The Materials 2018 education programme will include talks and debates from many key industry figures. Architects, engineers, academics, manufacturers, and associations will share their experience and knowledge.
It was a very interesting event and I made some useful new contacts from exhibitors, delegates and fellow presenters.

I thought that Materials 2017 was a good show, and whilst small it did provide me with a chance to meet with collaborators both old and new.

I learned some new things which really did have relevance to my work in design and construction.

MATERIALS 2017 EDUCATION PROGRAMME
Materials 2017 featured some of the industry’s biggest influencers via its conference and seminar education programmes.
Speakers included professionals from design firms (including Arup, FMDC, and Hobs Studio), engineering firms (including GL&SS and Structuremode), industry associations (including BBA, The Concrete Centre, and SCIN), professors and other academics from UK universities (including representatives of BRE Centre for Innovative Construction Materials and BioComposites Centre, Bangor University) as well as industry leading material manufacturers and suppliers (including Armourcoat-Ductal, Dow Corning and Tata Steel).
A wide variety of materials – from ceramics, stone, brick, and timber to glass, concrete, metal, and smart materials – were discussed, looking not only at their use in creating striking and functional designs but also at alternative uses beyond their common purposes.
