New BUILDEX dates announced

Same venue, but a new time of year for BUILDEX, Construction's principal trade show...

BUILDEX 2021 will return on Wednesday, September 15, and Thursday September 16.

It’s required more juggling than a clown at Billy Smart’s Circus, but we’ve succeeded in securing a new date for BUILDEX.

Originally scheduled for September, then moved to November because of the COVID-19 crisis, circumstances then necessitated a further shuffling of dates. With the Department of Health continuing to assess the Eikon Exhibition Centre as a Nightingale Hospital in the event of a second wave of the coronavirus, the only sensible option was to allow adequate time for life to (hopefully) return to some semblance of normality.

So, pencils at the ready (I know we’re all hi-tech these days and don’t write in a diary, but you know what we mean) – BUILDEX will now take place on WEDNESDAY/ THURSDAY, MARCH 10/11, 2021.

This festival of construction and networking, an integral part of a multi-industry BEPEX trade show encompassing electrical and plumbing, returns to the stunning Eikon Exhibition Centre. Northern Ireland’s largest events campus and home to the Balmoral Show will have returned to its primary purpose as the perfect place to cast your eye over world class exhibitors and brands.

On the flip side, with a captive audience of like-minded individuals all under one roof, it is also the ideal showcase for your brand and products.

BUILDEX provides the platform, attracting architects, contractors, developers, manufacturers, engineers, consultants, surveyors… in short, every component of the building trade.

Even better, the wider BEPEX concept and cavernous Eikon campus allows room to accommodate ELECTEX and PLUMBEX, plus three specialist zones: TOOLHUB (tools and equipment), SEMINAR HUB (illuminating trade and industry talks), and FIT-OUT HUB (that concentrates on commercial and workplace solutions). For anyone in the trade this is an opportunity to rub shoulders with some of the keenest minds in the industry, and keep across the latest trends, technologies and innovations.

BUILDEX 2021 might also be one of the first times that we will be able to come together as an industry, to commemorate the fact that we have weathered the storm and come out the other side, and to renew friendships. It promises to be an occasion, and event that you and your company will not want to miss.
