Record attendance at UK Construction Week

Record attendance at UK Construction Week

November 2017

October’s UK Construction Week has been hailed as the most successful in its three year history, with a record 33,697 construction professionals attending over three days.  This represents an 11% increase year-on-year.

Nathan Garnett, Event Director for UK Construction Week, Says: “This was a big year for UK Construction Week.  It was only our third year, but to get an 11% uplift in attendees is a real stamp of approval that we are delivering the kind of innovative, forward thinking, national event that brings the whole sector together.  It has proven itself as the place to meet and do business, and look at how we tackle the enormous challenges to come in the years ahead.”

“Regulations are changing all the time, and a lot of the guys here have solutions we need to know about so, this is a one stop opportunity to meet all of those people,” states Russell Shellard, Managing Director of Bramdean Construction.

James Fairclough, Head of Marketing for CEMEX, said: “We have had another great year at UKCW talking to many new and existing customers.  We felt it was a perfect event to launch our new ‘neogem’ aggregates range which received a massive amount of interest. We have already booked for 2018 and are looking forward to yet another successful event next year!”

The number of companies stating their commitment to UKCW in the week after has quadrupled year-on-year.  Plans are already well underway for the 2018 event with a large amount of space already committed to by exhibitors including Rockwool, CAT, Velux, G2 Energy, Steico, Fundermax, and Lumineux.  A number of new features and events are planned for next year for what promises to be even bigger and better event.  UK Construction Week 2018 will take place from 9th to 11th October
