Futurebuild is back 2023
FUTUREBUILD IS BACK IN 2023 FOR ITS MOST IMPORTANT YEAR EVER AND TAKING A STAND FOR A BETTER BUILT ENVIRONMENT
Futurebuild, the leading showcase for product innovation in the construction industry is back in 2023 and taking a stand for a better built environment. The sustainability pioneer will return to ExCeL London from March 7 – 9 and provide the stage for inspiring ideas, innovative solutions and knowledge sharing to help us create net zero buildings faster, more safely and more efficiently.
Now in its 17th year, Futurebuild has kept sustainability at its core and this year’s theme sees the event taking a stand for a better built environment. Futurebuild will continue its mission to build a better future and show its commitment to playing its part in our net zero outcomes. Having launched their ‘Take a Stand’ campaign this summer, Futurebuild is also urging companies and professionals throughout the construction supply chain to act now and take a similar step, all pledges will be displayed at the event in March. They have already been overwhelmed with support from hundreds of exhibitors, speakers and partners pledging to ‘take a stand’ on an issue they passionately believe will help propel the industry towards a more sustainable future.
Definitive action is needed now if we are going to meet our net zero goal and that is why Futurebuild is set to be the most significant event in the built environment calendar as well as the most important edition in Futurebuild’s (previously Ecobuild) history. It will bring together specifiers, decision-makers and disruptive thinkers in one place to exchange know-how, discover game-changing new products and technologies, and forge new business connections as we accelerate our journey to net zero.
More than 15,000 professionals from across the entire supply chain including architects, housebuilders, developers, consultants, contractors and manufacturers will come together to discover these solutions and find new ways of delivering quality buildings more sustainably, whilst meeting and exceeding regulatory and compliance requirements.
Futurebuild will continue to be the industry platform for innovation and elevate further with a wealth of opportunities to showcase the most innovative technology, products and services. With the events floorplan packed with over 400 of the most innovative brands, start-ups and industry leaders, this year’s show will cover every aspect of the built environment.
At the heart of this is FutureX Innovation (in partnership with BEIS) which will focus on start-ups and SMEs who will bring never seen before innovations to the event and share their experience of taking their innovation from initial idea through development to realisation. The spotlight will also include an Innovation Stage that will host the new Big Ideas Pitch giving companies another way to get involved and share, what could be, the next revolutionary idea.
Those attending can also find further inspiration through the return of the renowned Innovation Trail, providing a showcase for 20 Innovation Partners. The Trail will give leading specifiers and decision-makers the opportunity to explore revolutionary products, solutions and materials and meet the leading thinkers behind these innovations. The Big Innovation Pitch will also return and offer exhibiting companies the chance of being crowned winner in 2023. A huge success in 2022, last year’s competition received over 90 submissions, that were shortlisted down to six finalists who then battled it out by pitching live in the conference arena.
Futurebuild will be curated into eight show sections including Buildings, Digital, Energy, Interiors, Materials, Offsite, and Sustainable Infrastructure. The newly expanded Retrofit section, in partnership with The Retrofit Academy CIC and Osmosis, will be showcasing the best solutions, technologies and services, that together, can unite and strengthen the delivery of whole house retrofit at scale. The event will also feature three new spotlights, Lighting in partnership with KNX UK, District Energy in partnership with UKDEA and FutureX Innovation in partnership with BEIS.
The Futurebuild 2023 conference programme, sponsored by SNRG and Hub Brussels, will explore the role we all have to play to meet our net zero targets and will feature world-class speakers sharing their experiences and debating the most critical issues. Day one focuses on Looking Forward and why we need to develop the foresight necessary to break out of our current mindset. Day 2 will explore the nature of Changing and especially ‘behaviour change.’ Day 3 will move on to Taking Action, hearing from those who have been doing just that and exploring plans that can take society and the construction industry forward.
The seminar programme has expanded for 2023 with content delivered across eight stages. The programme will deliver practical learning and guidance providing you with the knowledge and advice you need. All sessions in this year’s programme will be curated by over 90 industry leading partners and associations such as CIAT, The Good Homes Alliance, BRE, Passivhaus Trust, Built by Nature, IOM World, RIBA and UKDEA (District Energy Association) to name but a few.
“Sustainability has been at the heart of Futurebuild for 16 years and we are more committed than ever to ensure our built environment remains on track to achieving our net-zero goals” explains Martin Hurn, event director at Futurebuild. “Futurebuild is an open invitation to a better built environment and is the place to see innovation first hand. Our event is a hub of shared ideas, debate and solutions, and by coming together we can begin to understand the advancements in sustainable construction and the emerging technologies that will make net zero possible.”
Everyone in the supply chain has a solution that can make a positive change. Futurebuild 2023 will provide the ultimate stage to showcase that commitment to the creation of a better building industry and achieving net zero. By looking at the bigger picture, we can learn from each other’s journey to sustainability and what we need to do to achieve net zero.
Futurebuild 2023 will take place from March 7th to March 9th London’s ExCeL. For more details and exhibitor enquires, visit www.futurebuild.co.uk
