Live, face to face events have come roaring back at the NEC, Birmingham, the home of The UK Concrete Show (UKCS), making it the place to be this coming May 5th and 6th, 2022, where the concrete industry will be welcomed to it’s annual, in person, face to face, live get-together, with this 10th anniversary edition being a total sell-out, according to the organisers Head of Sales and Show Director, Maddie Maclellan.
Close to 200 exhibitors occupying 10,000m2
“It’s Europe’s #1 standalone concrete event, so demand was bound to be high after a period when the show couldn’t run and both buyers and suppliers tell us that they have missed the experience of live events, with buyer, supplier and product together under one roof and with close to 200 exhibitors filling Hall 17 plus outside exhibits, the show is occupying over 10,000m2”.
Magnet for both domestic and overseas manufacturers
The show remains a magnet for both domestic and overseas manufacturers launching product into the UK market, says Maddie, and the 2022 show will have significant product launches scheduled to take advantage of UKCS’s unique audience including new brands of truck mixer, volumetric mixer and industrial floor technology.
Big names, Big Brands
Visitors will find world famous names like JCB, Putzmeister, Liebherr, CIFA, Mapei, Husqvarna and Somero on the show floor from amongst the close to 200 exhibitors jam-packed into Hall 17 at the NEC.
New Show Features and Innovations
“We’re 10 years old this show, but we still like to innovate” says Marketing & Media Director, Steven Callaghan, “so this year we are introducing Volumetric Avenue, The 5 Minute Pitch and The STREAM Hub. Volumetric Avenue will run South to North on the left side of the hall consisting of the largest selection of volumetric mixer trucks ever seen in a UK exhibition. The 5 Minute Pitch and the STREAM Hub will be new presentation methods guaranteed to avoid “Death by
Powerpoint”, and we have some excellent presentations planned including the ever-popular panel based discussions of topical industry subjects with presenters including CTOL’s Mark Cowan,” add Steven.
Travel restrictions removed
“It’s also great news that the Government has now removed all travel restrictions”, Maddie
concludes, “as UKCS is so much a global event, with companies from over 20 countries around the world exhibiting, plus considerable numbers of overseas visitors too, usually around 5% of our total attendance”.
