This year, the Expo is also holding the South East Construction Awards and is open for entries, which will be celebrated at the Expo dinner.


Carole Black said, “We don’t have an awards scheme in the region to celebrate our heroes in this industry and so we have an exciting panel of judges and seeking entries for six categories, ranging from best construction project to best architectural design, best contractor to best supplier. We are also looking to celebrate women in the industry and want to reward the best apprentice on a construction project in the South East.”


Before the awards dinner,  the Expo will offer a full day of useful activities.  Not to be missed is the free Meet the Buyer appointments (over 600) with the top construction companies in the country.  Other attractions include great exhibitor packages, brilliant networking opportunities, high quality workshops, plus the latest news on projects and developments across the UK.
