What is it?

Construction Meetup is an exclusive meetings and collaboration event bringing together the entire construction industry. Connect with both new and established contacts in a friendly and relaxed environment to share best practice, identify solutions for meeting the industry’s toughest challenges and unearth some of the most innovative and impressive tech-led solution providers on the market.

Construction News has identified a unique opportunity to come together, share ideas and explore innovative and tech-led products and services that will help the entire industry overcome challenges such meeting net zero carbon targets, improving health and safety onsite, driving productivity and adopting smarter and more modern methods of construction.  All this is set against a challenging backdrop of material shortages, attracting the next generation of talent and skills and rising inflation. It can be tough out there!

How does it work?

Matching clients, contractors and subcontractors with selected solution providers allows the most innovative products and services to be showcased and introduced via 15-minute in-person meetings and our exclusive solution provider showcase. In addition, the meetup will allow plenty of time for you to arrange additional meetings with your peers, take part in lively table talks and learn from thought-provoking presentations and debates.

Why Construction Meetup?

We’ve consulted with top tier clients, contractors and subcontractors including supply chain leaders, procurement directors and construction directors to gauge appetite and help develop our first Construction Meetup providing the perfect platform to:

  • Source new clients and identify innovative supply chain partners
  • Participate in peer-to-peer discussions and solution provider table talks
  • Access issue led content and learning

Covid-19 and Brexit has had a huge effect on the construction industry with unprecedented impacts on supply and demand.  It has also forced both buyers and suppliers to look at different ways to communicate and do business, leading to a rise in both physical and online meeting events and the launch of this year’s Construction Meetup.
