In a first for the merchant industry, the Builders Merchants Federation will have its own branded BMF Pavilion at UK Construction Week 2016.
The BMF pavilion, sited across the Build Show and HVAC 2016, provides a platform for merchants to meet and do business across the three trade days, featuring nine shows in total including consumer show Grand Designs Live. Exhibition space within the BMF Pavilion will be reserved for BMF members.

John Newcomb, Managing Director at Builders Merchants Federation, said: “This is an exciting opportunity to bring merchants and suppliers together to find out more about the latest products and new technology and building techniques coming on stream. When I joined the industry I was surprised that it had not had a major exhibition to showcase the latest trends for a number of years. Now UK Construction Week has filled that gap. By working with a broad range of industry associations, like the BMF, the organisers are making the event relevant to as many people as possible, giving them multiple reasons to attend.”
Nathan Garnett, Event Director at UK Construction Week, said: “We are delighted to be working with the BMF. The first edition of UK Construction Week in 2015 attracted 500 merchants. With the help of the BMF we believe we can multiply this number greatly. We are committed to making UK Construction Week the largest collection of innovative exhibitors, products, new buildings, materials and techniques. Working with industry experts, associations and thought leaders, including the BMF, is a crucial element of that intent.”
The BMF has contracted its former Marketing Manager, Christine Harding, to manage exhibition space within the BMF Pavilion. BMF members taking exhibition space within the BMF Pavilion will benefit from a substantial 25% discount.
