Brighton-based Director of Passiv Pod Clive Bonny led the way on the future of UK construction industry, as speaker at South East Construction Expo

The topics Clive will discuss focused around the crisis in UK construction and changes that could be made from using timber to improve quality and reduce costs as well as how to successfully engage in joint ventures and raise alternative finance for new projects.

The trade show, founded ten years ago and previously held in Kent, showcased the region’s largest range of construction products and services and is a ‘must visit’ for anyone whose business deals in development, property and construction.

Carole Black from South East Construction Expo said, “Sussex really is leading the way with its exciting construction projects in Brighton & Hove and across East and West Sussex

“The UK’s construction output stands at more than £110 billion per annum, accounts for ten per cent of employment and will continue to be a key driver in our prosperity over the coming years. We are committed to continuing to support this fast-moving industry with a leading conference and exhibition enabling sponsors, exhibitors and delegates to build lasting business relationships.”

 The event offered free Meet the Buyer appointments with the top construction companies in the country, great exhibitor packages, brilliant networking opportunities, high-quality CPD approved workshops, plus the latest news on projects and developments across the UK.

An exciting list of speakers and panel discussions covered every aspect of what is important to the industry right now, with Wayne Hemingway MBE from the Design Council, Kevin Byrne founder of Checkatrade and Anne Timpany from On Tap Plumbers speaking at the BIG networking breakfast and the entertaining Gyles Brandreth hosted the BIG construction dinner.
