Interbuild To Take Place Yearly
The organisers behind Interbuild have revealed that the event will now happen every year.
In response to exhibitor and visitor demand, show organisers, EMAP Construct, made the decision to switch to a yearly event on the back of the success of several other changes it has put it into place since its acquisition of Interbuild in 2004. The 2008 dates are already confirmed and an official announcement will be made at this years show.
"Following our return of the event to its traditional autumn dates, a restored focus on the professional builder and significant investment in marketing initiatives to support the show, we have seen a very encouraging response from the trade," said newly appointed Event Director, James Gower. "All of these actions have been popular with visitors and exhibitors alike and now, it seems, the industry wants more."
Show organisers are officially launching the UKs biggest building show as an annual event at the Interbuild 2007 Exhibitor Party on Monday 29 October. The announcement follows an extensive consultation period with Interbuilds customers and the wider trade and is supported by the results of an independent survey
"Product launches are becoming far more frequent with 96% of the construction product and service sector now promoting new products at least annually," said James Gower.
"A key driver in this trend is changing legislation and regulation, with the majority of participants stating that new product development is mainly or sometimes spurred by such change. As Interbuild provides a unique platform from which to launch new products it will benefit the trade to have the opportunity to showcase their latest developments on a yearly basis."
