The Build Show, sponsored by Easy-Trim, is set to return to Birmingham NEC in just under six weeks. From 10-12 October, 400 exhibitors will showcase its latest products, services and working practices in construction to an anticipated 35,000 visitors.
Running as part of UK Construction Week, every type of product is represented, such as windows, doors, decking, insulation, modular housing, tools, roofing and even drones.
Nathan Garnett, Event Director at Media 10 who runs the show said: “This year’s show is set to be our most significant yet. Visitors will find the latest products and services on display from a range of exhibitors set to transform and change the future of the sector, while our programme will bring together the best of the industry to debate, inform and educate visitors on the construction agenda. Not only that, but we’ll also be hosting unmissable opportunities for networking and socialising.”
