If there is one message that is loud and clear from the global climate emergency, it’s that we cannot go on as we are. The recently-announced UK Government ‘Net Zero Strategy; Build Back Greener’ and the recently-concluded COP26 conference emphasise the importance of taking action now to keep global temperature rise to 1.5°C.
Futurebuild, previously Ecobuild, will be perfectly timed to focus on these key issues and the actions needed. The focus is no longer about ambition – it is about delivery. As the only event to attract 20,000+ senior professionals from right across the built environment, Futurebuild is the perfect opportunity for the industry to meet and collaborate together, to achieve the transformational change needed if the built environment is going to reach net zero.
As the home of innovation, Futurebuild 2022 will be organised into six sections – Buildings, Offsite, Interiors, Resourceful Materials, Energy and Critical Infrastructure. The curated event will showcase over 250 leading brands, the companies who are developing the most innovative technologies, products and solutions. Visitors can participate in the innovation trail, which highlights the event’s innovation partners. The winners of the Big Innovation Pitch, a competition that celebrates new approaches to the biggest challenges facing the industry, will also be announced during the event.
“Now, it is more important than ever to meet in person and do business face to face because our exhibitors and attendees are all working towards a common goal – achieving net zero,” explains Martin Hurn, Event Director at Futurebuild. “To ensure we can deliver a sustainable future, we’ve curated an event that cultivates cross-sector collaboration, addresses key industry issues and inspires transformational change.”
The event will also feature six spotlights: Digital Impact in partnership with Glider, Whole House Retrofit in partnership with the Retrofit Academy, Circular Materials in partnership with 540 World, District Energy in partnership with UKDEA, Future Installer in partnership with MCS and Intelligent Buildings in partnership with KNX. These spotlights will include a mixture of presentations, discussions and practical demonstrations that will cover the fundamental issues facing the built environment.
Visitors can also attend Futurebuild’s renowned knowledge programme, which includes a conference programme sponsored by Construction Innovation Hub that will explore ambition towards net zero on a macro-level, as well as two keynote stages. Each keynote stage session will be delivered by industry-leading partners and associations, such as the RIBA, Passivhaus Trust, MCS, BEIS, MPBA, ASBP, Good Homes Alliance, The Concrete Centre and many more.
