Leading in London

London’s leading construction and design show is back, bigger and better than ever before. Spanning two floors, London Build is more than just an exhibition, it’s an event jam packed with content, networking and entertainment

This year, the south east’s leading construction event London Build will have a focus on mental health, well-being, diversity and equality throughout the exhibition. In addition, there will be opportunities to get up to date with upcoming major construction projects and opportunities across Greater London and the UK.

What’s on?
London Build will boast CPD accredited sessions across eight different summits, hosted by a great line-up of speakers. These sessions will feature training workshops in everything from sustainability and BIM to Advanced Digital and Social Media Construction Marketing. The extensive programme of over 500 speakers includes the likes of Juliemma McLoughlin the chief planner – Development, enterprise and environment at Greater London Authority, Fergus Harradence the deputy director of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Gillian Charlesworth the CEO of BRE, and David Speight the project delivery director of Heathrow’s expansion – to name a few.

Over 350 exhibitors will fill the venue including Procore, Powerday, Recticel, JLG, BT Openreach, Epson, Panasonic, Bauder, Beaulieu International, Roof Maker, Autodesk/Plangrid, George Boyd/Saint-Gobain, Wurth, Resapol and Bostik.

The Humans of Construction photography exhibition will be displaying 1,000 of the most influential and inspiring professionals working in the UK’s built environment, featuring individuals from a wide array of fascinating backgrounds in the industry, from CEOs to architects, pioneers to students and future leaders.

London Build is looking forward to welcoming over 25,000 registered contractors, architects, engineers, developers, councils and construction professionals over the two days. We’re expecting a high level of attendance from the UK’s top 100 contractors and architects, offering an “unbeatable opportunity for networking with peers and clients alike.”

The organisers commented: “We want you to leave London Build armed with a wide range of new connections and friends, and make sure you become part of an ongoing exciting and vibrant new community of like-minded professionals”.

Networking opportunities include the event’s first ever LinkedIn Networking Lounge – an initiative which enables attendees to network and make new contacts while simultaneously building their online network through LinkedIn using QR codes, and a timetable of Speed Networking events.

The event will also be hosting networking events such as Meet the Buyer by Constructionline, CIOB ‘Hub in the Pub’, Constructing Excellence Club Breakfast, BIM & Tonic, #TeqDen10x10, Diversity in Construction, and what’s thought to be the UK’s largest ever networking meeting of Women in Construction – plus many more.

An event like no other
London Build believes that doing business should be fun, and includes within the event the Festival of Construction. Featuring comedy acts, live music, celebrity guests, London Beer Festival and prize giveaways, the Festival of Construction promises to be the biggest festival in the industry, offering visitors the chance to rub shoulders with big industry names and celebrity guests, while indulging in food and drink and enjoying live entertainment.

Charity contests will be taking place across the two days, including London Build’s very own world record attempt for the greatest number of Movember Moustaches at one event, to raise funds for men’s health.

This truly is a show like no other, built for those in the industry who want to have fun, be inspired, and meet with thousands of architects, developers, contractors, local councils, housing associations, and more!
