South East Construction Expo 2018 comes to Sussex

Construction Expo South East 2018 will be held in Sussex for the first time on September 13 at the South of England Event Centre in Ardingly.

The trade show, founded ten years ago and previously held in Kent, will showcase the region’s largest range of construction products and services and is a ‘must visit’ for anyone whose business deals in development, property and construction.

Carole Black from South East Construction Expo said: “Sussex really is leading the way with its exciting construction projects in Brighton & Hove and across East and West Sussex, so it is great to be able to hold the South East Construction Expo 2018 here.

“The UK’s construction output stands at more than £110 billion per annum, accounts for ten per cent of employment and will continue to be a key driver in our prosperity over the coming years. We are committed to continuing to support this fast-moving industry with a leading conference and exhibition enabling sponsors, exhibitors and delegates to build lasting business relationships.”

New for 2018 will be the ‘Construction Village’, which will accommodate exhibits of any size both inside and out – offering the ultimate in flexibility for exhibitors and demonstrators. It will take this event to a totally new dimension and make it one of the most exciting construction events in the UK.

The event offers free Meet the Buyer appointments with the top construction companies in the country, great exhibitor packages, brilliant networking opportunities, high quality CPD approved workshops, plus the latest news on projects and developments across the UK.

An exciting list of speakers and panel discussions will cover every aspect of what is important to the industry right now, with Wayne Hemingway MBE from the Design Council, Kevin Byrne founder of Checkatrade and Anne Timpany from On Tap Plumbers speaking at the BIG networking breakfast and the entertaining Gyles Brandreth hosting the BIG construction dinner. Many more speakers and attractions are yet to be announced.
