Rob Dixon, General Manager at GW said “We have Dave Blades at Hobson & Porter to thank for being invited and also for creating the event. It has allowed us to speak to people about what being a Plumber and Electrician is all about. It is great for me personally to be able to pass on some of the experience I have learned over the years to people who are potentially the future of our industry”
The event also gave the opportunity for all the exhibitors to network with each other and highlighted all the separate careers available within Construction and every aspect of the industry was present from Architects, Scaffolders, Electricians, Bricklayers and Designers.
