Construction event ecobuild has re-appointed Tangerine to handle communications activity for its 2018 show.

Futurebuild Events Ltd, the new owners of ecobuild, have renewed the relationship with Tangerine after a successful 2017 show.

Tangerine has been retained for the 2018 Ecobuild

It’s also broadened the scope to include social media support.

Futurebuild Events was set up Martin Hurn, who spent the last five years running Ecobuild with former owners UBM.

Hurn said: “Under our new management ecobuild is going to be different and we want next year’s event to be unlike any other trade show.

“To do this and to put on an event like ecobuild is no mean feat, so we need to work with partners that get our vision and can help us be fresh and bolder in our communications too.

“While we’re in initial stages of planning our 2018 event, Tangerine has already pushed us to be braver in how we communicate and find our new identity and voice in the construction event marketplace.”

Barry Maginn, senior account director at Tangerine, said: “Ecobuild 2018 will be something very new for the construction industry and we’re excited and proud to be a part of it.”
