London Build 2017

The leading construction event for London, takes place next month on October 25th & 26th at the Olympia London. The show brings together the entire construction industry from London and across the UK.


This is not your average construction event or expo. This is a Festival of Construction, which will be like a Who's Who of the construction, architecture, property and engineering industries and is for anyone who wants to have fun, be inspired, meet and do business with thousands of architects, developers, contractors, local councils, housing associations, house builders, suppliers, engineers and more.

We have created an agenda to tie in everyone's busy workloads, whether you can make it out of the office or off site for 2 hours or the whole two days, there is something for everyone.

London Build 2016 saw over 12,500 visitors and over 150 exhibitors, London Build 2017 is doubling in size and is set to be the must attend event of the year. Over 150+ high-level speakers will be presenting across multiple Summits: Future London Summit, London Build Sustainability Summit, BIM & Digital Construction Summit, Off-site Construction Summit, Fire Safety Summit, The Skills Hub and Interiors & Fit-out Workshops. This is your one stop shop to gain all of your CPD points and hear from all of the industry leaders in just two days.

Listen, learn and gain knowledge through the most comprehensive conference programme for construction, answering your questions to: London Transport Infrastructure Update, UK Fire Safety in the Wake of Grenfell Tower, Building the Digital Future for Construction, The Core Issues Driving Sustainability in London, The Demand for New Models of Delivery – The Future of Offsite Housing, Time to Focus on the Building as a Product, Crossrail 2 – What to expect?, Building 600 Units in 10 Months, Buildings Fit for the Future City of London, The UK Government and BIM, Heathrow Airport Limited – Expansion Plan and much more.

“Sustainability, like construction is a collaborative effort, no one person, business or product can do it on their own. Events just as Build London enable those in the industry to keep up to date in an age of accelerating change, opportunity and ability to deliver.”
Mat Roberts, Group Director of Sustainability Strategy, Interserve PLC

The show features exclusive contract and tender announcements from the largest projects within London from the residential, commercial and infrastructure sectors. The VIP lounge within the expo holds the Meet the Buyer sessions, for meetings with procurement teams from major contractors, developers and local councils to create new business opportunities. Companies attending include Morgan Sindall, Kier, Battersea Power Station, Quintain, Willmott Dixon Interiors, London Borough of Hounslow, London Borough of Wandsworth, Department for Health, London Underground and many more. These sessions are exclusive to VIPs and exhibitors.

“I am really excited about the up and coming London Build 2017. We are at London Olympia, which is the ‘Wembley’ of Exhibition Halls, and the two days are now the UK’s largest construction expo dedicated entirely to opportunities in London and the South of England.

The exhibition shall attract thousands of ‘movers & shakers’ from the UK’s construction industry from: contractors, developers, government, architects, solution providers and many, many more. There are numerous and various speakers, CPD Workshops, Business Meetings and exhibits to take in and sauntered around at your leisure, or of course, in a frantic busy-bee fashion!

So, basically, if you wish to studiously review technical advancements and talk one-to-one with experts in construction plant, or software, or network with all and sundry, discussing the multitude of business opportunities that will abound the exhibition halls, this is most definitely the event for you.

I am really looking forward to meeting and speaking with as many people as possible. It will be a vibrant, stimulating and of real value to its attendees. I really do encourage people not to miss out on what will be a memorable two days at London Olympia.”
