‘CAB Thrives at Ecobuild’

There was a danger of bad news fatigue overshadowing Ecobuild 2013 but the well located CAB stand showed no signs of it at all.

This was highlighted by the sheer volume of visitors and interest in the Association’s activities and membership opportunities from amongst the 45,000 visitors to the show which included around 40% of CAB’s entire membership who took time out to visit the stand in the North Gallery.       


This year, the usual CAB Team at the show was strengthened with new CAB Technical Director, Dr Justin Furness, who joined in mid-February. Yes there were less stands and unsurprisingly less visitors as a result but there was an air of confidence in visitors and CAB now has its most exciting set of leads to follow up in the 6 years of exhibiting at the show.

The CAB stand was well placed on the intersection of three walkways which ensured good visibility and it represented an excellent meeting point for CAB’s growing membership. Aluminium’s key sustainability messages were again a key focus of the stand with many visitors choosing to share them on social media networks across Europe and worldwide. While the show still has an ‘eco’ edge, it has evolved into a general construction show which still attracts key specifiers and industry decision makers from across the UK and Europe.

CAB’s Chief Executive, Justin Ratcliffe commented ‘Ecobuild has evolved over the years and remains a key show for ourselves and several of our members. The expected reduction in numbers this year was more than compensated by an increase in both the quality of the visitor and their knowledge.’

For more information about CAB, its 2013 events programme and its membership, which is open to anyone in the commercial aluminium supply chain or  aluminium home improvement sector, please contact Julie Harley at the CAB office on01453 82 8851 or email julie.harley@c-a-b.org.uk
