Meet the Buyers forum coming to Materials 2017

the ideal incubator for intensive business discussions, product sharing and procurement

Adding to the existing wide range of exhibition options, Materials 2017 will be host to a Meet the Buyers forum dedicated exclusively to discussing, negotiating – and ultimately – closing deals between material manufacturers/suppliers and key buyers and specifiers.

Desks are available to manufacturers and suppliers at highly modest and attainable prices and Buyers have the opportunity to apply to become VIP Visitors. Both sides of the table are available for one or both days.

As well as being a unique networking opportunity for back-to-back appointments in an environment fine-tuned for intensive business discussions, Materials 2017’s Meet the Buyers platform will allow key buyers to benefit from exclusive extras including complimentary overnight stay, breakfast, lunch, and dinner*.

VIP Visitors (key buyers and specifiers) will have the opportunity to pre-schedule meetings with suppliers using a leading online appointment making platform with the option to participate for one or both days. By carefully scheduling meetings and attending the conference and CPD seminars VIP Visitors at Materials 2017 will have unparalleled opportunities for learning, discussing their individual materials’ requirements, and peer-to-peer networking.

Materials 2017 is the new conference and exhibition coming to London in April. This highly focussed event will provide just the right climate for those involved in construction, refurbishments and renovations to find out more about the companies who are pushing the boundaries of possibility when it comes to material specification.

Incorporating conference and CPD talks, an exhibition hall, and the Meet the Buyers forum, among other networking and learning opportunities, Materials 2017 is a must-visit event for all industry professionals, enabling face-to-face engagement in social conversation, and expanded business relationships with top materials manufacturers.

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 designs but also at alternative functionalities beyond their common purposes within building structures, envelope, façades and finishes.

Held at the ILEC Centre, London on the 25 and 26 April 2017, Materials 2017 gathers leading construction professionals into one central venue, easily accessible via car or public transport. The event has been developed to be the one-stop show for all construction materials needs.
