CEF LIVE 2019 is opening its doors at the NEC for the third time and this year we will offer attendees two days of free educational content from industry experts and leading suppliers!

This year’s programme is the most comprehensive yet and will be packed with fresh ideas and insights along with brand new cutting edge technology.


We hope that you are as excited about the amazing WOW DEALS as we are. These offers are only available at CEF LIVE and are not to be missed - they won’t be repeated or be available from CEF stores so don’t miss out. Remember, all deals are strictly whilst stocks last - when they’re gone, they’re gone!

It couldn’t be easier to grab yourself one of these deals.. On the day simply head to the stand[s] you wish to buy from and you can complete your purchase there and then. You can pay via cash, card or account, and keep your purchases in our dedicated storage zone until you’re ready to go home. We’ll even throw in a giant CEF shopping bag – so there really is no reason not to fill it!
