London Build 2019: show preview

London's leading construction and design show is back for 2019.

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.

What's on?

London Build will be hosting CPD accredited sessions across eight different summits, hosted by a range of speakers, and featuring accredited training workshops in everything from sustainability and BIM to Advanced Digital and Social Media Construction Marketing. The programme of over 500 speakers includes the likes of Juliemma McLoughlin, the Chief Planner of Development, Enterprise and Environment at Greater London Authority, Gillian Charlesworth, the CEO of BRE and Graham Watts, the CEO of Construction Industry Council – to name a few. Over 350 exhibitors will fill the venue.

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

Networking

London Build is looking forward to welcoming over 25,000 delegates over the two days. A high level of attendance is expected, offering an opportunity for networking with peers and clients alike.

Networking opportunities include the first ever LinkedIn Networking Lounge – an 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.

There will also be 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 the UK's largest ever networking meeting of Women in Construction – plus many more. 

London Build will also include the Festival of Construction. Featuring comedy acts, entertainment, live music, celebrity guests, gin tastings and prize giveaways.

Charity contests will be taking place across the two days, including a world record attempt! This will strive to break the world record for the greatest number of Movember Moustaches at one event to raise funds for men's health.

This is a show built for those in the industry who want to have fun, be inspired, and meet with thousands of designers, developers, contractors, local councils, housing associations and more.
