    Well that's what it seemed like today at the Heating and Renewables Roadshow in Coventry.

    If the next few are the same, they'll have no exhibitors at all next year.

    a) numbers of exhibitors down by about 50%
    b) visitors down by 80% .

    All the boiler manufacturers were trying to show off ashp's or bivalent ashp's 90% of the people they talked do din;t understand what they were talking about..

    Expect a large number of withdrawals from the heat pump market place next year

    The big players (in terms of numbers) will still be about
    Panasonic
    Samsung
    MELEC
    Daikin
    (these can also survive with the Aircon side)
    Some of the other large players / household names are also questioning whether the effort is worth it.

    I'm going to our regions show on Tuesday, hopefully with a better outcome to yours! :alucard:

    I've just got back from Scandanavia looking at heat pumps so I was feeling quite upbeat about it all until I read this..
