STARTEGIC PARTNER EVENT: Construction Leader’ Summit

April 21 @ 9:00 am - April 28 @ 5:00 pm

The construction industry is continuously evolving. The need to adapt and embrace new working practices and technologies is crucial in building a better and more sustainable future. The Construction Leaders’ Summit: Building for the Future is a two-day online event for anyone involved in the design, supply and construction of the built environment, looking to learn about and discuss the future of construction and the changes that lie ahead.

At NBS, we’re committed to providing the construction industry with the tools and resources needed to help them build a better and more sustainable future. As part of this commitment, we’re delighted to announce our next online conference, The Construction Leaders’ Summit: Building for the Future, taking place on Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 April, 9 am to 1 pm (BST).

The event will bring together leading figures from the construction industry and the government, who will focus on the digital transformation of the industry and building a more sustainable future. We will explore the key industry and regulatory changes and the economic landscape, including the impact.

We believe that the industry needs to keep pushing forward on its digital journey to become more sustainable, so we’re putting this event on at no cost to the attendees.
