The new Offsite Show will be organised by Industry Expo, in partnership with Buildoffsite and will be co-located with UK Construction Week (UKCW), UK Construction Week Summits and Grand Designs Live
The Offsite Show will be the only UK event that brings together the client and supply chain for all aspects of the rapidly expanding offsite construction sector.
Whilst being an independent and vertical event, specifically for the offsite market, it will benefit from the added interest from the expected 38,000 visitors to UKCW; which will include not only others with an interest in offsite, but new potential contacts in all fields of construction.
The Offsite Show is for all sectors and will provide a business to business networking opportunity for those funders, clients, designers, constructors and suppliers who wish to improve the quality, performance in use, asset value and value of construction – both building and civil engineering.
This will be the biggest event, of its kind, in Europe, at a major venue in London, supported by key industry figures.
The underpinning theme of the event will be about the opportunities created from utilising offsite solutions, and provide a showcase for a new and ever-expanding market which is a vital component within the “Roadmap to Recovery”.
Physical events will become increasingly important
Paul Shelley, director of organiser, Industry Expo, said: “Both Eddie Milton and myself will be calling on all our experience and contacts, having launched and managed a similar event until 2018.
“We are very excited about the co-location, as it means it not only helps to deliver an event the industry needs but opens offsite up to a whole new audience, ensuring we are not just ‘singing to the choir.”
Joe Dyde, business manager at Buildoffsite, said “The last few months have highlighted that we live in an increasingly remote, digital age, so all physical events will become increasingly important in 2021 and beyond.
“There is simply no substitute for meeting people in person and networking with peers, suppliers and customers, and we hope the Offsite Show will provide us all with the earliest opportunity to do just that”.
Nathan Garnett, event director of UK Construction Week, said: “We are delighted to be working with Buildoffsite on this exciting launch alongside UK Construction Week London.
“Their aims and strategies align so well with ours and our partners on UKCW. It will be a real catalyst to drive demand as part of the recovery effort, and placing offsite construction at its heart.”
