Seventeen videos from the Builders Merchant Building Index Round Table Debate are now available on their website, covering six main topics, with trailers for each one so viewers can get a flavour of the discussions.
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.
Mike Beard, Merchat Development Director Encon Insulation; Nigel Cox, Managing Director Timbet; Andy Williamson, Group Managing Director IKO PLC; and Steve Durdant-Hollamby, Managing Director Alumasc Water Management Solutions, are just some of those who took part. MRA Marketing CEO Mike Rigby and BMF Chairman Peter Hindle were also among the BMBI experts.
