Floodex is fast becoming the biggest trade event in the UK for flood defence and mitigation and has been running for six successful years.
Floodex has always attracted senior level people from the Internal Drainage Boards, member flood officers and engineers from the Association of SuDS Authorities, relevant people from the Environment Agency, Local Authorities, engineering firms, contractors, developers, planners, estate managers, facility managers and many others.
If the lockdowns and recent pandemic issues have proven anything, it is that you need to meet people face to face, to generate new business, network, exchange ideas and take advantage of serendipitous encounters.
Electronic communication has its place, but will never replace human contact to generate trust, genuine feedback, affiliation and shared emotions. As an article in The Economist put it “you can’t Amazon a trade event”.
Co-located with the National Drainage Show
We’re also delighted to be able to announce that we’ll be co-located with the National Drainage Show, with the support of the National Association of Drainage Contractors and Drain Trader magazine.
“The co-location with the National Drainage Show is a perfect fit,” comments event director Jon Irwin, he adds, “For the construction and utilities sectors, drainage is critical infrastructure. Done well, it mitigates against flood risk, which is where there is a really good cross-over between the two events.”
