Future of Construction Summit: 12-13 May, 2021

About the event

Disruptive change is coming to the construction industry, and it will affect every segment of the value chain. The Covid-19 pandemic has only accelerated this change and created a greater imperative to act.

Executives, investors, and policy makers need to step up the scale and speed of their responses to make sure they stand on the right side of a transformation that will create new winners but also leave many behind.

The Future of Construction Summit explored how the entire ecosystem of construction will change, how much value is at risk for incumbents, and how companies can collaborate and leverage innovative approaches to create a more profitable and sustainable industry.

It looked at the human elements of leadership, diversity and change management, as well as the technologies, materials, industrial approaches and broader digitisation trends that are redefining the way the industry operates.
