innovation for the construction site of the future

What is Futureworx?

FUTUREWORX  is a new and exclusive event driven by the CONSTRUCTION EQUIPMENT ASSOCIATION and our PLANTWORX delivery team. It is a two-day combination of VIP visits, conference speakers, presentations, technology exhibits and a networking evening event.

The first FUTUREWORX will address three themes presenting key challenges and opportunities for the construction industry i.e.

Decarbonisation

the Net Zero challenge

Data

driving change and productivity

The human interface

with automation, autonomy and AI

FUTUREWORX seeks to identify, demonstrate and discuss the technology and innovation that will drive sustainability and productivity on the construction site of 2030 and beyond. 

Our aim is, “To bring together senior professionals with the want and need with those that have the new and innovative ways of delivering the solutions”.

FUTUREWORX is supported by, and developed in consultation with, the following organisations;

Hosted at the East of England Arena & Events Centre, Oundle Road, Alwalton, Peterborough.

Who will be there?

ATTENDEES: the goal of the event is to attract the participation of invited visitors who are….

  • senior executives/directors, strategic planners and policy setters.
  • innovators, thought leaders and other curious professionals.
  • major contractors.
  • leading plant-hire companies.
  • academia, project planners and specifiers.
  • the experts who can inform, challenge and debate the ever-nearing future.
  • key influencers nominated by our partner organisations.

Exhibitor Opportunities

There are several opportunities to showcase your technology as part of FUTUREWORX.

“Pop Up” Exhibit Space

Ideal for bringing along your own exhibition unit, display machines or products – without the extra cost of additional overnight stays and shell schemes. Space is available within the Atrium at the venue and in the adjacent outside Plaza display area. Your exhibit must fit the profile within the “3 themes” of the event – promoting a product or technology that could become one of the “must haves” for construction sites in 2030.

The Briefing Room

The Room is available to book (in one-hour time slots) for workshops of up to 30 people for presentation and briefing purposes. Subject to demand, a second Briefing Room may be commissioned. Audio visual equipment will be available. Please note supporting organisations may have priority in bookings.

Demonstrations

The outside, hard standing, Plaza area is suitable for above ground working demonstrations as well as static displays. Demonstrations must comply with relevant health and safety requirements.

The Digital Den

Located in the Peterborough Suite, the area will be styled to showcase suppliers wishing to present their software and digital solutions to attendees. There will be up to 15 display pods available. Your presentation must fit the profile set out in the “3 themes” of the event.
