The launch of UK Construction Week (6-11 October 2015) was announced by organiser Media 10 last year following its acquisition of the Build Show. The event will span five halls of the NEC and include nine shows specific to the UK construction industry, the most high profile being the top contemporary home show Grand Designs Live.
The recently announced HVAC 2015 will run for three days from October 6-8. It is being supported by the contractors group B&ES and is hoping to attract over 8,000 visitors.
Around 50,000 visitors in total are expected to attend the construction-dedicated week which, in addition to HVAC 2015, Grand Designs Live and the Build Show, also includes Timber Expo, Smart Buildings 2015, Surface and Materials Show, Energy 2015, Plant & Machinery Live and Kitchens & Bathroom Live.
In all, the organiser is planning a £1.5m marketing campaign to promote the event.
