Another great UKCW - Why we exhibit at trade shows

Posted by Chloe Burrell on 24 Oct 2018 in Events  

October once again saw us exhibit at The Build Show during UK Construction Week. The show is an important feature on our calendar and one we look forward to each year.  But why does a recruitment agency exhibit at a Construction Trade Show?

We find the show invaluable in not only developing our knowledge of the industry but helping us maintain our ethos.  It’s all about Adding Real Value – and that’s WHY ARV Solutions was created.

We gain great benefit from immersing ourselves at trade shows, exploring the show, discovering new products and solutions, sitting in on seminars, and meeting people face to face, allowing us to build and maintain relationships. 

Through attending these shows we are able to sustain unrivalled industry knowledge, by learning about the latest industry developments, new start-ups, disruptors entering the sector, as well as developing relationships with upcoming and key players within the industry. This all allows us to find the latest and best jobs for our candidates and be best placed to help our clients grow and develop their business. 

This year our stand was situated within the Offsite Zone – an ever-growing area, with the establishment of offsite in mainstream construction, and the Structural Timber employers were out in force with the Structural Timber Awards were hosted nearby during the Show. 

We find having a permanent presence within the show invaluable, this allows us to have a presence ‘in the room’ offering clients and candidates the opportunity to engage with us on their terms as opposed to some other agencies who may visit and try to ‘sell’ to exhibitors within their own space.  

Relied on as a trusted advisor we are approached by a variety of candidates and clients and welcomed into their network. We are always invited to Trade Association events, from drink receptions to industry thought-leading roundtables, allowing us indispensable access to the latest industry developments and the opportunity to build trusted relationships. 

The Build Show provided us with over 20 serious recruitment enquiries from both current and in particular new clients, we even had interviews arranged before the show was over!

Get in touch today to see if we have opportunities for you.
