BMBI Experts debate key issues and trends in construction in 3rd Round Table

  • 4 Dec 2018

The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) recently hosted the Builders Merchant Building Index’s (BMBI) third annual Round Table debate at its offices in Coventry.

The BMBI is a brand of the BMF and the debate was organised for BMBI Experts to discuss topical issues, and the implications for the industry.

BMF Chairman Peter Hindle, representing builders’ merchants, and Mike Rigby, CEO of MRA Marketing, who produce the BMBI reports, partook in the debate.

The debate covered six main topics:

  • The skills shortage
  • Changes in buyer behaviour and how we sell
  • Manufacturers adding value
  • Brexit
  • Grenfell – a year on
  • UK building & General economic confidence

The debate was videoed and a new video topic will be uploaded each week to the BMBI website, starting with ‘Dealing with the skills shortage’.
