Finally a major contractor focused exhibition and at the right time of year too!

Another new building industry exhibition is set to hit the UK next year, but this one has been needed for sometime and it will also relate to long lost lovers of Interbuild, who will be delighted to see a major building industry trade exhibition taking place in the late autumn/early winter period again. 

The Build Show, the first comprehensive builder and contractor focused exhibition and forum to take place for a decade will provide an opportunity for the building, construction and related industries to network, to join together to share ideas, learn new information, skills and working practices, to trade and to grow together.

The Build Show will showcase every aspect of the building and construction industry and a wide ranging programme will explore every key issue and work with key industry leaders and organisations to address policy issues, develop skills and personal development, seek out, recognise and reward talent and ability. The event will take place on 27th, 28th and 29th October 2015 at the NEC, Birmingham.

Paul Godwin, Managing Director of Build Show said: "Autumn is a far better time for a contractor-focused event,” explained Godwin. “With increasing order books, SME builders and contractors especially might be hard pressed to take time off site in the spring." 

He added: “We recently conducted a significant piece of research amongst construction professionals and it was skills shortages, more than a lack of materials that was highlighted as the biggest obstacle in the way of industry growth. A key part of our seminars and content programme at the Build Show will be focussing on skills, learning and development."

The exhibition seems to be planning to address something appropriate to the needs of the industry and will give exhibitors a better chance of addressing and meeting users of their products and services in what is first major business-to-business event for builders and contractors for a number of years.

Build Show will bring together contractors, specifiers, builders, suppliers, house builders, architectural technologists and clients, all under one roof and will be an event designed for an industry that is crucial to the success of the UK as it sheds the shackles of recession. 

Are exhibitions still worth it? Read our feature.

More than 400 exhibitors occupying 35,000 feet sq.of space will be joined by an estimated 25,000 building and construction industry contractors and professionals who may choose from a mix of seminars, demonstrations, debates and discussions to make the Build Show a powerful and stimulating event at all levels.

Lets hope it is a success and along with Ecobuild will provide the UK with two excellent large and valuable exhibitions to serve the needs of the industry in the 21st century.
