PRECAST2015 Showcases the Best to the Precast Concrete Industry
The UKs biggest precast concrete event took place yesterday on 21 May 2015 at Leicester Tigers Stadium.
Sponsored by Tekla, PRECAST2015 was a great success with over 60 exhibitors showcasing the latest products and services in the industry from the UK and further abroad and more than 400 delegates in attendance.
The exhibition was a packed affair with seminars, live demonstrations, and networking sessions taking place throughout the day. Delegates were able to attend briefings on key topics including Building Information Modelling (BIM), ISO4001, technical, health and safety, resilience of the built environment, and economic outlook which were presented by expert speakers. As part of our recent initiatives with members to improve loading safety, Wincanton and Norbert Dentressangle gave essential and informative live demonstrations with vehicles outside the stadium.
Speed networking sessions with manufacturers were immensely popular, giving a valuable opportunity for suppliers in the industry to connect with potential new customers. The British Precast AGM also took place during PRECAST2015 and those Associate and Full Members who had been shortlisted for the prestigious Best Practice Awards were announced during the exhibition.
Andrew Minson, Executive Director of British Precast, said, “PRECAST2015 was a fantastic day and a great opportunity for the precast industry to receive briefings and discuss vital topics for the coming year, whilst also viewing the latest product launches and innovations from their supply chain. Plans for PRECAST2016 are already underway and we’re aiming to make it even bigger and better!”
