Introducing the future... through the eyes of our visitors
When we made the decision to evolve the event into Futurebuild, one of our key priorities was ensuring it was 100% focused on what our thousands of attendees most want to see and experience when they visit.
We’re extremely proud of the quality of visitor we attract to our event, with 88% of attendees holding buying and/or specification responsibilities. When it comes to what matters most to them, our post-event surveys have revealed that they actively want to find and understand the potential of the latest innovations and emerging technologies in helping them tackle the challenges the face.
Of course, this aligns completely with our vision for the evolution of the event. Our mission is to ensure that it is focused on exploring future trends and providing the tools and inspiration that can empower industry to make a real difference at a time of great change and opportunity.
The Futurebuild Hubs – six dedicated areas focused on critical areas of the built environment – are central to meeting this ambition.
The Hubs will provide dedicated, distinct platforms where senior decision-makers can join with sector-specific manufacturers and suppliers to identify and explore the latest, most innovative technologies and initiatives. Everything about the Hubs will be centred around delivering practical solutions that address the biggest issues head on – enabling visitors to prepare for tomorrow by acting today.
Of course, with such an emphasis on delivering immediately-available solutions that can help visitors perform more effectively in their jobs today, we know that exhibiting brands and their product offerings will be central to the Hub experience.
So, to help them ensure they’re perfectly positioned to meet the needs and expectations of our unrivalled audience of active buyer attendees, we’re launching a series of blog posts exploring exactly what visitors consider the biggest issues and opportunities shaping the future of their respective sectors.
Crucially, the series will also uncover unique insights into what these buyers and specifiers will be looking for in terms of new solutions and approaches to the challenges they are facing.
From major architects to leading engineers, top sustainability experts to construction bosses, the industry-leaders contributing to our ‘The Future Of…’ blog series will set out what they see as the major themes set to dominate the horizon – and the role of new products and technologies in meeting these issues – across each of the Hub areas:
- Offsite construction
- Urban infrastructure
We know that exciting brands, and their products, are central to the Futurebuild experience. Visitor feedback tells us time and time again that they want to see as many new, innovative products and systems as possible at the event.
So, we want to hear from manufacturers and understand their views and insights on how the initiatives and innovations they are developing can support improved outcomes for the industry they serve. Share your thoughts on the future of your industry, and learn more about exhibiting at Futurebuild.
