Civils 2000 and Interbuild launch supershow

CIVILS 2000, NCE'S second exhibition at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, is to be extended to four days and staged alongside Interbuild, the UK's largest and longest-running building show.

The move follows the launch of a 50-50 joint venture between NCE's publisher, Emap Construct, and Interbuild organiser Montgomery.

The deal means that the bi-annual Interbuild will be moved from its traditional November date and will now take place six months later on 21-25 May 2000 at the NEC.

The resulting supershow will be the most comprehensive event ever staged for the UK construction industry. As well as Interbuild - which filled six halls at the NEC in 1997 - and Civils, the event will also include Civils' sister show Pipelines and Construct's new exhibition, the IT fair Construction Solutions (NCE 2 July). The organisers believe that, for the first time, the UK will have an international construction event to rival Germany's Bau and France's Btimat.

Civils and Pipelines will run from 22-25 May. The decision to add an extra day to both shows is a response to the success of the inaugural event in May this year, and the enthusiastic response from exhibitors towards the 2000 show. The show has already been moved from the NEC's Halls 11 and 12 to the much larger Halls 6, 7 and 8.

Careers in Construction, Emap Construct's careers event, due to take place on 16-17 October, has been cancelled.
