At a launch event in Central London, Ecobuild has unveiled exciting new plans to take it into the next phase of business growth and reinforce the brand’s position at the centre of the UK building industry for more than 11 years.
Part of UBM Built Environment, Ecobuild is the leading UK exhibition and conference event in the UK construction calendar, inspiring over 40,000 industry professionals from across the entire supply chain to interact with over 800 exhibitors.
Held at their stunning new headquarters at 240 Blackfriars, the event saw UBM Built Environment share their new vision for Ecobuild, which will build on the success of this year’s show but also evolve in line with market trends and the changing building industry.
Alison Jackson, Group Director for UBM EMEA Built Environment Exhibitions commented:
“Ecobuild will continue to be the most innovative and leading event on the construction calendar. This enduring brand has been updated and modernised for today’s market challenges whilst reflecting Ecobuild’s continued success in the construction industry.”
Following a survey of 2,500 exhibitors and visitors, as well as input from focus groups, Ecobuild 2016 will feature a new, improved show layout, increased capacity conference arena, and three learning hubs, covering industry trends and issues in Design, Zero Carbon and Energy. In addition, two unique inspirational features showcasing innovation and smart buildings will create a wow factor and allow visitors to touch, feel and learn about the future of the construction industry.
Alison Jackson added:
“UBM Built Environment has unrivalled access to data, senior construction leaders and speakers. We are very excited about revealing a mouth-watering speaker line-up and stunning new state-of-the-art features never seen to date in the UK.”
The company also presented Ecobuild’s distinctive new branding and logo which will be rolled out across all communications, including all marketing and advertising collateral, website and digital media platforms.
Launched at the Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane in 2004, Ecobuild covers everything from design, construction and performance and is firmly established as the event to meet with senior decision makers, discover the newest products and learn about the latest trends.
