Work Hard, Play Hard At UK Construction Week

Offering a complete business and networking package, UK Construction Week is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a casino night in partnership with Construction Enquirer and a beer festival to help visitors and exhibitors relax and unwind at the show.


Taking place on the first night of the show (6 October), the casino night will be held at the newly opened Genting International Casino at Resorts World Birmingham.  Just a five-minute walk from the doors of UK Construction Week and conveniently located to nearby hotels, the night offers a chance for visitors and exhibitors alike to relax with a few games of American Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat or Electronic Roulette.


Opening at 12pm on each of the trade days (6 – 8 October), the beer festival will provide a more relaxed atmosphere in which to grab some refreshments and a bite to eat, or simply catch up with friends, colleagues and clients.  With a wide range of traditional, local and rare craft ales on offer, plus a variety of entertainment and live music from across the UK, the beer festival will certainly be a welcome break at the end of a busy day.


There will also be a UK Construction Week Poker Tournament, with players competing to win the Prize Fund of £500 and help raise valuable funds for charity.  Entry is just £10 and will go directly to the winner’s charity of your choice.


Entry to the beer festival is free but early bird tickets are now on sale for £17.50, which includes three beers and a hot dog.  Corporate packages are also available at £175 for a reserved VIP table for 10 people, including three beers and a hot dog each.


Richard Morey, Group Events Director at Media 10, the events company behind UK Construction Week, commented: “We recognise that taking the time out to attend a trade show is a significant investment no matter the size of the company and so it has been our aim from the start to offer maximum return to our visitors and exhibitors. The after hours entertainment programme will provide a valuable extension of the event for professionals to relax and continue to network, particularly to those who have travelled a significant distance.


“UK Construction Week is a unique event in that it brings the whole spectrum of construction together and we feel that by offering a wide variety of extracurricular activities we can play our part in improving the sense of community, knowing that we are stronger together.”


In addition to bringing together 1,000 exhibitors from across the industry with more than 55,000 professionals in an active business environment, the extra-curricular activities make the even more worthwhile to attend.


Visitors to UK Construction Week will be able to attend the Build Show incorporating Civils Expo, the Surface and Materials Show, Energy 2015, HVAC 2015, Kitchens & Bathrooms Live, Plant & Machinery Live, Timber Expo, Smart Buildings 2015 and Grand Designs Live.
