Powering Innovation For Smarter & Sustainable Cities

We are living in a time characterised by rapid urbanisation, climate change and digital disruption.  These global challenges also present exciting new business possibilities for those ready to seize them.  Innovation is a key enabler.  Technological and business innovation will allow firms and cities to grasp the opportunities whilst addressing these challenges, for profitable and sustainable development of the built environment.

Last year, we organised the inaugural International Built Environment Week (IBEW), where over 12,000 participants across the built environment value chain converged to share ideas and practices on transformation, both in the way we design, as well as in the way we build and operate.  IBEW 2019 was about “Transforming the way we build”.  At IBEW 2020, we will focus on innovation as a key enabler for transformation.  The theme for IBEW 2020 – ‘Innovation: Powering Sustainable and Smarter Cities’, echoes our aspiration to push the boundaries of innovation and build the smarter and more sustainable living spaces of tomorrow.

The event will showcase the latest innovations in sustainability, advanced construction, digitalisation and smart facilities management.  It is expected to bring together 14,000 delegates from across the globe.  With a specially-curated conference helmed by 100 expert speakers, four exhibitions showcasing 650 exhibitors and a host of networking events, IBEW2020 will be the perfect platform to exchange ideas and experiences, widen business networks and discover new collaboration opportunities.

Come, join us, as we work together to take the transformation of the built environment sector to the next level through innovation.  See you at IBEW 2020!
