Futurebuild unveils its 2023 seminar programme by the industry, for the industry

Reaching net zero by 2050 is no simple task and no one person or company has all the answers. That’s why it is essential to share our knowledge and learn from each other so we can effect real positive change in the built environment.

Handing over the reins of their seminar programme to the great thinkers and disruptors in our sector, Futurebuild is doing its part to share the knowledge, give a forum to ask questions and as a collective, start to bring to life some of the answers to help us deliver a better built environment. Curated and delivered by over 90 industry leading partners and featuring a stellar line-up of over 300 speakers, the seminar programme is bringing the whole industry together to debate and learn from each other.

Taking place from March 7th to March 9th at London’s ExCeL, the three day programme will educate and inform across a range of subject areas with content that is relevant now. The programme features practical and actionable CPD accredited sessions so visitors can gain many CPD points in one visit and at the same time acquire the knowledge and skills that will help them in their day-to-day role.

Expanded for 2023, 135 seminar sessions will offer strength and breadth of content and will be delivered across seven seminar stages: materials, interiors & lighting, buildings & offsite, retrofit, sustainable infrastructure, energy & district energy and digital.

Stand out sessions from across the ambitious programme include masterclasses with Bill Dunster, architect and founder of ZedPower; Duncan Baker-Brown, co-founder of BBM Sustainable Design Ltd; Zerlina Hughes, founder and creative director of Studio ZNA; Dr Tom Woolley, architect and academic, and David Cheshire, sustainability director at AECOM. They will explore and tackle some of the industry’s biggest and most critical topics from ‘zero bills’ homes to material use, lighting design to bio-based materials and building a circular future.

“Our well-respected seminar programme will provide an opportunity for companies and professionals throughout the construction supply chain to take a stand and speak on issues they are passionate about. These daily sessions on each of the stages will share the latest thinking and research to update, inform and inspire visitors to make a positive change,” explained Martin Hurn, event director at Futurebuild. “By inviting pioneers in sustainability to share their success stories, it’s time for the industry to gather and take a stand too.”

Futurebuild 2023 will take place from March 7th to March 9th London’s ExCeL. Check out the full seminar programme and speaker line-up by visiting the Futurebuild website. Don’t miss out on next year’s event. Visitor registration is now open
