This year at the Surface & Materials Show, visitors will see a new Kitchens & Bathrooms Zone, and be given the opportunity to engage with emerging design talent, as well as industry leaders.
Representing a dynamic sector of the construction industry by championing materials, surfacing solutions and finishes, the Surface & Materials Show boasts a new layout for 2017.
A range of seminars, stands and events will be offered in 1,600 metres of space, offering opportunities to enhance knowledge, discover new products, and network with key industry personnel. The show will take place as part of UK Construction Week, at Birmingham’s NEC in October.
‘Having listened closely to feedback from last year’s event, we have a new position and layout for the show,’ comments UK Construction Week’s Event Director, Nathan Garnett.
‘Close to the connection with the Grand Designs event, the show now incorporates a dedicated kitchen and bathroom section, and centres the more decorative finishes around the innovation hub and seminar theatre.’
This year, the show will centre around Material Lab’s innovation hub, a showcase of intriguing surface innovations from a range of manufacturers. Attendees can also visit Oddhouse, a pod home concept from Estonia. The cabin, which is manufactured from a combination of timber and privacy glass, offers a standardised accommodation solution, boasting a flexible construction process.
At the seminar theatre, visitors can attend a series of informative talks, debates and CPDs from event partners such as BRE, Dulux and the Design Concrete Centre. Speakers will cover issues surrounding sustainability, wellbeing, future material and design trends, and current technologies, as well as offering ways of reducing waste to the circular economy.
Meanwhile, Master Fitters have been enlisted to give presentations on contract flooring at the show’s dedicated Flooring Workshop (FITA).
Visitors will be able to explore a wealth of stands, with exhibitors including Fibo, the Aluminium Federation, Dural UK, the Decorative Panels Group and Minercell.
