Construction industry exhibition Ecobuild 2017 has launched with an emphasis on regeneration.
The 2017 event was launched at a House of Commons reception attended by over 100 construction industry leaders and chief executives.
Martin Hurn, brand director at Ecobuild, said: “Ecobuild 2017 event will bring together the largest collection of architects, contractors, specifiers and product manufacturers making it the perfect platform to collaborate and address the key issues of regeneration and its role in shaping the future of sustainability.
“Regeneration and future of sustainability are already critical issues for the industry, yet, following the EU Referendum result, the topics will, arguably, become even more pressing as UK businesses shoulder further responsibility to advance the agenda.”
A new central feature, Regeneration Drive, will feature a full-length boulevard covering city-themed attractions, such as a stadium, city hall, university campus and an energy grid. Additionally, the exhibition will feature CPD sessions on the key themes such as the housing crisis, infrastructure and public and private sector investment.
