Wetroom manufacturer Impey attended the Women Installers Together Conference recently, describing it as “modern, refreshing and a huge success”.
Organised by Stopcocks Women Plumbers, the event saw over 100 female installers gather to celebrate women in the plumbing and gas fitting industries.
With an estimated 1% of UK installers being female, the event has been conceived to encourage and motivate women in the industry, as well as to raise awareness of the career path and establish a firm and equal footing for these installers.
Throughout the day, delegates were able to listen to inspirational guest speakers, get involved in group discussions and share their experiences with fellow attendees.
In addition to scheduled talks, the attendees took the opportunity to network with fellow delegates and meet a selection of carefully chosen industry sponsors, including the team from Impey, who were on hand to advise on products and opportunities available within the wetroom sector.
Founder Hattie Hasan said: “We believe this really is the beginning of a massive change in attitude which will be great for the industry as a whole.”
Shaun Hunt, Impey’s technical manager, said: “We are incredibly pleased to have supported the 2018 Women Installers Together Conference. It’s our first time at the event and we were extremely impressed: it was modern, refreshing and a huge success.”
