If you want to create something new, but don’t know where to start, this event will help you to understand trends, drivers for change, technologies, and other valuable information, to help you visualise where you can contribute to the future of the construction industry, and its supply chain.

They can offer knowledge about how to bring collaborative projects together, they can gather insights, and they offer understanding about how to bring technology in to solve challenges, when it can enable, support, inform, mitigate risks, communicate, analyse, direct, and offer other efficiencies.
