SECC, Glasgow hosts unique construction event
Maccaferri Ltd. exhibited at Scotland Build Expo at SECC, Glasgow on 25-26 Nov.
This Expo, which is part of a series of Global Construction Events taking place in USA, UK, Australia & New Zealand, is the only event to focus exclusively on construction projects & opportunities across Scotland.
The timing of this event couldn’t be better considering that the Scottish construction industry is growing at its strongest rate in over 5 years with housing construction on the rise across Scotland in addition to many private initiatives. Currently, the Scottish government is building nearly 5 times as many council houses as the rest of the UK.
This two day event was the perfect opportunity for Maccaferri to showcase their products to a wide audience consisting of architects, planners, civils, developers, designers, civil engineers, consultants & construction companies.
The 3 x 3m stand was bedecked with a splendid MacWall® hand-built by our own Allan Rice which created a talking point along with our small scale gabion baskets full of sweeties.
Manned during the two days with Allan Rice, Aaron Laing and Michelle Thompson, the stand was well attended and giving Aaron & Allan the opportunity to attend the VIP conference sessions and listen to influential speakers from the Scottish Government, Keir Construction, Construction Scotland Innovation Centre (CSIC), Scottish Water and the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) to name but a few and it was a very tired Allan who re-loaded all 18 MacWall blocks back onto the pallet for transporting.
Heartfelt thanks to everyone who took the time to come and chat with us on the stand.
Maccaferri Ltd have booked a stand at its sister exhibition – North England Build 2016 which takes place in Manchester, UK April 27- 28 2016 – please look out for us there.
