The CONCRETE Times • FEB 2015 THE UK CONCRETE SHOW 2015 - seminar program SEMINAR HIGHLIGHTS AT UKCS2015 the show seminars are always popular and the 2015 programme will be no exception however we have rung the changes in terms of duration and q&A. 14 As ever, we have an excellent seminar line-up for attendees at The UK CONCRETE Show 2015. The standard length of sessions in 2015 has been reduced from 50 minutes to 25 minutes however certain sessions have been allocated the longer time, e.g. presentations with a speaker panel or those anticipated to need more time due to the anticipated volume of audience questions. One such is Supply of Reinforcement Steel to the UK market, a panel style presentation chaired by Concrete Times Editor, Steven Callaghan and featuring Chris Hagg of the Celsa Steel UK and Ian Power of UK Steel. Running at 12.00 on day 2 of the show, Thursday 26 February, 2015, in Seminar 2, this one is likely to be popular. The seminar will discuss the steel reinforcement supply situation in the wake of the recent uncertainties surrounding some imported product.
