Attending any of these upcoming construction events across the UK?

As a part of the UK construction industry, attending events up and down country is always a great experience. Getting first looks at new and innovative tech and software is exciting, and there are plenty of networking opportunities.

At the beginning of each year we usually like to compile a list of some of the biggest and best events on the calendar, but the last 2 years have been different than most.

While things have come a long way since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, there is still the risk that certain events might not be able to take place as planned.

Taking that into consideration, here’s a list of some of the UK construction events that are (hopefully) happening in 2022.

Futurebuild (1st – 3rd March)

Location – ExCel, London

Futurebuild is back in 2022 after opting to push back last year’s event due to the pandemic, and aims to tackle the biggest challenges impacting the built environment.

The event allows attendees to get hands-on experience with some of the latest innovations and products – featuring a range of different exhibitors, as well as multiple seminars, conferences and workshops over 3 days.
