"Network with London's key players leading the way in BIM, digital construction and innovation"



The London BIM & Digital Construction Summit is the leading event for all Architects, Construction Contractors, Developers, BIM Consultants, CAD/3D Visualiser’s and Architectural Technologists who are leading the way towards a more technologically aware London Construction industry.

Recent years have seen new regulations come into place for use of BIM, and a huge array of new technologies, including virtual reality, augmented reality and artificial intelligence. For any individual working on a project it is impossible to miss the impact that BIM & Digital Construction are having on your day to day job, as well as the impact it has on other construction companies in London.

This summit is created to allow you to learn and enhance the way you work, learning from industry experts, networking with other professional and discussing solutions in an open source environment that could only exist with the introduction of such revolutionary methods of working.



The BIM & Digital Construction Expo & Summit has 2 full days of dedicated CPD-accredited construction training content, focusing on the future of the sector, the impact that Level 2 BIM has had and that Level 3 will have, as well as real life case studies, demonstrating the challenges faced on current developments within London, and how these were overcome using a variety of new technologies.

One thing is clear, BIM & Digital Construction is still very much in its infancy, and will continue to develop over the coming years and decades. Certainly the introduction of virtual reality, augmented reality and artificial intelligence will bring in new practices to make work sites more safe and more efficient, some of which are still yet to be discovered. By attending this summit you will be in the same place as the pioneers of the construction industry. You may even be inspired to become a pioneer yourself. Register for a free ticket today.



Explore all key areas of BIM and Digital Construction with our FREE CPD Training Workshops and Interactive Conference Sessions. Sessions include: BIM Update, The Future of Digital Construction, Steps Towards BIM Level 3, Digital Construction and many more key topics discussed. The summit provides a vast array of knowledge and insight to ensure you are keeping your company moving forward with all the latest standards, insight and best practice in to BIM implementation and the digital construction revolution.


At the end of the day, stick around for the Open Mic BIM and Networking Party – Meet and Greet with senior delegates working in BIM and all things Digital Construction in a relaxed environment at the end of the day. Join your peers to build new relationships, develop your understanding of key areas, connect with some of the pioneers of the industry and most importantly socialise and unwind after a full day of innovative sessions and features.



While visiting London Build, take some time to stop by t​​​​​​he VR & Digital Construction Hub and Demo Area. Immerse yourself in the future of the construction industry, with a wide variety of VR and Digital Construction showcases, allowing you to step into a new reality. Many of the zone sponsors and exhibitors will be running competitions over the two days, with huge prizes to be won including the VR headsets, a trip for 2 to Europe, Michelin Star dinners and much more.
