The first annual BMBI Round Table Debate was held at its offices in Coventry, discussing topical issues and the potential implications for merchants and the wider construction industry. A variety of topics were debated, including Brexit, Capacity, Housing, the Role of the Merchant, and Changing Customer Requirements.
