Media 10’s UK Construction Week (UKCW) Birmingham returned to the NEC last week with a record visitor attendance, up 19% from last year.
The UK’s largest event for the built environment drew more than 23,900 visitors from as far afield as Turkey, Brazil, Australia and Canada.
UKCW Birmingham featured speakers including West Midlands Mayor Andy Street, Channel 4 presenter George Clarke and BBC journalist and presenter Simon Jack.
The show celebrated culture change in construction with three days of debate and discussion from speakers across seven stages, with issues covered including Net Zero, sustainability, offsite manufacturing, mental health, and improving diversity and inclusion.
UKCW event director Nathan Garnett said: “There is so much happening in the construction industry right now that has put UK Construction Week into a unique position, whereby it can inform and educate the sector as it moves forward. There is a real sense of momentum now as we plan the next one, especially on meeting our next zero targets and creating long lasting culture change. A record number of companies have signed up for 2023 so we look forward to really growing the UKs largest trade show for construction.”
Dates for next year’s two shows have already been announced. UKCW London will take place from 2-4 May at ExCeL, followed by UKCW Birmingham from 3-5 October at the NEC.
