THE DIGITAL BUILT ENVIRONMENT THEATRE

The Digital Built Environment theatre offers two days of exclusive content with presentations and workshops from an international line up of speakers. 

Last year's line up included the Infrastructure Projects Authority's Head of Digital Construction; Alex Lubbock, Estonia's Head of Digital Construction; Risto Vahenurm, and Director of Construction Products Europe; Oscar Nieto as well as many more.

Our full day programme is brought to you by industry experts at The IET, BRE, and BIM4M2 with support from Wienerberger. Each session will look to explore the digitisation of the built environment with a specific focus on the digitisation of the supply chain.

Sessions will take place at our DBE Theatre within the main exhibition hall and are free to attend provided you register in advance.
