The construction industries of the UK and Ireland play host to thousands of events every year, from trade exhibitions and conferences to construction fairs and summits. Many of these events offer valuable information, inspirations as well as opportunities to compare and contrast different technologies and choose the most appropriate one for your home. 

If your company is about to approach a big construction project or is currently carrying out one, you will find popular construction summits in Ireland and the UK well worth visiting. The biggest construction trade shows bring many joinery brands together, letting you browse through a complete offer of modern windows and doors. What is more, the shows offer a unique opportunity for networking and finding new business parnters.

Construction fairs and summits: A source of knowledge and inspiration

Construction fairs and summits give you a great insight into the industry. You can learn new products, technologies, and the direction the industry is heading. But is a fair a good place to find a new supplier?

Event such as fairs, summits and construction weeks are very valuable in terms of:

  • learning new products – joinery brands often wait with launching new products till the fairs. This way they can get more attention and become industry experts. Being perceived as industry experts help them sell more in a shorter time, often for an exorbitant price.
  • learning new technologies
  • comparing and contrasting solutions provided by different brands
  • learning the prices
  • finding inspiration.

Very often we simply don’t know what type of windows or doors we are looking for. By attending some fairs and trade shows we gain more knowledge and become more aware of products that will be beneficial for our homes.

Having countless advantages, the biggest construction trade shows aren’t free from some drawbacks. The biggest ones are the exorbitant prices. Getting access to a huge number of prospective buyers, the sellers often offer their products at prices higher than products of the same features and quality can be purchased elsewhere. For this reason, we don’t recommend buying windows and doors at construction fairs. Instead, we’d like to draw your attention to other possibilities such as ordering them online.
