Futurebuild stands out as one of the leading global events charting the future of ecological design, sustainable construction and environmental preservation – sectors that have been rapidly growing in scope and importance. Building a safer, greener future has never been more urgent so this annual trade fair has been a pivotal gathering since its inception in 2005. 

As a procurement platform, the event showcases a wealth of sustainable construction products. From new builds to refurbishments, residential to commercial projects, the exhibition encapsulates the entire spectrum of sustainable construction, embodying a commitment to a greener and more sustainable built environment. The exhibition floors are divided into eight main segments: 

  • Materials

Situated at ExCeL London, Futurebuild has seamlessly earned its reputation as a paramount event in the realm of sustainability. The industry's most important names consistently choose Futurebuild as their go-to marketing avenue not just as a way to perform market research, but also to grow their professional networks. What further makes Futurebuild appealing is the addition of an excellent support programme that delivers a lot of knowledge. The free conference and seminar sessions are the best way to get a good grip of what’s happening right now in construction and sustainability practices, while learning practical skills. 

Futurebuild is more than just an exhibition – it’s an idea; it’s an engine for transformation. It forges a collective space where innovative ideas are shown, solutions emerge and knowledge sharing is essential, especially when it comes to reaching the goal of net zero emissions. Futurebuild pulls in crucial players across the entire supply chain – architects, manufacturers, consultants, contractors – to a successful outcome for everyone involved. 

Who Are You Going to Meet? 

Futurebuild appeals to a wide-ranging audience, ensuring that you as the exhibitor will have a productive time at the trade fair. Architects and designers, accounting for a substantial 26% of the attendees, are the biggest professional group to attend the trade fair. They are then followed by house builders & developers (21%), contractors & surveyors (12%), manufacturing representatives (9%), consultants (6%), engineers (5%) and local authorities and housing organisations (4%). You have professionals in all links across the processing line at various positions of power. 

This is great news for exhibitors, who stand to diversify their revenue stream during the fair. You definitely meet with interested buyers as roughly 75% of visitors attend Futurebuild to grasp the latest innovations and breakthroughs, which then leads to qualified sales leads and direct orders. What’s even better is the quality of visitors that frequent the fair. Futurebuild succeeds in attracting the upper echelons of built environment professionals. Close to 82% of the AJ Top 100 Architects find themselves drawn to the event, revealing just how relevant the trade fair is within the wider architecture industry. Equally noteworthy, 84% of Building's Top 50 engineers honour the event with their presence, indicating the event's pivotal role in the engineering discourse.

When it comes to exhibitors, you'll showcase side by side with Hemspam, Longeliffe, SSAB, Sumec, Offsite Solutions, CCP, EDGE, Sisaltech and Anhydritec.

Additional Value of Attending 

It’s also important to note that each product area has its own excellent mini-programme that keeps the focus on what’s absolutely relevant for trade visitors. Let’s take the Materials area, for example. In addition to the comprehensive overview of modern, sustainable construction materials, visitors can also benefit from excellent sessions. Sessions explore the topics of green materials and go in depth on specific products. The overarching storyline has concerns itself with the ambitious goal of reducing lifetime emissions for buildings by 44 per cent by 2050.

In this zone, you’ll hear from professionals working for MPA Concrete Centre, MPA Precast, Timber Development Association, AECOM, ASBP, iStructE and ACAN. You can expect this diversity and richness of programming in each of the eight zones –further proof that Futurebuild is a benchmark moment for the industry. 

But, of course, the conference is the big selling point when it comes to knowledge sharing. Speakers don’t only deliver information and facts, but lead conversations on sensitive subjects and offer practical advice in regards to how to inspire social change.
