In just over a month’s time, UK Construction Week is upon us. For our industry and allied trades, it is a chance to show off our latest wares, whether state-of-the-art power tools or the latest in MDF related products. Almost at the halfway point of next month is the 2017 Timber Expo. Over a three day period from 10 – 12 October at the Birmingham NEC, this year’s event will (more specifically) be a showcase for our industry.

There is free admission for the Timber Expo, but you need to register for any of the three days at the NEC. Your ticket also includes free admission to the Surface Materials Show. It is hailed on its website as a ‘must visit’ event for timber merchants, architects, and housebuilders. Whether you are designing a shelf or a semi-detached house, there are representatives from leading builders, timber merchants, architects, and retail partners. Also academic institutions and government departments.

If you click this link, there’s an impressive roll call of attendees from the 2016 event. There is still time to register between now and the event, but register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

These include exhibitions for: Smart Buildings; the Civils Expo; HVAC 2017; Plant and Machinery Live; Energy 2017; and, for the DIYers in mind, Grand Designs Live. The last named event, is a spin-off from Kevin McCloud’s popular home improvement show on Channel Four.
