Show Preview - London Build
London's leading construction and design show, London Build, will return to the Olympia London on October 23rd & 24th. Since its launch four years ago, London Build has established itself as the largest construction show for London, covering all sectors within the built environment. After reaching full capacity in the Central and West halls, London Build will be moving to the Olympia’s National Hall for this year’s show.
This is not your average construction event. London Build believes doing business should be fun. It includes The Festival of Construction, featuring entertainment, comedy acts, celebrity guests, a Bavarian Oktoberfest beer festival, competitions, prize giveaways, live music, street food and much more.

Hundreds of leading suppliers will be showcasing their latest innovation, products and services across 9 specialised zones: Buildings, Infrastructure, BIM & Digital Construction, Fire Safety, Interior and Fit-out, London Design, Product Innovation, Site Machinery & Equipment and Sustainability.
Each zone acts as the focal point for eight ‘Summits’ with more than 200 hours of free CPD, conference and workshop sessions discussing the latest developments, challenges and opportunities across the UK’s built environment. A one-stop-shop to gain all over your CPD points over two days.
With more than 240 speakers including senior representatives from Greater London Authority, Crossrail, Homes England, Heathrow Airport Ltd, Tideway, Mace, Laing O'Rourke, Costain, HS2, Skanska, Land Securities, Balfour Beatty, Transport for London, Clancy Docwra, TateHindle, L&Q, Space group, Sir Robert McAlpine, David Miller Architects, Sweco UK, HKR Architects, Zaha Hadid Architects, Royal Docks Team, Paradigm Housing Group, Mott MacDonald, Arup, AECOM, Kier Group, Mace Group, Scott Brownrigg, Bouygues, Canary Wharf Group, Vinci, Interserve, Wates, Skanska, BPD and many more.

The annual Women in Construction Morning Networking session, now in its third year will take place on October 24th, attracting thousands of empowering women working in construction. This is the largest gathering of women in construction in the UK.
The involvement of 100+ high profile partners such as Constructing Excellence Club, Constructionline Meet the Buyer, The B1M Networking, BIM Open Mic and Passivhaus, enables London Build to deliver exciting content and high-level networking for all in attendance. The Built Environment Networking Hub will host free-to-attend exclusive networking events across two days.
