Future of Construction Summit: 4-5 May, 2022

STRATEGY, TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION FOR CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY LEADERS

The mandate for structural change and technological adoption in the construction sector has never been stronger, with the COVID-19 pandemic only serving to accelerate the urgency to fix existing human resources, sustainability, productivity and data-visibility issues facing construction companies and their broader ecosystem of partners and suppliers.

Construction industry leaders need to embrace solutions that can enable them to better plan, manage and deliver projects that meet the needs of a rapidly changing group of customers. This is where innovative approaches to building materials and design, and the use of construction technology will play an increasingly important role.

The increasing digitisation of construction, allied to the global shift to ESG principles which prioritise sustainability, health and wellness will continue to fuel the transformation of the sector, and as a result, create opportunities for tech startups, financial investors and savvy construction players looking for a competitive advantage.

Back for its 2nd year, The Future of Construction Summit brings together the brightest minds in the industry to learn, network and source partners.
