6156 attendees break attendance record at UKCS2014!
UKCS2014 was pronounced an outstanding success by Show Director, Steven Callaghan after the best ever attendance at a UK CONCRETE Show since the launch in 2011.
"Walking through the entrance boulevard flanked by a display of plant and equipment from big industry names starts to create a real sense of anticipation of what to expect when you reach the show area and you are not disappointed!"
Some 206 exhibitors occupied an area of just under 20,000m2, almost 100 of whom were first timers are putting on a terrific show, supported by 6 live demo bays and 30 specialist seminar sessions.
"Considering that the first show in 2011 occupied just 4,000m2, the show has grown by almost a factor of 5 in 4 years, the bulk of this in recession, which says a great deal about the strength and resilience of the concrete industry' added Callaghan.

Business was being done at the 2014 showcase
The value of orders placed during the show plus invitations to tender suggest that proof that the economy really is starting to move, according to Sales Director, Paul Shelley.
"More than £500,000 of firm orders were place on day 1 of the show and from conversations with exhibitors, we estimate that once the firm enquiries received by exhibitors are developed over the coming months, the value of business generated at the show will approach £50 Million."
