Umbrella Show for UK Construction Industry

Whether it can be regarded as the new Interbuild or an entirely different event UK Construction Week has been promoted to cater for all needs.

 

Held on 6-11 October 2015 at the NEC in Birmingham, UK Construction Week is having the full PR treatment by claiming it will provide the most powerful opportunity available for suppliers and contractors to connect face-to-face, all under one roof.

More than 600 exhibitors will be joined by an estimated 55,000 plus building and construction industry contractors and professionals who may choose from a mix of seminars, demonstrations, debates and discussions that will be fronted by well known broadcasting celebrities like BBC’s John Humphries and Channel 4 News presenter Krishnan Guru-Murthy.

The show is being heavily promoted as nine shows in one and includes Smart Buildings, Energy, HVAC and Timber Expo. Whether it will succeed in drawing visitors in such numbers remains to be seen. From claims some months ago of over 1,000 exhibitors, the latest information appears to show 600 which given there are nine exhibitions under the umbrella brand, may not be as comprehensive as originally planned.

Opening times: Tuesday 6 October: 09:30-18.00, Wednesday 7 October: 09:30-18:00 Thursday 8 October: 09:30-17:00.
