New Industry Event: The Cutting Edge of Material Solutions Revealed at Materials 2017

Materials 2017 Header

Materials 2017 is the new conference and exhibition focused entirely on the cutting-edge of material solutions for architecture, construction, and design. Offering a unique opportunity for architects, specifiers, and developers to meet face-to-face, engage in social conversation, and expand business relationships with top materials manufacturers, this event is a must-visit for all industry professionals.

Held at the ILEC Centre, London on the 25 and 26 April 2017, Materials 2017 is completely free to attend for delegates and competitive prices are available for sponsor and exhibitor packages.

Among the wide array of materials featured - including ceramics, stone, brick, timber, glass, concrete, metal, and smart materials - composites will also 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.

Seminar speakers from several of the industry’s biggest actors have been confirmed to include names from Aecom, Arup, Tata Steel, and Saint-Gobain. One conference and two seminar areas at Materials 2017 provide huge potential for knowledge-sharing in a highly tailored and intimate environment.

Strong support of the exhibition has been demonstrated by a variety of trade partners including the Alliance for Sustainable Building Materials, the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists, Composites UK and the Association for Environment Conscious Building.

Event Director David Schindler said; “Materials are developing so fast in terms of innovation, sustainability, and performance, it is vital that materials specifiers have the best possible and most up-to-date information to guide their design and construction techniques. This is the case both in terms of the educational content in the conferences and seminars at Materials 2017, but also engaging directly with the product manufacturers within the exhibition.”

Materials 2017 has been developed to be the one-stop show for all construction materials needs, for both specifiers and manufacturers or suppliers. Register free now at
