Futurebuild postponed to March 2022

Latest News Tue, Nov 24, 2020 9:44 AM

Futurebuild 2021 has been postponed to March 2021 to allow organisers to "deliver an event where the built environment industry can connect in the most effective way".

Following consultation with our community, we have decided that the event that was due to run on March 2 to 4, 2021 will now go ahead from March 1 to 3, 2022 at the ExCeL London.

The event will elevate innovation, showcasing the products, solutions and ideas that will deliver the transformational change needed to address climate change.

The 2022 event will be laser focused on the most pressing industry issues, which were identified based on feedback from previous audiences. The event’s six spotlights and Arena programme will cover the fundamental issues currently facing the built environment industry — digital impact, whole house retrofit, circular materials, district energy, future installer and intelligent buildings.

To continue to offer a platform for the built environment industry to connect, Futurebuild will host a range of both physical and digital events in the lead up to 2022, putting a spotlight on the key issues the industry currently faces and present game changing solutions.

“We know that manufacturers and specifiers come to Futurebuild for a purpose — to showcase, see and purchase the products they can use to make a real difference,” explained Martin Hurn, event director of Futurebuild. “We want to do what is best for our community, and our planet, and we know how important it still is for us to connect and continue to foster key relationships. We’ve consulted our exhibitors, attendees and our team, and the community feels that Futurebuild will best serve its purpose if it goes ahead in 2022.”

Futurebuild will launch its digital offering Game Changers LIVE series, starting in December, to provide more opportunities to engage with industry influencers and manufacturers about current issues and innovation. This event will connect innovative brands with forward-thinking specifiers to cover trends such as clean energy, digital twin and circular materials.

“The pandemic won’t pause our progress,” continued Hurn. “We’re taking this challenge as an opportunity to provide more support to the industry. Our regular webinar panels and digital programme offers the community practical advice and opportunities to connect so that they can start implementing the changes needed to address climate change now.”

This decision has been made following consultation with the construction industry and due to the ongoing unforeseeable, unavoidable and unprecedented global scope of the Coronavirus pandemic. This has led to the Government implementing ongoing measures to maintain social distancing and reversing its decision to allow live events to run from 1 October 2020, further contributing to the continuing Force Majeure situation.

Futurebuild provides a platform for industry to come together, connect with people from across the entire supply chain and find the products and solutions needed to address the climate crisis. For more information about the show and its full portfolio, visit www.Futurebuild.co.uk.
