Build for the Future; East Midlands Exhibition 2021

Join us for the second Build for the Future; East Midlands Exhibition for 2021!

We are returning for our second event on Thursday 16th September 2021, hosted by Heritage Lincolnshire and Archaeological Project Services, sponsored by Arion & Arion Shop UK and working in partnership with the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce following the successful event in February 2020. We had over 40 exhibitors from across the industry, and hundreds of delegates on the day.

We have already had a huge response to the 2021's event with exhibitor bookings already coming through!

This annual event is directly marketed and aimed at those within the Construction, Property, Heritage, Sustainability and Trade Industries across the East Midlands.

The main aim is to connect businesses together within these industries, to ensure that they are accessible to businesses of all sizes and capacity.

Prices are below the average price to exhibit at an event such as this and we are hoping to draw in attendees from across the East Midlands area by working with some key partners and influencers in the industry.

Why should you take part?

Why are we holding this Exhibition?

With the current economic climate affecting the Construction industry and the uncertainty of Brexit and now post-Covid, we wanted to bring businesses together in the East Midlands area to facilitate collaborative working, using local services and like-minded business people. Being a small county-wide charity, we have some great assets and a strong, highly qualified and dedicated team. However this doesn’t always reflect in our marketing of the company due to budget constraints. It does not mean that we are unable to do the job, or less skilled, purely that we cannot shout about what we do as loudly as others. How many other businesses are in the same position? We want to put as many businesses as possible on a level playing field, to showcase what their qualities and services are, and how we can all work together.
