Futurebuild offers the opportunity to Take a Stand

This year’s Futurebuild Expo will be happening from 7-9 March at London’s ExCeL. As usual, this year’s show will provide a stage for inspiring ideas, innovative solutions and knowledge sharing to drive sustainable construction and help reach the goal of net zero.

The free ticket to the show will give access to over 400 brands, never-before-seen innovations, a world-class conference programme and inspirational seminar content curated by over 90 industry partners.

Stressing this year’s slogan of ‘Taking a Stand’, organisers Easyfairs declared: “Futurebuild is taking a stand for a better built environment and we want you to join us. By getting involved you will drive positive change for your industry, whilst connecting with like-minded people and the innovations that will propel the industry towards a more sustainable future.”

Futurebuild cultivates a collaborative, knowledge-sharing culture through eight show sections across the exhibition. The show sections will provide visitors with innovative solutions that are addressing the biggest challenges facing the built environment.

The Materials section

The Materials section addresses the needs of visitors in search of solutions and innovations in material efficiency. The challenge is to balance the environment crisis against the needs of the population for more buildings and infrastructure. By switching to greener materials that go into construction and improving efficiency, lifetime emissions for buildings can be slashed 44% by 2050.

Visit to find the very latest advances and expertise in materials used in the structure of buildings, that will help reduce the lifetime carbon footprint, enabling specifiers to make the best possible material choices.

The Interiors section

The Interiors section will be the leading destination to find manufacturers across all areas of commercial and domestic interiors – including healthy buildings, kitchens, bathrooms, washrooms, surfaces, flooring, lighting, appliances and technology.

The section will provide visitors with the opportunity to network with like-minded professionals involved in housebuilding, commercial fit-out, student accommodation, social housing and the public sector.

The Offsite section

Offsite at Futurebuild provides the opportunity to meet and network with likeminded offsite construction professionals who are making significant change within this fast-growing sector.Visit to find a showcase of the most innovative offsite products, materials, solutions and processes to help drive real change. The Offsite section will showcase the latest advances and innovations within offsite construction, such as volumetric systems, panelised, pod and prefabricated MEP solutions from right across the globe.

The Retrofit section

The Whole House Retrofit Zone, in partnership with The Retrofit Academy CIC, has expanded this year and will return to Futurebuild 2023 as the Retrofit section.

With 27 million domestic buildings in the UK, the majority of which require significant energy efficiency improvements, it has been calculated by the UK Green Building Council that 1.8 homes per minute will need to be retrofitted to deliver the UK Government’s commitment to net zero by 2050.

Visit to find a showcase of the best solutions, technologies and services that together can unite and strengthen the delivery of whole house retrofit at scale.

Sustainable Infrastructure section

The Sustainable Infrastructure section has been created to meet the needs of thousands of visitors and will include all aspects of infrastructure, including green, blue, grey and social infrastructure solutions.

The Sustainable Infrastructure section will explore all aspects of the city and surrounding city influences, acknowledging that increasing percentages of the population will live in urban areas and so these must be places that work for people.

The Energy section

The Energy section within Futurebuild unites all professionals engaged in designing, specifying, supplying and installing services and products involving energy production and use.Visit to find the latest technologies and solutions for decarbonisation of heat and the delivery of a smart and flexible energy system.

The Buildings section

The Buildings section of Futurebuild covers all aspects of building, including new build, refurb and retrofit across domestic and commercial projects. It will showcase manufacturers and suppliers from across a wide spectrum of building products, including roofing, claddings, renders and bricks, insulation and glazing.

Whether you’re an architect, specifier, building service engineer or local authority representative, you will find the latest building technology, legislation and products relevant to you.

The Digital Stage

The rapid acceleration of digital technology has transformed the construction industry. More innovation, more data and more technical skills now exist than ever before. The way we design, build and operate our built assets has dramatically changed – and we don’t see it stopping anytime soon.

Technology has become increasingly integral to every aspect of our lives as more systems become automated, digitalised and connected. Smart technology has not only become reality but normality, with so many new and groundbreaking technologies emerging every day.

The Digital Stage at Futurebuild will examine the process, outcomes and benefits that digital construction provides during each stage of the full lifecycle of a built asset from conception to operation.

The whole seminar programme poses the question: what will you take a stand for? Futurebuild is taking a stand for a better built environment and is urging companies and professionals throughout the industry to make a similar commitment by ‘taking a stand’ on an issue they passionately believe will help propel the industry towards a more sustainable future.
