London Build 2015 is the leading construction exhibition to focus exclusively on London and the South of England.
This two day exhibition, conference, workshop and networking event will take place at the O2 Arena on the 18th and 19th June. The exhibition will be showcasing the latest projects, developments, investment and opportunities in and around the Capital.
The suggested headline for this blog post is hilarious but totally unprintable, suggested by the very entertaining group technical editor of Building, Thomas Lane.
I’d love to use his brilliant witty headline, as the spirit in which it was delivered was reflected throughout the evening. The Building Awards 2015 was a very glamourous affair; however surpassing the glamour was a more down to earth feeling.
The International Builders Show* is a trade show for US national home builders. Two things to clear up first; It’s definitely not a US version of Ecobuild and it’s not really international either (bar a small Chinese exhibiting contingent and me).Read More
Ecobuild is over for yet another year and as many of you know we set out to find the best uses of digital marketing before, and during, the show. We had a number of exhibitors enter our #digibuild award and were very impressed with what we saw in the run up to Ecobuild as well as what went on at the show. The winner faced some tough competition from runners up Alumasc and Jewson,who also did a brilliant job.
Finalised your marketing for Ecobuild yet? Have you considered how you’ll maximise your presence at the show, collect qualified business leads, and measure your activities afterwards? We’re aware of just how frantic and fretful the approach to a big show can be, and often planning marketing activities at the show takes a back burner.
Below are a few straightforward ways you can make better use of your digital marketing toolkit at Ecobuild. If you would also like to enter our ‘best use of digital marketing award‘ then tweet @PauleyCreative with the hashtag #digibuild.

Don’t worry we’re not going to bamboozle you with weird or wonderful technologies – hopefully these are all mediums you’ll be familiar with, if not engaging in already; we’re simply hoping to make your digital marketing tactics work harder for your business objectives.
Last night saw an impressive gathering of senior industry figures congregated at One Birdcage Walk for the invite only CIMCIG chairman’s event at the equally impressive HQ of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers [IMechE]. On the menu, BIM and the barriers to adoption. Chairman Ian Exall, CIMCIG (and Aqualisa) gave a brief but concise introduction to the panel and suggested that the audience participate at will.
Paul Morrell, Government CCA
Mike Sheehan, Director of Sustainability, WSP
Alan Crane, President CIOB
Chris Gilmour, Design and Marketing Director, BAM Construct UK
Karl Redmond, Construction Sector Network, Leeds Metropolitan University
Opening gambits from the panel came thick and fast:
Paul Morrell (my interpretation of what he said): Supply chain collaboration is key to successful adoption. Contractors need to work with consultants and consultants to learn about 3d modeling from product manufacturers. There needn’t be stringent standards that everyone adopts however there needs to be enough universal standards that allow confidence in adoption so as not to give rise to fear of investment in the wrong place.
