Plastics in Construction

Dragons’ Den Innovation Pitch Series

Thursday 18th June, 14:00-15:30, Online (Zoom)



The Alliance for Sustainable Building Products (ASBP), in collaboration with the ASBP Plastics in Construction Group, has launched an exciting new innovation pitch series.

Aimed at innovators, start-ups and manufacturers launching new product ranges, the purpose of the ‘Dragons’ Den’ style series is to identify innovative alternatives to conventional plastic building materials and packaging. The products can be at any stage of the innovation cycle from early development to market ready.

Please join us on Thursday 18th June, 14:00-15:30 for the first of the Dragon’s Den pitch events, focused on innovative insulation materials. We’ll also be launching our new Plastics in Construction Introductory Guide!

You’ll also have a chance to be a ‘Dragon’ and vote for your favourite pitch with our audience poll. Register now for FREE!
