MaterialDistrict Expo: Materials that Matter

During the UK Construction Week 2018, at the section Surface and Materials Show, you can enjoy MaterialDistrict Expo on 9,10 and 11 October, with the theme “Materials that Matter”. This exhibition is entirely dedicated to materials for the building industry. For the Surface and Materials Show, MaterialDistrict has created the exhibition with 100 international materials that show the important role of future materials in our built environment.

We are all aware of future themes in the building industry: sustainability, circularity, saving energy, as well as healthy environments, smart solutions, lightweight constructions and conceptual interiors. What materials will be vital for these themes? MaterialDistrict selected 100 materials for this special exhibition “Materials that Matter”, such as lightweight composites, recycled plastic, engineered wood, natural materials like cork textile and bamboo façades, and new resources that were used to be called “waste”, like materials made of coffee ground or acoustic felt made of recycled denim. The expo will also show you acoustic solutions, smart interactive sunscreen materials and healthy biobased material sources.

For exterior and interior use, with functional properties and aesthetic use: come and be inspired with all your senses, touch, feel and experience the building materials of the future; the materials that matter in every sense.
