Even bigger and better

Civils and Pipelines will be back in two years' time. Alastair McLellan previews the show.

Civils and Pipelines 2002 is set to catch fire with its shift to flaming June.

The third Civils and Pipelines exhibition will take place between Monday and Thursday, 3-6 June. Once again it will be sited alongside Interbuild.

The 2002 event sees Civils return to the NEC's Hall 12 and Pipelines to Hall 11, where the 1998 shows were held. The move has been made to ensure that both shows retain their focus and unique character while still benefiting from their proximity to Interbuild.

A new boost will come from a construction plant show scheduled to take place in the demonstration area next to the Civils and Pipelines halls.

Once again the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Pipeline Industries Guild will be playing an important role in the development of the shows.

The marketing campaign is set to widen the pull of the show, as well as increasing its attraction to clients and international visitors.

NCE, of course, will continue to use its considerable marketing muscle to make sure that as many members of the civil engineering profession as possible have cleared their diaries for early June 2002.

The 2002 show has already begun to bring in the exhibitors.

One third of the exhibition space has already been snapped up by this year's exhibitors.

Among those on the floor plan for 2002 are Cooper Clarke, Glynwed, Lafarge, International Pipeline Products and Wavin.

And although it is still early days, new exhibitors are taking an interest in Civils and Pipelines, with Shell UK Oil Products leading the way.

Although hard to imagine for those who were there, Interbuild 2002 will be even larger than this year's show.

As well as the new plant show, a Security and Fire Prevention exhibition has been added and other opportunities are being explored.

In all, the show will boast around 8,000 sq/m, of which 40% has already been reserved.
