BMF builds presence at UK Construction Week 2018

The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) is building on its successful first two years at UK Construction Week in 2016 and 2017, by hosting its own branded BMF Pavilion again at this year’s exhibition, with an increased floor area and hub for visitors. The show takes place at the NEC in Birmingham from 9-11 October.

The BMF Pavilion will be located in the Build Show area of UK Construction Week, which features nine separate shows in total, including Grand Designs Live. Exhibition space within the BMF Pavilion is available at special rates for BMF members.


John Newcomb, BMF Chief Executive said: “For the last two years the BMF Pavilion has proved an excellent platform for merchants to meet and do business with potential customers and suppliers. In 2017 UK Construction Week attracted 33,697 construction professionals (a rise of 11% on 2016), demonstrating the industry’s appetite for a major annual event that combines exhibitor space with education seminars, workshops and relaxed networking opportunities.”


BMF member, EasyTrim, had great success launching a new product at the show, as Rachel Gibson, the company’s Marketing Manager said: “We decided to launch our product at the Build Show because the show attracts such a broad demographic of visitors. We had a fantastic week at our stand and garnered a lot of high-quality leads.”


Members exhibiting in the BMF Pavilion last year included EasyTrim, Rawlplug, ClicBox, Glen Castings, Sales-i, Werner, Wykamol and Intact Software.


This year, with BMF members benefitting from a substantial 20% discount, the Federation is confident that the number will be even higher. Intact have already booked their BMF Pavilion stand  and other BMF members at the 2018 show include ClicBox, Easy-Trim, Marsh Industries, Aggregate Industries, Danosa, Fibo, Ibstock (Forterra), Soudal, Velux, Marley Plumbing & Drainage, Rockwool, Kingspan Environmental (Klargester), Quinn Building Products (who took a 9m2 in 2016 and have now booked 85m2!
