAGO’s Professional Installer Club has a 5,500 membership made up of contracting electricians, and this offering of privileged insights into cutting edge wiring technology from WAGO is very welcome.  There are also discounts on some of the product ranges as well as useful sessions for training on various products.

Those attending enjoy a buffet lunch, as well as voucher for £50 that they can spend online in the WAGO shop.  There is also a rucksack that contains some product samples.

Another popular aspect of the event is a guided tour of the WAGO site, which will give installers attending a chance to visit and observe the company’s production areas at first hand. The managing director of WAGO UK & Ireland, Tony Hoyle will be on hand to answer any attendee’s questions.

Paul Witherington, UK & Ireland marketing manager explained that Wago had restricted the numbers who could attend the event to 30, mainly because of the limitations of the WAGO UK site.

The amount of interest in this event however, means that WAGO are n the process of planning a much larger meeting to be held at the Ricoh Stadium in Coventry later this year.  We will let you now when that will be once we have the dates.

The idea is a good one. Professional Installer Club give their members direct contact with WAGO, letting them see first hand, any new products and to receive special discounts and offers and the chance to network with fellow professionals at similar events to be held across the country.
