The UK’s CIVIL INFRASTRUCTURE & TECHNOLOGY EXHIBITION is announced for May 2014

Posted: Wednesday 31st October 2012

The Civil Infrastructure & Technology Exhibition – CITE 2014 – will take place from 20-22 May 2014 at Earls Court, London.

CITE will provide the entire supply chain of the UK’s transport, construction, utilities and communications infrastructure sector with a platform to meet, discuss, learn about and progress the critical areas which have been highlighted by the Government as key areas of growth for the UK economy, and vital to enable the country to compete effectively in the modern world.

Against the backdrop of the announcement that between £40-50bn will be invested in general infrastructure, CITE 2014 will support the needs of the entire UK civil infrastructure market during this important time, providing the ideal platform for organisations and industry professionals to network and do business over three days in London.

CITE 2014 will be co-located with Infrarail 2014, the definitive and well-established UK rail infrastructure exhibition, which attracts over 5,000 industry professionals from across the entire supply chain. The 9th edition of Infrarail was held over 3 days at the NEC in Birmingham in May this year, where over 200 exhibitors displayed their product innovations and service solutions for the market. The show was opened by the Rt Hon Theresa Villiers MP, Minister of State for Transport, and Jeremy Candfield, Director General of the Railway Industry Association.

From roads to ports, electricity generation to mobile & broadband technology and coverage, infrastructure projects for the UK are high on the agenda. Developments in infrastructure are the crucial backbone of a modern economy and are also a major determinant of growth and productivity.

Organiser Mack Brooks Exhibitions Ltd runs successful infrastructure events throughout the world, including the world’s leading airport exhibition, Inter Airport Europe, Inter Airport China and Inter Airport India, plus INTERtunnel shows covering tunnelling technology in Italy and Russia. Mack Brooks Exhibitions’ experience in running events that are vital to infrastructure services throughout the world, in addition to the knowledge gained from 20 years of rail infrastructure exhibitions, provides a solid domestic and international base for CITE 2014.

Mack Brooks’ Chairman Stephen Brooks comments: “We believe that by staging CITE in London in 2014 we will provide a valuable showcase for companies aiming to contribute to the development of the UK’s national infrastructure. The event will also enable the industry to demonstrate its considerable capabilities to a wider international audience. We have many years of experience in successfully organising exhibitions covering specific areas of critical infrastructure such as airports and railways. This equips us very well to serve the dynamic civil infrastructure and technology market.”

Dr Alan Lawton, past Chairman of IMechE Railway Division comments: "I welcome this news. An exhibition that provides the whole supply chain with business and networking opportunities will undoubtedly support the needs of the industry at this important time for infrastructure in the UK. Taking the success of Infrarail into consideration I believe that CITE is a logical step to focus on and encompass the entire infrastructure industry."
