Constructionline to host the industry’s biggest virtual ‘Meet the Buyer’ at Constructionline LIVE

Adapting to a rapidly changing world, Constructionline’s first ever virtual Meet the Buyer event will take place on 19th November 2020, 8.30am – 4pm, within one of the biggest virtual exhibitions of the year: Constructionline LIVE.

Exclusively for Constructionline and Builder’s Profile members, Constructionline LIVE builds on the extensive successful history of the leading industry networking event to connect buyers and suppliers throughout the UK.

Taking place across two full-scale interactive virtual exhibition halls, crafted to emulate real-life event spaces, Constructionline LIVE brings together exhibitors such as Balfour Beatty, Wates and Siemens Energy to name a few, and will deliver exclusive interviews, talks, product webinars, live help and information from both the Constructionline team and Buyers themselves. This is not just another video conference to lose your afternoon to.

Exhibitors will all have branded, interactive virtual booths. Attendees are free to explore with the rest of the exhibition in between their meetings, with opportunities for other video calls or quick answers from the Constructionline team over a handy web chat feature.

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.

“30 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.”

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. Crucially, 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.
