Constructionline will hold its first virtual Meet the Buyer event next week with work up for grabs from a host of major contractors and clients.
The event will take place across two full-scale interactive virtual exhibition halls, crafted to emulate real-life event spaces.
Constructionline LIVE on November 19 will feature big names including Balfour Beatty, Wates, Kier and Seddon.
The two virtual exhibition halls are split by region: Northern England and Scotland in Hall A, and Wales, the Midlands and Southern England in Hall B, to enable suppliers to easily find buyers in their area.
Suppliers are able to book one-to-one time slots for video conferences with buyers, eliminating the need to wait in line to speak to them.
Time slots open up on the day of the event which is exclusively for Constructionline and Builder’s Profile members.
Simon Gibbs, CEO of Constructionline, said: “We are immensely excited to bring Constructionline LIVE to all of our members this year.
“During these challenging times, staying connected with the industry is vital, and we have sought to enable opportunities for this in the most exciting way.
“Covid-19 has changed the world, and we have had to adapt by putting all of our attention into the virtual world to deliver a world-class virtual event environment so that our suppliers may stay connected to our buyers and continue to gain work for their businesses.
“Thirty national exhibitors are confirmed so far, with more being added every week. We’ve taken our online event to the next level; the virtual exhibition halls have to be seen to be believed.
“Constructionline LIVE is set to be one of the biggest virtual networking construction events this year, and should not be missed.”
