Mack Brooks to launch civil infrastructure show in London

Mack Brooks plans to launch its first Civil Infrastructure and Technology Exhibition (CITE) alongside its Infrarail event at Earls Court in 2014.
 
CITE is aimed at the entire supply chain of the UK’s transport, construction, utilities and communications infrastructure sector, which has been earmarked by the Government as a key area of the growth. Between £40bn and £50bn in investment is being underwritten by the Government to boost general infrastructure developments in a bid to kickstart the UK economy.
 
Mack Brooks’ new trade show will be co-located with the biennial Infrarail exhibition for the rail infrastructure sector, which will relocate from The NEC in Birmingham to London for its 2014 edition. The show took place in May and attracted nearly 4,600 visitors and more than 200 exhibitors. It was opened by transport minister Theresa Villiers.
 
“We believe that by staging CITE in London in 2014 we will provide a valuable showcase for companies aiming to contribute to the development of the UK’s national infrastructure,” Mack Brooks chairman Stephen Brooks said.

Brooks pointed to the organiser’s history in infrastructure globally, including its brands Inter Airport Europe, China and India, plus Intertunnel shows in Italy and Russia. Mack Brooks also holds its biennial Railtex event at Earls Court for the rail industry, which returns in 2013 with a new plant area.
 
“CITE will also enable the industry to demonstrate its considerable capabilities to a wider international audience,” Brooks continued. “We have many years of experience in successfully organising exhibitions covering specific areas of critical infrastructure such as airports and railways. This equips us very well to serve the dynamic civil infrastructure and technology market.”
 
The choice of Earls Court will depend on the future of the site, which is currently the subject of a planning application from site owner and property developer, Capital and Counties. If approved, the redevelopment would see the Earls Court Exhibition Centres demolished in favour of 8,000 new homes.
 
In the event Earls Court is not available in 2014, an alternative London site will be chosen for Infrarail and CITE, a Mack Brooks spokesman said.
 
Site manager, Earls Court and Olympia Venues, is currently taking bookings for exhibitions and events at both Earls Court venues until the end of 2013.
