With no dedicated trade show geared towards their needs, builders and contractors have been left out in the cold until now – as landmark new exhibition the Build Show bursts onto the industry calendar.
Brought to market by the organisers of the award winning FIT Show (Fabricator Installer Trade Show), the Build Show will take place at the Birmingham NEC from Tuesday 28th to Thursday 30th April 2015, bringing the industry together for a wealth of training, business development and networking opportunities.
With the Sun newspaper confirmed as national media partner and a £1.5 million marketing campaign designed to draw visitors from key target areas, the show represents a significant opportunity for exhibitors to communicate with specifiers and purchasing decision makers from the building and contracting sector of the construction industry.
Supported by a full programme of promotional opportunities culminating in a gala dinner at the event itself, exhibitors will have access to builders, contractors, housebuilders, merchants and construction professionals from around the UK and beyond.
A comprehensive seminar programme will offer information and guidance across all levels, including up-to-date details of the latest policy and legislation changes, health and safety, site regulations and continuing professional development.
The focus on skills, development and training will be central to the show, with numerous demonstrations, master classes and ‘ask the expert’ sessions taking place throughout the three days – as well as a variety of competitions and awards, including the Master Builder Golden Hammers.
Paul Godwin from the Build Show commented:
“By the time the Build Show takes place there will not have been an exhibition completely dedicated to builders and contractors for five years – meaning there has been very little opportunity for manufacturers to communicate directly with this sector in a face-to-face environment. The Build Show is stepping into this gap, providing the perfect platform for exhibitors to launch and showcase new products, as well as learn about future industry trends, evaluate competitors’ offerings and help penetrate into new and emerging markets.
“We are completely focused on providing a relevant, motivated audience for our exhibitors, so we are embarking on a sustained and high profile national marketing campaign to ensure we draw the right people to the show – which will ultimately generate high quality leads and drive sales.”
