MOBIE NETWORKING EVENT

MOBIE believes in doing. Actively participating leads us to the most innovative and sometimes most unexpected ideas and solutions.

We invite you to join us for a simple and creative challenge. The theme is HOME. We want you to take a simple square of paper and get hands-on and imaginative. By folding and creasing, let’s explore ideas that are beautiful, simple, tactile, tangible, real and imprecise. We feel this activity will naturally lead to active conversations about how we approach the challenges of home building, home design, home education and beyond.

Explore shapes, make spaces, make structures, make anything that YOU find interesting. Discuss what your creation could be in the real world and how could it be built. What is it about your folded idea that would make an amazing place for people to live. It’s going to need a little thought, invention and imagination! 

Date: 23rd October 

Time: 1:30pm-3:00pm

Location: Built Environment Networking Hub

In collaboration with: MOBIE

  • 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

  • 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.

    Technical and Specification Manager, Unitrunk
  • I would wholeheartedly recommend exhibiting at London Build.

We certainly made a lot of new contacts and would recommend London Build!
