2017 Build Show Focus on Fire Safety

Build Show 2017 | Roofing and DIY NewsThis years’ Build Show, to be hosted at the Birmingham National Exhibition Centre (NEC) for the third consecutive year, will have a strong focus on fire safety, considering the recent tragic events in London.

The organisers of this years’ event have announced that there will be a series of one-hour workshops within the show, which attendees can learn about fire prevention, regulations and more from industry experts, free of charge.

Since its launch three years ago, the Build Show is gaining ground as one of the largest trade shows in the UK, showcasing the latest innovations and technology the construction industry has to offer.  In addition, the Build Show is advocating training opportunities, supporting the industry concerns over skills shortages, both now, and for the future.

Build Show expected to be the busiest yet

Media 10 Event Director, Nathan Garnett expects this show to be the busiest yet, and with a range of exhibitors taking advantage of the new planned layout and zones including Health & Safety, Roofing and Insulation, Windows and Doors, Tools and a BIM Prospects Theatre, there will be plenty to keep attendees busy for the three-day event.

Mr Garnett said, ‘The Build Show 2017 comes at a crucial time when there are many questions in people’s minds over building safety, quality and regulation. The Build Show can provide the industry with a much-needed space to network, develop and learn. We aim to bring people together from across construction so they can benefit from the new solutions and products on offer that will enhance their businesses. We can already tell that this will be our busiest show to date and we’re committed to making it the best platform for collaboration, innovation and education in the built environment.’

The Build Show will host open theatres, and will encourage industry debate and discussion, inviting industry leaders and experts to open topics at the forefront of construction. We expect this year that subjects at the top of the agenda will indeed be fire safety and prevention, but are keen to see some of the most innovative construction products showcased and discussed, particularly as sustainability has been a key subject in recent months.
