The Council for Aluminium in Building (CAB) has declared its first ever pavilion stand at Ecobuild 2010 a huge success, with the vast majority of the 6 member stands on the ‘CAB Aluminium Area’ keen to repeat the success. CAB staff were on hand throughout the 3 day show, which attracted a record 41,000 visitors to Earl’s Court, to discuss technical issues relating to standards, regulations and sustainability.
Justin Ratcliffe, CAB Chief Executive, commented on the show, “We were delighted to be invited to the show by the organisers to head up the CAB Aluminium Area and being a clearly marked feature area within Ecobuild helped to attract a number of visitors who might not otherwise have come to the stand. CAB members were also very supportive of the show as the stands within the Aluminium Area were booked very quickly. Other members took up full stands and this was one of the best attended events for members in recent years. I can honestly say that we were busy with visitors 100% of the time and it was positive to see so much activity in the industry.”
One of the main topics discussed at the show was that of tighter and more efficient supply chains - a topic which CAB will now be covering at a Regional Members’ meeting on 23 September 2010 at the RBS Williams F1 Conference Centre in Oxford. Main contractors and members will openly discuss how supply chains are changing and what commitment there is to them.
CAB is always keen to emphasise the value of membership of the association, whether a company works with aluminium or is a provider to the supply chain. Further information about CAB can be found on their website at www.c-a-b.org.uk or by contacting Julie Harley at the CAB office on 01453 828851
