Digital Construction Week returns for 2024
Digital Construction Week, the UK’s leading event for innovation and technology in the built environment, has opened visitor registration for 2024.
Taking place on 5-6 June 2024 at ExCeL London, Digital Construction Week (DCW) features two days packed full of inspiring content. Including 300+ speakers across 10 stages, 120 hours of CPD accredited education, 150+ exhibitors, live demos, workshops, networking drinks, and much more.
Attendees will get the chance to network with other industry innovators, explore the future of the built environment and get inspired at this free to attend expo.
Event Director and Co-Founder of DCW, Ollie Hughes, says: “We’re excited to be planning a stand-out event for 2024, that offers even more opportunities for the industry to connect, collaborate and innovate.
“DCW is THE place to learn about the transformative technologies driving change and improving outcomes across the built environment. With free registration now open, we can’t wait to welcome our visitors on 5-6 June.”
Discover the innovations transforming the built environment
The latest solutions from 150+ leading built environment brands will be showcased at the event. DCW acts as a one-stop shop for visitors to learn how to use new technology to improve projects, assets, teams and business directly from the companies driving AECO forward.
The disruptive technologies and solutions set to be on display include digital twins, augmented reality, information management, automation and AI, drones, robotics and much more.
Visitors will discover how these solutions can help them be more efficient, collaborative, connected, sustainable and profitable.
An array of inspiring brands have been confirmed to exhibit at the ninth edition of DCW. These include Autodesk, Bentley Systems, Bluebeam, Causeway Technologies, Glider, IFS UK, Mission Room, MSite, Paperless Construction, Procore, Sir Robert McAlpine, Symetri, Strata, Trimble, Twinit, Xinaps, YardLink, and many more.
Learn and get inspired in the education programme
It’s not just in the central exhibition where the latest industry innovation will be in the spotlight. The event also boasts 10 theatres of free-to-attend talks, informative panels discussion, interactive workshops and more.
Hear from 300+ industry experts and get up to speed on the latest ideas shaping architecture and design, construction, engineering, and operation.
Speakers from Bryden Wood, Skanska, Laing O’Rourke, Restoration & Renewal (HoP), AECOM, John Lewis & Partners and Heathrow are just a few examples of big names who were part of the 2023 line-up.
The theatres are focused on some of the key areas shaping the built environment. These include information management, geospatial, digital transformation, people and change, asset management, net zero and more.
New for 2024 is the Table Talks Theatre, which will facilitate round table style sessions and debates on a variety of topics, encouraging interactive learning and networking. Attendees will be able to book their seats in advance, which is encouraged as turning up on the day may not guarantee a space. Further information on this will be shared soon.
Visitors can expect to be inspired and informed by high profile presenters and curated panel discussions covering the industry’s most pressing issues, exploring new ideas and actionable insights. The full programme will be announced in the spring.
