Digital Construction North launched by Digital Construction Week

The team behind Digital Construction Week (DCW) is delighted to announce the launch of Digital Construction North, an intimate one-day event that brings together Architecture, Engineering, Construction, and Operations (AECO) decision-makers from across the north of the UK. The free-to-attend expo will launch at Manchester Central on 13 November 2024.

Digital Construction North promises a flavour of Digital Construction Week in a fresh one-day format and with new content that can’t be accessed elsewhere. This includes an exclusive keynote, hands-on demonstrations, launches, live podcast recordings and more.

Event Director, Ollie Hughes, explains: “We currently see more international visitors attending Digital Construction Week than we do from the North of the UK. We know that travel and time is a huge commitment, so we’re excited to bring you a showcase of AECO innovation that’s accessible right on your doorstep.

“With the North’s focus on levelling-up, construction in the region is thriving with some incredible projects underway. We’re really excited to be part of this by offering a platform for the industry to showcase innovation, get together and share ideas,” he concludes.

Mark Taylor, Associate Director of Digital Construction at Buro Happold and a member of the steering group, says: “The North of England boasts a vibrant ecosystem of SMEs and start-ups, where digital transformation is pivotal for business growth and innovation.”

“It’s really exciting to see Digital Construction Week, an advocate for AECO industry transformation, coming to the North putting a spotlight on the region’s commitment to embracing digital.”

Join us at the North’s newest unmissable AECO event

There will be plenty of opportunities to make new connections, with a focus on bringing the built environment community in the North together to network and share ideas.

Northern AECO communities and groups are encouraged to host meetups and special events around the show. More information on how to do so will be shared soon.

“There is a lot of great work being done, not just in the North, but by those in the North, and an initiative like Digital Construction North would play a great part in showcasing this,” begins Dr Melanie Robinson, Associate at BIM Academy, and another member of the steering group.

“With the news constantly reminding us of skills shortages, an event like Digital Construction North will help demonstrate that there are opportunities for growth across the region, and potentially attract new talent from neighbouring sectors.

“I’m really excited to represent the Northeast, not just in my professional capacity, but also as regional lead for Women in BIM,” she concludes.

Due to venue capacity at Manchester Central, tickets for Digital Construction North will be limited.
