Construction Expo returns to Sussex @ConstructExpo

The South East’s leading construction industry exhibition, the innovative South East Construction Expo, will be returning to Sussex in April 2020.

The event, being held at the South of England Event Centre, Ardingly, on 28 April 2020, will welcome speakers from across the industry, including Malcolm Clarke, Managing Director at Baxall Construction; Cedric Laurier, Chief Technical Officer at Gatwick Airport; and Julia Gregory, Director of Projects at Ebbsfleet Development Corporation.

Free to attend, the events are dedicated to the construction section and brings together clients, contractors, developer, consultants and other related industries from across the UK. With live demos of products, industry speakers and over 150 exhibitions the event is a ‘must-visit’ for anyone in property, development or construction.

A networking breakfast opens the events, followed by practical workshops, speakers, exhibitions and the opportunity to sign-up to ‘Meet the Buyer’ one-to-one sessions.

Ana Christie, Chief Executive of Sussex Chamber of Commerce, said: “Despite the ongoing political and economic uncertainty this past year, according to the Builder’s Conference, the performance of the UK construction sector shows no signs of slowing. In the first month of 2020, more than 400 companies won new contracts, so there is no better time to get along to events like this, make new contacts and win new business!”

An exciting programme of Speakers and Workshops are currently being put together and will be announced over the coming months. Advanced Panel Manufacturing will also be demonstrating their unique ‘green’ sustainable and eco-friendly, full format construction panels. These versatile, attractive and cost-effective, Fire Resistant A rated boards are easily assembled without the need for skilled labour.

Sussex Chamber of Commerce is supporting the event this year as well as the IoD. Big name businesses already involved include Balfour Beatty, Sunninghill, Glenigan, Builders Conference, Willmott Dixon, Galliford Try, Baxall, Logan Construction and Westridge Construction Ltd.

Over 2,500 delegates attended the Expo in September 2019, where 120 companies in the construction industry exhibited the latest technology, ideas and expertise and dozens of workshops and presentations were held on key topics for the industry.

This year will also see the event being held for the first time at Sandown Park Exhibition Centre, Esher on 23 September 2020.


South East Construction Awards 2020 has once again been launched with six categories, covering the sector, to be celebrated at a second South East Construction Expo to be held on 23 September at Sandown Park Exhibition Centre in Esher, Surrey.

Carole Black from South East Construction Expo said, “These awards celebrate our heroes in this industry with an exciting panel of judges seeking entries for categories, ranging from best construction project to best architectural design, best contractor to best supplier. We are also looking to celebrate women in the industry and want to reward the best apprentice on a construction project in the South East.

South East Construction Expo 2020 will take place at South of England Event Centre, Ardingly, Haywards Heath, Tuesday 28 April 2020, 9 am – 4pm.
