Materials 2017 registrations soaring with high purchasing power

Delegate list abundant with architects, project managers, contractors, and many more…

With less than two months remaining until Materials 2017 opens its doors, registrations of high calibre delegates from national and international architecture practices, housebuilders, and developers continue to climb.

The event, developed to be the one-stop event catering to all construction materials needs for specifiers, manufacturers and suppliers, has received resounding interest from across the industry.

Nearly half of all registered delegates have indicated that they have joint or sole responsibility for purchasing with an additional 31.5% having influence over such decisions. 60% of delegates have an annual purchasing spend above £100,000 with 49.9% of these being over £1 million. Nearly a quarter of registered visitors have indicated that finding new suppliers is a top priority for their attendance of Materials 2017 with another 29.4% and 20.7% stating that they’re interested in innovation and new technologies and networking.

With such high percentages of delegates with purchasing responsibility and budget actively seeking to make connections with new manufacturers and suppliers, a wealth of potential business opportunities are offered that generate high potential for exhibitors’ products to be specified in up-and-coming projects, driving sales, and increasing brand awareness.

A number of exhibitor packages are still available, from stands and pods to one-to-one meetings with VIP Visitors utilising the Meet the Buyers Forum. Manufacturers and suppliers interested in harnessing all that Materials 2017 has to offer are encouraged to sign up soon with more and more slots being taken by the ever-growing exhibitor list.

Materials 2017 is focused entirely on the cutting-edge of material solutions for architecture, construction, and design. Held at the ILEC Conference Centre, London on the 25 and 26 April 2017, a wide range of products – from ceramics, stone, brick, and timber to glass, concrete, metal, and smart materials – will be featured, looking not only at their use in creating striking aesthetic designs but also at alternative functionalities beyond their common purposes within building structures, envelope, façades and finishes. Materials 2017 is completely free to attend for delegates and competitive prices are available for sponsor and exhibitor packages.
