The countdown is on to all the variety and fascination of The Surface & Materials Show, the feast of colour, texture, pattern and high-performance finishes at UK Construction Week, which offers nine key exhibitions under one convenient roof.
There is much to discover from both leading names and emerging brands, and much to learn from an extensive programme of talks, demonstrations and CPDs.
Fascinating products to experience at the show range from elegant wallpaper in on-trend botanical themes from rising star Kit Miles Studio, to hi-tech grids for pergolas and ‘air walls’ by I-Mesh and woven wire solutions with a retro feel from Amron Associates. Innovators such as Pintark by Loco Design explore the use of texture in materials with beguiling coverings in leather and metal. For the best in exterior finishes look to Sant Anselmo and Flowcrete and for the glamour of metallic effects head to Ayyapi to discover Solide Signature.
The Surface & Materials Show will also host informative talks, debates and CPDs from event partners, including BRE, Grimshaw Architects, The Design Concrete Centre, The Cambridge Graphene Centre, Canon 3D Printing, and Bath University among many other. Meanwhile, on the main stage at UKCW and three dedicated CPD hubs a key programme on building and fire safety will run.
