Inaugural Ecobuild show draws 57,000

Ecobuild 2012

UBM has claimed its first Ecobuild show had more than 1,500 exhibitors and 57,000 attendees.
 
The show, held at Excel London on 20-22 March had more than 130 free conference and seminar sessions running alongside the exhibition. These featured a host of high-profile politicians and industry experts including former justice secretary Jack Straw, ex-shadow Chancellor MichaelPortillo, and TV presenters Kevin McCloud and Jonathan Dimbleby.
 
Ecobuild has traditionally not been ABC audited, but this year the show collected visitor figures using its auditing process.

Last year’s show claimed to have 55,000 visitors.

“Ecobuild has proved once again that it’s the meeting place for the sustainable built environment community,” said portfolio director James Blue.
 
“Ecobuild is about sharing ideas and best practice, sparking debate and discussion and learning about the most current regulations and legislation. The event could not have come at a more critical time for the built environment sector.”
 
For the show UBM combined its events and publishing arms to help devise the content.
 
“Our experience and existing products within the built environment mean that we’re in a strong position to grow Ecobuild and to continue to provide the industry with an event which encourages debate, discussion and innovation,” added Blue.
 
Ecobuild was acquired by UBM in July 2011 for a potential £51m.
