Digital Construction Week 2019

The construction industry continues to undergo transformative digital change and DCW 2019 will showcase this when it returns to London in October

We are experiencing one of the biggest periods of change in our industry, discussions about digital processes and technologies have moved from theoretical to real life. The UK Government’s £170m Construction Sector Deal and the launch of the £72m Construction Innovation Hub will help take the industry forward and represents a huge opportunity for you to help transform the sector and gain real competitive advantage.

DCW, taking place on 16-17 October at London ExCeL, aims to highlight these opportunities. Featuring 11 theatres (10 free-to-attend), 300 expert speakers, over 160 hours of content-rich talks, seminars and workshops, more than 180 industry-leading companies and a full two-day thought leadership conference, DCW is a “must-attend” for those wanting to get a first look at the latest innovations and cutting-edge technology shaping the future of this dynamic industry.


Meet with over 180 industry-leading companies including BAM, Bluebeam, Leica, Skanska, Procore, BIMObject and Autodesk who will be showcasing their latest technologies and providing the opportunity to get hands-on and test out their products. Expect to see robotics, AR, VR, AI and machine learning, laser scanning, drones and UAVs, smart materials, collaborative tools and much more.

The DCW Seminar Programme covers everything from BIM, Geospatial and Visualisation to Innovation, Business Transformation and Tech amongst other key themes. Full details of the programme can be found online at In addition to the extensive seminar programme is a series of features and fringe events that are not to be missed.

The Construction Innovation Hub is a brand new and exclusive theatre delivered in partnership with the recently launched Construction Innovation Hub. Visitors will explore how we can change the way buildings and infrastructure are designed, manufactured, integrated and connected within our built environment.

Exhibitors and partners will showcase their technologies ‘in the field’ on our replica construction site, The Onsite Arena. Visitors can get to grips with the latest technology linking from the office to the field. In between sessions head over to the site office and meet the Bluebeam team who will be running a series of hands on demos with the latest touch screens and Microsoft technologies.

Back by popular demand is the Drone Drag Racing, a much-loved spectacle at DCW. The competition is open to anyone who would like to have a go flying a mini drone. Secure a spot at the top of the ‘top gear’ style leader board to win a trophy at the end of day two. There is also plenty of opportunity to wind down and network during the DCW drinks reception held in the Nemetschek lounge at the end of day one.

The Start Up Zone returns once again and will feature a selection of the latest technologies and concepts with the potential to solve some of the industry’s biggest challenges. We’ll be working with our event partners to scour universities, R&D departments and tech start-ups to find those ideas with the biggest potential.


As well as the range of free content on offer, Digital Construction Week 2019 also boasts a full two day thought leadership conference targeted at senior level decision makers and influencers from across the industry.

With an unrivalled line up of the most innovative experts and thought leaders from across the built environment, the conference programme is designed to help you better understand the opportunities associated with innovation and technology and offer a look into the future of the AECO sector.
