Toolbox Talks

Stretching from the Borders to the Highlands and islands – and everywhere in between – our ever-popular technical roadshows will return in 2023.

The invaluable technical update sessions will again be touring 12 venues across Scotland in May and June, and our experts will be on hand to discuss topical trends in the electrical industry. 

Members will have the chance to ask questions and discuss other matters face-to-face with our Technical Advisers, 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.

Each event kicks off at 9.30am with coffee and morning rolls, with lunch provided at the end of each session. 

And because we appreciate that Members have busy schedules, all talks are concise and to the point, with sessions finished by 2pm. 

Goodie bags will also be handed out to each delegate, and COVID-19 health and safety measures will be in place at all times to help keep everyone safe.
