UK Construction Week closed its doors two weeks ago on its most successful outing in its three year history, with a record 33,697 construction professionals attending over three packed days of business, networking, discussion and celebration. The increased attendance represents an 11% increase year on year, proving that a large scale construction event for the whole sector is needed for this vital part of the UK economy.
Take a look at what some of our comments we received throughout the three days at UK Construction Week.
“Materials, surfacing solutions and finishes are such a vital area of knowledge for me. As an architect , builder and developer, I need to keep up to date with advances in product design and manufacture, as they can make or break the final aesthetic and the long term performance of a project. I will be keeping a very close eye on The Surface & Materials Show at UKCW again this year, as over the last two years I have been delighted, surprised and motivated by what I have discovered there."
George Clarke, Architect & TV Presenter
"FIS made the decision to exhibit at UK Construction Week this year with the objectives to increase our profile and awareness within the construction sector, showcase our strategic focus areas and build sector support and engagement through creation of new networks and partnerships. We achieved all of those objectives especially with our #iBuiltThis2017 competition awards presented by George Clarke.

“CEMEX had another great year at UKCW talking to many new and existing customers about our innovative building material solutions. 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!”
James Fairclough, Head of Marketing, CEMEX
"Coming to Timber EXPO for the second time proved to be the right decision for the second time in row. Our current product portfolio as well as introducing new products brought a lot of attention to our stand and therefore we were able to not only gather contacts but also spread the knowledge of the products to broader public. Timber Expo is the right show to take if you are looking for certain returns on your marketing investment. Great thanks goes to all Media 10 team.”
David Menšík, Sales Director, Orlimex
"It was surprising the types of customers we met from self-builders to directors of large corporations, it gave us the opportunity to demonstrate our hybrid radiators to relevant people (best described as having 100s of meetings in one place). We have already rebooked for next year, the staff at Media-Ten made the experience from an exhibitors point of view ‘seamless".
"The show brought a high quality, broad spectrum of customers from all areas including London, home counties, North East, Midlands, Ireland, Middle East and even the Seychelles."
