Industry heavyweights invest in Eco Build 2015

Reinforcing its position as the world’s leading event for sustainable design and construction, Ecobuild (www.ecobuild.co.uk) announces big brands investing in the 2015 event (March 3-5 2015, ExCeL London).

Travis Perkins, Kingspan Insulation, Scotscape, Mapei, ACO, Polypipe, David Ball Group and Velfac are amongst the industry giants now signed up, as well as fresh face Wavin.

“As the UK’s leading supplier of water management, plumbing, heating and drainage systems for the building, construction and utilities markets, it is important that we align ourselves with major events that address the topics affecting the industry,” commented Mike Shaw, Head of Marketing at Wavin.

“Ecobuild brings together the key decision makers across the industry to debate these topics, therefore offering the ideal opportunity for Wavin to showcase its products, services and sustainability messages.”

Citing ‘renewed confidence in the green construction sector combined with its strongest proposition ever’ for this flood of early investment, Alison Jackson, Group Director of Sustainability & Construction, Ecobuild said: “The cash injection from government initiatives like the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive and Green Deal provides fresh opportunities and a much needed boost for sustainable construction. With over 44,500 attendees representing the entire buying and influencing chain, Ecobuild is recognised by industry as the superior platform to showcase new innovations to the market.”

Darren McMahon, Marketing Director at Viessmann said: “Ecobuild is relevant for everything Viessmann has to offer – it provides a platform to present anything from innovations such as our fuel cell micro combined heat and power (mCHP) Vitovalor 300-P product, to futuristic power generation concepts, such as our power-to-gas initiative, while also encompassing heating installer focused developments like our Vitoflow hydraulic balancing kit for heating systems. This breadth of interests means it’s a dynamic and productive event to which we are looking forward to returning in 2015.”

Ecobuild 2014 saw a three percent rise in attendees this March, with 44,538 sustainable built environment professionals flocking to London’s ExCeL across the three days.

Jackson urges: “With sixty five percent of the 2015 floor plan now sold or reserved, we would encourage companies to get in touch now to secure a prominent position.”
