What the UK's construction industry is saying about London Build..

  • It was our first time as an exhibitor and London Build Expo did not disappoint. It proved to be both exciting and productive. Looking forward to next year.

  • London Build is a busy and vibrant expo bringing together large to small players in architecture, interior design, building, construction and refurbishment. I would recommend it as both an exhibitor and as a visitor.
    Sarah Hodgkins
    Owner and Artist, Charlotte Designs
  • We attended as a visitor for the first time last year and were impressed enough to rebook for this year. The standard of visitors that came to the stand was really good and the variety of roles from MD’s to electricians was excellent and some meaningful conversations took place, we met people that we would not have been able to access during a normal working week. It was a well organised event, very easy for the exhibitor and a really good atmosphere throughout, I would recommend that anyone who visited with a view to taking stand space in 2019 should go for it.
    Tim Brown
    Technical and Specification Manager, Unitrunk
  • I would wholeheartedly recommend exhibiting at London Build.
    Adam Martin

  • A very well organised exhibition. From the initial booking of our stand, design, social media coverage and logistics; London Build 2018 was a breeze to organise and exhibit at. The layout of the floorplan was very clear and enabled exhibitors to find stands they were interested in and engage with exhibitors. We certainly made a lot of new contacts and would recommend London Build!
