More than 1,300 tickets have already been snapped up for NICEIC and ELECSA’s 18th Edition Live Cinema broadcast.
This world first for the electrical industry will see electricians come together for a one-off event, and with just under a month still to go, the numbers are expected to increase further.
“The initial response has been fantastic,” commented NICEIC and ELECSA’s marketing director Mark Smith.
“It is amazing to think so many electricians will be dotted around the country at one moment in time to learn about the upcoming changes.
“It promises to be a groundbreaking moment. We would we would encourage anyone who has not signed up yet to do so and play their part in this one -off event.”
On July 4, NICEIC and ELECSA will be transmitting a live talk on the 18th Edition which will be beamed via satellite to 40 cinema screens simultaneously. It is the first time such an event has ever taken place in the construction industry.
Tickets cost £5 and can be booked online at a cinema close to you now by visiting www.18edition.com/cinema.
The 18th Edition seminar will be broadcast from the Faraday Theatre, in The Royal Institution. Hosted by industry experts Darren Staniforth and Alan Wells, the talk will focus on the changes included in the new regulations and what it will mean for electricians in their day-to-day work.
“When the 17th Edition was launched in 2008, a lot of industry myths emerged because multiple messages were communicated by different speakers. The advantage of broadcasting to all four corners of the UK on a single day is that we can communicate a single, consistent message to the industry,” commented Darren Staniforth.
“We believe this will benefit the whole industry and increase safety standards as a result.”
There will be audience contributions from some of the biggest names in the industry, including representatives from JPEL 64 and its sub-committees, who are responsible for writing the new regulations.
The seminar will be broadcast live to over 40 screens across the UK with a full list of all participating cinemas now online.
Mark added, “We aim to reach as many people as possible and will have a live link-up with all the cinema screens. We plan to invite everyone in the industry to attend, as it will be of value to everyone from apprentices through to time-served electricians.”
NICEIC and ELECSA have partnered with Vue, Odeon, Showcase and Omniplex Cinemas to put on the 18th Edition event.
The live seminar and cinema event will take place from 9am on Wednesday, 4Th July.
