The professionals sustainable building & refurbishment event

2013 was another great event and brought 1000s of professionals from all over the UK together with a common goal, namely to find new solutions, share experiences and gain inspiration to provide better buildings.  We even had a visit from Greg Barker as our Green Deal debate area was swamped with visitors trying to find out what this new initiative has to offer and the feedback from our visitors this year was hugely encouraging for the industry, despite the challenges in the construction sector. Whether refurbishing through social housing schemes or looking at better ways to run existing non-domestic buildings from offices and hotels to schools, hospitals and retail or building better buildings to work, live and play in, Greenbuild Expo provides the built environment professional with a blend of technical seminars, case studies and innovation. Now evenly balanced with a split of 52% domestic and 48% non-domestic visitors and a private and public sector split of 60:40, Greenbuild Expo has evolved and for 2014 we’ll be providing even more for the built environment professional covering energy saving and carbon reducing measures through to fabric first, legislation and our wider sustainable cities theme, which includes smart buildings, storage, controls and much more. Key areas for 2014 include volume housing, office, health, education, leisure, hotel and retail.

Focus for 2014 include:

  • Green Deal/ Eco zone
  • Commercial building owners and CRC
  • Training
  • Materials & Methods/ Fabric First
  • Renewables
  • Water Saving
  • Sustainable Cities
  • Smart Buildings
  • Quality

    Once again we were able to bring quality visitors to the event. The feedback has been terrific: visitors have commented on the quality of the seminar programme and the competence of the exhibitor personnel who were able to give knowledgeable and practical advice for their projects.  Getting the balance right is key to visitors enjoyment and with a blend of technical seminars, case studies and innovation visitors have commented on the event giving a well rounded perspective of technologies and solutions the market offers. Exhibitors have benefited too with business done and appointments made during the event.

    Partners

    Our professional partnerships are growing again with a variety of organisations wishing to be involved with Greenbuild next year.  Once again UK Green Building Council, Association of Greater Manchester Authorities, DECC, RICS, RTPI, BRE and CIAT, are all involved and adding their expertise to the event.

    Looking forward to 2014

    Greenbuild Expo will again focus on professionals working in the volume housing and non-domestic building sectors, rather than self build and consumer. We will build on our success with sectors including hotel and leisure, offices and larger companies covering energy saving methods, CRC, behavioural change and much more.  And new for 2014 is our Smart Buildings series, the Renewables area in response to the long awaited RHI.

    The renewables market in 2014 is set to receive a boost from the domestic RHI finally being launched in Spring this year and has seen a recovery since the funding cuts on PV with new technologies, more efficient products and integrated solutions, particularly on commercial properties. All of this is great news for the heatpump, biomass, solar thermal and PV markets.

    Greenbuild Expo is recognised as the largest sustainable building and refurbishment event in the North of the UK. We not only hope to encourage a larger audience but also bring more high profile industry speakers and more industry-leading exhibitors to the 2014 event.  Championing sustainable refurbishment and building solutions is what Greenbuild is about whether that’s in the volume domestic market or wider construction sectors including hotel and leisure, retail and offices. 2014’s event will look at all of these sectors with zoned areas for Retrofit, Training, Commercial buildings and for Materials and methods, an area visitors told us they needed more information about.

    Promotion for 2014

    An extensive advertising and PR campaign has begun and this will be supported by direct mail, tele-marketing, email and web advertising for the 2014 event.

    Our sister website www.greenbuildnews.co.uk  enables us to continually promote the event, update our subscribers on new elements of the show or speakers signed up as well as keep them abreast of sustainable building issues. This together with Greenbuild Magazine provides ongoing dialogue with previous visitors to the event allows us a unique insight into what is popular with sustainable building professionals, what concerns they have what areas need clarification and of course the ones that are most popular.  This provides the basis of the seminar programme for Greenbuild Expo and ensures we are addressing the concerns of the visitors to the site and show.
