With the UK’s population increasingly concentrated in high-density towns and cities, the urban environment has never been more important. Uniting green, blue, grey and social and economic infrastructure, the Hub provided a concentrated platform for visitors to explore and discuss all aspects of the city, apart from the buildings themselves.
Supporting professionals working across all segments of the built environment, from prestigious residential and commercial projects through to affordable social housing initiatives, the Hub explored universal infrastructure challenges and champion the development of urban environments that work better for inhabitants.
Central to the Urban Infrastructure experience was the dedicated seminar programme, sponsored by ACO. The extensive programme featured prominent experts and delivered CPD-accredited sessions on topics, ranging from urban climate-led design to how to put placemaking first.
To support in putting new-found knowledge to use straight away, over 50 exhibiting brands and key trade associations provided an immersive backdrop featuring a multitude of new product launches, practical demonstrations and exciting feature attractions.
