Toolbox Talks

Stretching from the Borders to the Highlands and islands – and everywhere in between – our ever-popular technical roadshows will hit the road again in 2024.

The invaluable technical update sessions will tour 12 venues in May and June, with our experts on hand to discuss topical trends in the electrical industry.

The hot topics for discussion this year will be neutral current diversion and additions and alterations, with expert presentations by our team of Technical Advisers.

Members will have the chance to ask questions and discuss other matters face-to-face with our team, with other SELECT staff on hand to answer any other queries.

Each event will feature exhibitors from a range of leading manufacturers and service providers, including new SELECT Associate Members, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to see the latest technology first-hand.
