Editorial inquiries to Nadia Cameron: ncameron@mashmedia.netAdvertising inquiries to Jaime Linin: report the UK'S contractor marKet: Who'S in control?Earlier this year, the competitive landscape of the mainstream contractor market took a significant shift as we saw the second major merger among the top ranks of the market in four years. For some time, industry figureheads have warned that if contractor margins don't improve, we will soon see the collapse of one or more major contractors. Whether or not the mergers of Stanco/Opex and then Early Action Group were forced out of fiscal necessity, no-one can deny the contractor market is vulnerable and the spread of market share has reached a virtual duopoly for the first time in the UK. Exhibition News has commissioned an independent, in-depth research project to investigate industry perceptions of contractors, the buying behaviours of organisers and why the wealth divide is so great between those that hold the lion's share of the market and those that pick up scraps. Don't miss this important piece of industry analysis in next month's edition of Exhibition News, hitting desks 1 October.EXHIBITIONNEXT ISSUE
