Polypipe on-board with Highways as it makes turn to digital

Wednesday 28th October 2020

Polypipe Civils & Green Urbanisation is proud to announce title sponsorship of this year’s Highways UK event. A five-day online event, the organisers are fully embracing the opportunities this virtual exhibition offers and are expecting to surpass the record attendance of 6,000 from last year.


Highways UK brings together those responsible for the UK’s roads infrastructure, attracting key influencers, thought leaders and decision makers from across the industry, with strong involvement from key sector clients, including Highways England, Sub-National Transport Bodies and many Local Authorities.


A first-time digital event, Highways UK is promising expert speakers in a conversational and insightful format as well as the opportunity to create new connections.


It’s not just the event that is benefiting from the flexibility of going virtual, Polypipe Civils & Green Urbanisation is taking full advantage and regularly updating its own content. Offering a ‘Lunch and Learn’ session as well as a complete overhaul of its booth in-line with the event’s focus on day four of sustainability and the environment.


With the company’s recent rebrand to bring Green Urbanisation (GU) to the forefront of Civils projects, Polypipe is taking the opportunity to showcase how GU can be integrated with highways solutions bringing enhanced biodiversity to realisation and working towards Highways England’s strategic goal to ‘Deliver better environmental outcomes’[1].


“We are looking forward to the Highways UK event next week,” comments John Moss, Business Development Director of Polypipe Civils & Green Urbanisation. “The online experience will offer flexible access to conference sessions focused on a wider spread of current topics and issues.


“It’s also a great platform to showcase our latest products and innovations having made some great additions to our product range recently with the introduction of Permatreat as well as the exciting news that our new Modular Wetlands product was shortlisted for the Innovative Construction Techniques awards.


“Ensuring our online visitors have a great experience is our priority and we will have product experts on hand ready to answer questions as well as our key accounts and specification teams available to discuss any project-related enquiries.”
