Digital Construction Week is a bastion of collaboration with various thought leaders coming together to drive a message across the two days of talks, seminars and workshops.

For the past 4 years FMC have been in attendance and this year sees us continue our own passion for driving change through the industry by way of connecting the most innovative businesses with the right individuals.

In 2016 we all talked BIM, in 2017 VR, 2018 saw AR and in 2019 we’ve seen significant inroads into the application of AI and Machine Learning. We expect much of the rhetoric across the 2 days to focus on the latest technological innovations and how it is being applied to real world situations.

While we recommend you taking the chance to simply walk around and sit at as many of the talks as you can, below we’ve highlighted some that have caught our eye:

While we appreciate that none of you are there to speak with Recruiters, we’ll be showcasing our latest European Remuneration report which has helped over 50% of the exhibitors plan their talent strategy for 2020. My colleague Gareth & I will be in attendance and would be happy to grab a coffee (or croissant) and explore how we could partner with you.
