The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) is building on its first appearance at UK Construction Week last autumn by once again hosting its own branded BMF Pavilion at this year’s exhibition, which takes place at the NEC in Birmingham from 10 to 12 October.

The BMF Pavilion will be located in the Build Show area of UK Construction Week, which features nine separate shows in total, including Grand Designs Live. Exhibition space within the BMF Pavilion will be reserved for BMF members.

John Newcomb, managing director of the BMF, said: “Last year, the BMF Pavilion proved an excellent platform for merchants to meet and do business with potential customers and suppliers. UK Construction Week attracted over 30,000 construction professionals, demonstrating the industry’s appetite for a major annual event that combines exhibitor space with education seminars, workshops and relaxed networking opportunities.”

Around 20 BMF members had a presence within the BMF Pavilion in 2016. This year, with BMF members benefiting from a substantial 20% discount, the Federation is confident that the number will be even higher.
