London’s leading construction and design show is back for 2019 and this time it is bigger and better than ever before.

Spanning across two floors, London Build is packed with content, networking and entertainment.

This year will have an important focus on mental health, well-being, diversity and equality on the main stage and throughout the exhibition, as well as opportunities to get up to date with upcoming major construction projects and opportunities across Greater London and the UK.

London Build will be boasting CPD accredited sessions across eight different summits, featuring accredited training workshops in everything from sustainability and BIM to Advanced Digital and Social Media Construction Marketing.

Its extensive programme of over 500 esteemed 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, Graham Watts the CEO of Construction Industry Council, Sharon Duffy the Head of Transport Infrastructure at Transport for London, and David Speight the Project Delivery Director Heathrow Expansion of Heathro– 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 CEO’s 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. It is 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.

Networking opportunities include its first ever LinkedIn Networking Lounge – a ground-breaking networking initiative which enables attendees to network and make new contacts whilst simultaneously building their online network through LinkedIn using QR codes and a timetable of Speed Networking events.

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

London Build believes that doing business should be fun, and includes within the event the Festival of Construction. Featuring comedy acts, entertainment, live music, celebrity guests, London Beer Festival, gin tastings and prize giveaways, the Festival of Construction promises to be the biggest festival in construction, offering you the chance to rub shoulders with big industry names and celebrity guests, whilst indulging in London’s finest food, drinks and live entertainment.
