London Build Announces Speakers

2019 will see London Build into its fifth year, and with it the most sensational line-up of speakers at any construction show in history!

London Build will feature CPD accredited sessions across eight different summits: Future London, Sustainability, BIM & Digital Construction, Fire Safety, Infrastructure, Innovation, London Design, Interiors & Fit-out, and the brand new BIM & Geospatial Clinic.

In this new age of sustainability, alongside London’s ever-growing housing and infrastructure developments, our panels and talks will be digging deep into London’s construction goals and future, as well as hard-hitting topics affecting the industry in 2019. We’re tackling mental health in construction, elevating the voices of women in construction, and helping to create a future of inclusive and diverse workforces. We’ll also be diving into the ongoing questions around the housing crisis, and debating a Sustainable Built Environment.

We’ve listed some of the fantastic London Build speakers below, but with more exciting names to be announced in the lead up to the event – including top contractors, architecture practices, government bodies, and housing authorities, you’ll be spoiled for choice with our 2019 agenda.
