UKCW Birmingham on track to be the busiest yet

  • 14 Sep 2022

With less than three weeks until the UK’s biggest ‘must-attend’ construction event (4 – 6 October), the eighth edition of UK Construction Week Birmingham is set to be the busiest to date.

Visitor registrations are already up 15% year-on-year. A variety of new networking opportunities are on show and eBay announced as its latest high-profile sponsor.

As well as hundreds of exhibitors and a packed programme of talks and debates, UKCW Birmingham will host a myriad of busy and engaging networking events.


These events will be hosted by the likes of Women in BIM, Find It Birmingham, Construction Excellence and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).

The show will act as a platform to share ideas, present new findings, celebrate and network with the industry. 

UKCW Birmingham has also announced multinational e-commerce giant, eBay, as the newest sponsor of the show’s sales lounge.

The lounge will start the conversation for builders and merchants to consider the platform for resale opportunities.   

‘Valued face to face time’

Nathan Garnett, UKCW Birmingham’s show director, says: “One of the main reasons this October will be one of the busiest shows we’ve ever done is because the whole industry is embracing and looking forward to that valued face to face time once more.

“Requests to host and attend networking events before, after and during the show have been in abundance so keep your eyes peeled for updates of these and if you’re coming to the show in October try and get along to as many as possible.”

This year, UKCW Birmingham is expecting around 25,000 attendees. It will be officially opened by Channel 4 presenter George Clarke and features guest speaker Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands.

Celebrating culture change in the construction industry with an exciting programme of debate and discussion from top speakers, the show will also shine a spotlight on over 6,000 products from more than 300 exciting exhibitors.
