Organisers of Offsite Expo have reported that the first day of the event exceeded expectations. After the leading offsite construction exhibition had to be called off in 2020 due to Covid restrictions, the team behind the event were determined to make every effort to ensure 2021 was a tremendous success.
Taking place at the Coventry Building Society Arena (Ricoh Arena) on 21 & 22 September 2021 – managing one of the first major construction events since lockdown does not come without risk and it was with some relief that Business Development Director Julie Williams said:
“I am delighted to report that more than 4,000 delegates prebooked tickets to attend and over 100 of the sector’s most influential innovators have been sharing their expertise in the CPD Accredited Masterclass sessions. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the exhibitors for putting their faith in us. The hall is full and packed with feature builds with everything from a transporter hauling a module and a new innovative ‘room in the roof’ system together with a double height and single storey light steel frame exhibition stands and even a couple of two-storey apartments.
“After the challenges of the last year or so we wanted an event to celebrate the coming together of the offsite industry and one that will be remembered for years to come, for not only the highly informative content but importantly, the first time we could all get together for face-to-face business meetings.”
The Offsite Connect business forum offers a structured, highly effective way for buyers and specifiers to meet with new and existing offsite industry suppliers exhibiting at Offsite Expo. The last forum was a major success and this year the uptake was said to be exceptional. With over 80 buyers taking part including high-profile housing developers such as Barratt and Persimmon, as well as main contractors Kier and Morgan Sindall. In Covid-safe surroundings over 330 business meetings are planned – many of which have taken place.
Day one of Offsite Expo will culminate in the Offsite Awards, co-located at the event. As the finalists nervously await the outcome 400 places have been booked to attend this hotly contested awards event. Details of the winners will be announced tomorrow.
