Strong focus on floor prep at UK’s Concrete Show 2018Published 22/2 at 13:04
The UK Concrete Show will be held for the 8th time at the Birmingham National Exhibition Centre (NEC), 21 and 22 March 2018.
According to the organisers, Concrete Times Magazine, the UK Concrete Show, UKCS, is the only UK event that is totally dedicated to the concrete industry, and is Europe’s number one specialist trade show to be held in 2018.
Interest in terms of floor prep and polishing
The 2017 exhibition continued the UKCS success story with more visitors, more new and returning exhibitors, and year on year, more business done. UKCS 2018 will build on this success, and will repeat the exciting new features that were so well received at UKCS 2017. These include a live BIM for a concrete interactive visitor experience, a technical advice clinic and live demonstrations.
For PDi Magazine, the overall focus of the show is perhaps not of general interest, but UKCS features a special focus on diamond tools, concrete floor grinding and polishing equipment. A large number of the magazine’s advertisers are manufacturers of this kind of equipment, and will be exhibiting at this year’s event. Given this interest, PDi will have a bonus circulation issue with the show being covered editorially.
This year’s event will see UKCS moving slightly in the calendar in order that the show will no longer clash with school half term holidays. The organisers also hope the show will benefit from better weather conditions.
The UK Concrete Show has also moved halls - 17 and 18 at the NEC – in order to accommodate increased numbers of exhibitors and visitors. Car parking will also be more conveniently located a short walk away. In addition to the exhibitions in the halls, there will also be a limited outdoor demonstration area, perfect for companies to show their equipment working.
