Why this year’s Digital Construction Week will be the ‘biggest ever’

  • 2 Sep 2019

Digital Construction Week, which returns to London ExCeL on 16-17 October, is set to be the ‘biggest ever’ with  180-industry-leading companies preparing to showcase their latest offerings at the event.

Those attending the event will have the opportunity to meet the teams behind the biggest and newest companies working to revolutionise the construction sector, and to experience live demonstrations of pioneering tech, products and services.

Event director Oliver Hughes explained: “As well as a long list of top exhibitors and the show’s extensive seminar programme, there’s also a host of additional features, larger seminar theatres, and a brand new conference arena for visitors to enjoy.”

Oliver also explained that he is thrilled to be welcoming a wide variety of new names to the show floor, in addition to many returning exhibitors. You can click here to see the full exhibitor list.

In addition to the central exhibition and the range of choice content on offer, the show also boasts a wealth of exciting features. The DCW Onsite Arena, running in partnership with Bluebeam, is a replica construction site where exhibitors and partners will showcase their technologies ‘in the field’ and visitors will get to experience live demos and ‘walkarounds’ with the Bluebeam team.

Plus, Drone Drag Racing will be back for 2019. Visitors will have the chance to sign up and take flight in the show’s drone racing competition for free, enabling them to get hands-on with the latest technology and learn about its application in the built environment, while having a little competitive fun and even getting the chance to win one!

Also returning for 2019 is the Start Up Zone, which will bring together the freshest new exhibitors offering a selection of up-to-the-minute technologies and concepts with the potential to solve some of the industry’s biggest challenges. They’ll offer live demos and tutorials so visitors can get their hands on the latest technology and equipment before anyone else.

Then at the end of the day, the After Hours Drinks Reception will allow visitors to catch-up with speakers and exhibitors they’ve seen through the day, meet up with colleagues and network with like-minded professionals. Drinks will be served to all guests on the exhibition show floor on Wednesday 16 October from 4.30pm to 6.00pm.
