NADC is excited to be part of the inaugural National Drainage Show which will take place at Excel on 9th and 10th November alongside Floodex UK and has committed to launching DrainSafe at the event. The overlap and synergies between the drainage and flood management sectors are such that the co-location of the two shows is a ‘no-brainer’! NADC will take the opportunity to showcase the benefits of belonging to the one association that covers all aspects of drainage contracting, and of course becoming part of the new approved contractor scheme that is DrainSafe.

The National Drainage Show also provides the perfect opportunity for NADC members to come together in one location, and NADC will be hosting a member’s event as part of the Show as an opportunity for members to meet and network with one another.

In addition, NADC will be offering SHEA Drains and Sewers courses on both days of the show, providing a unique opportunity for visitors to gain a qualification (and CSCS card) as well as visit the exhibition stands and meet fellow contractors.

Whilst there has been frustration about the delays to the launch of DrainSafe resulting from factors outside NADC’s control, the National Drainage Show provides the perfect opportunity to bring together all parties that will be positively impacted by the scheme which has been described as the biggest thing to happen in the drainage industry in living memory. Amongst those invited to the launch will be Government Ministers, water company executives, as well as representatives from local Government, construction companies, consumer organisations and a range of other important stakeholders. There will be a series of presentations about DrainSafe on both days of the Show providing an opportunity for visitors not only to learn more about the Scheme, but also engage in a Question and Answer session.
