Quality & Standards visit the Greenbuild Expo
The Greenbuild Expo is the UK’s newest sustainable building and refurbishment event.
This year the event was held at Manchester Central on 8th and 9th May and saw over 4,000 visitors across the two days. Our Quality & Standards Manager, Vicki Rose attended on the Wednesday with a primary aim of getting to understand the market a little better and meet the main runners within the industry.
Greenbuild is an informative event with a number of seminars and exhibitions throughout the two days. This exhibition and conference of sustainable building is for the construction industry covering training opportunities, renewable technologies, sustainable materials and legislation updates.
In association with UK Green Building Council, the Greenbuild Expo launched in 2009 and continues to grow year or year, attracting a range of industry sectors across the UK. This year saw a mix of public and private sectors, housing associations, architects, contractors, engineers and consultants alike.
Vicki commented “As we are looking to diversify, this was the best event to attend for us, with a chance to make new contacts, get a better understanding of the industry and discover trends within the markets etc. I have never visited an event with so many seminars before, it was such an informative event and all attendees were really passionate about the expo.”
She added “We have had a number of positive outcomes form the day; we met with some potential new clients and we will certainly attend next year to hear an update on the topics discussed during the day.”
