Ulster construction firms aim to build relationships at trade showcase

Seven Northern Ireland construction and building services companies are to meet key international buyers at a major exhibition in Birmingham.

The companies are taking part in the new BEST- Building Environment Solutions and Technologies - exhibition at the National Exhibition Centre.

Invest NI has organised meetings for the companies with potential customers visiting the show from the UK, other parts of Europe, and further afield.

Dr Vicky Kell, Invest NI trade director, said that BEST is the only UK event to focus on issues such as innovation and excellence across the entire built environment.

"Invitations have been issued by the organisers to key influencers of product specification and procurement from across the industry, those who hold the budgets, clients, contractors and specifiers, that our companies will want to meet and discuss business with," she said.

"Among those invited will be key decision makers from local authorities, schools, academies, universities and the retail sector."

The companies taking part include Antrim engineering firm Blackbourne, BrookventAir of Dunmurry, Kingspan Water from Portadown and McAvoy Off-site from Dungannon.
