Further information

Drivers for the construction industry to digitise and to become more efficient and accountable have never been stronger. Digital data and cloud technology have helped other industries connect and regulate, so why is construction so far behind?

Product manufacturers are a key part of the construction supply chain and must continue to digitally transform to ensure the industry can effectively catch up with technological innovation and digitisation, overcome the challenges of inefficiency, and combat the inherent risks of getting it wrong.

We will bring together building product manufacturers, architects, contractors and industry experts central to the supply chain. We will look at the state of the industry, the economic landscape, the government’s drivers for change and the opportunity that digitisation presents.

This event is free to attend but places are limited so please register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
