The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF), the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT), the UK SIP Association (UKSIPS) and the UK Timber Frame Association (UKTFA) have signed up as official show partners for Timber Expo 2012 and discussions are taking place with several other key associations and organisations.
The partner associations logos will feature on the Timber Expo website, in the promotional ezine Expozine and in the official show guide, underlining their significant role in the construction sector. Members are offered several key benefits, including 5% discount on stand space and VIP status as visitors.
A feature unique to Timber Expo is the Timber Buyers Forum, which links exhibitors with major contractors, developers and clients. Christine Harding, BMF Marketing Manager said, We are pleased to be working with Timber Expo this year as an official show partner. A large number of our members are involved with timber and we look forward to promoting the show and the Timber Buyers Forum in particular.
Timber Expo will provide the opportunity for dialogue, networking and forging new business links, said TRADA Membership & Marketing Manager Rupert Scott . Even in this electronic age, there is no substitute for face to face discussion. We are delighted to be working closely with the BMF, CIAT, UKSIPS and UKTFA to enable the associations and their members to benefit from Timber Expo 2012 as a platform for promoting their activities and meeting with customers and specifiers.
