Remember, remember – the 17-18 November: it’s London Build!

The countdown is on to the UK’s leading construction show. London Build returns to Olympia London’s Grand Hall for the in-person live expo on 17 and 18 November.

Everyone involved in the construction industry in the capital and throughout the UK are invited to come and meet, network and do business with thousands of the UK’s top contractors, developers, architects, civil engineers and more.

This year the show will feature more than 500 speakers across six stages, hundreds of exhibitors, over 200 CPD sessions and exclusive, free-to-attend networking events, including Meet the Buyer, Women in Construction and Diversity in Construction, plus the Festival of Construction, with plenty of entertainment, live performances and music, surprise celebrity guests and much, much more.

As organisers Oliver Kinross explain: “London Build is the ultimate platform for networking and connecting with thousands of senior-level decision-makers, buyers and influencers from across the UK's entire built environment. Discover how you can get involved with major construction projects in the UK as you connect with industry experts and senior representatives from government, architects, major developers, housing builders, and Tier 1 contractors.”

Winner of Best Brand Expansion at the Exhibition News Awards and finalist of Best Trade Show in the UK at the AEO Awards, London Build draws superlatives from across the range of exhibitors, while feedback from exhibitors and those attending alike speaks for itself.

Last time the show attracted over 27,500 visitors from across the UK’s entire construction industry, making it a one-stop show to network with key buyers, learn of the latest project opportunities and acquire thousands of new business leads.

The show’s unrivalled seminar and CPD programme takes place across six stages hosting a number of summits:

  • The Future of Construction Stage attracts thousands of construction professionals across the UK to learn of the latest developments, innovations and project opportunities the industry has to offer.
  • The Sustainability Summit will offer Lessons Learned from COP26 – with speakers hot-footing from Glasgow to address the conference – together with sessions on Building Back Healthier and Greener, the Circular Economy in Construction and tackling modern slavery
  • The BIM & Digital Construction Stage sees BIM and digital construction professionals coming together to learn about the latest technology, innovation and case studies of digital transformations from leading industry experts.
  • The Fire Safety Summit will reflect on-going concerns. Among the sessions, two will be led by leading lights in the Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP).
  • The Future of Marketing will address the latest challenge for the marketeer: social media.
  • The Diversity and Inclusion Stage will host many notable figures who are driving change towards a more diverse construction industry.

For a more relaxed environment, what better way to expand connections than to head over to the Built Environment Hub to network with other visitors at free-to-attend networking events. Visitors can exchange business cards and connect with the UK construction industry’s most influential figures. Building connections has never been easier.

The wide range of networking events taking place include Women in Construction Networking, Diversity in Construction, London Constructing Excellence Breakfast and many more.

Raj Kumar Suresh, senior urban designer at Atkins, described his experience of the last London Build Expo: “The breath of themes addressed, the opportunity to meet a lot of very interesting people in the industry and the buzzing atmosphere it was all done in…made the London Build show one of the most enjoyable events this year.”
