PRECAST2017 – Once again, an outstanding success

12 May 2017

Sponsored by Trimble Tekla, PRECAST2017 was a phenomenal day with a record number of delegates, and nearly 70 exhibitors showcasing their latest products and services.

The event included a number of seminars from respected industry individuals, live demonstrations at intervals throughout the day, and the opportunity to network with professionals. Over 450 delegates attended the event, which included up to date briefings on key topics including Building Information Modelling (BIM), Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), and the topical conversation of BREXIT. The British Precast AGM also took place with British Precast president Matthew Clay of Forterra. As always, British Precast continues our initiatives with members to improve loading safety, with Wincanton holding a series of informative live demonstrations with vehicles outside of the stadium.

The Speed networking sessions with manufacturers were hugely popular, with suppliers in the industry given the opportunity to connect with potential new customers. Both full and associate members commented on how the sessions were beneficial in making connections and finding out more about the sector.

Andrew Minson, Executive Director of British Precast, said “The day was a great success, we had authoritative speakers and a variety of exhibitors showcasing their products. I am very appreciative of their contribution to making PRECAST2017 such a positive event.”
