BUILTWORLD Contest selects 25 finalists at Light + Building 2020

The 25 most innovative companies in the field of construction and building technologies (ConTech) have been named and are practically on their way to participate in the finals and exhibition at Light + Building in March 2020. The renowned international jury of the Construction Innovation Contest at the end of October selected the startups and innovation companies out of 50 applicants. Their business ideas and solutions are considered to have the potential to revolutionise the construction and real estate industries.

On 23 and 24 October the Construction Innovation prepitch with 50 innovative ConTech startups from all over the world took place in the halls of Messe Frankfurt. “All solutions have the potential to revolutionise the construction and real estate industries”, said Builtworld founder Wolfgang Moderegger at the end of the two-day jury session. Builtworld is the leading innovation ecosystem of companies and experts from the construction and real estate industries.

The 50 prepitch participants – the best from originally 350 applicants worldwide – presented their solutions and concepts for the built world of tomorrow: new materials, equipment and technological solutions in the categories of Applications in Engineering & Project Management, Procurement & Construction, Building Technologies, Building Materials & Systems, and Construction Machines & Equipment.

The prepitch jury has now named the 25 best, who will present themselves exclusively to the international trades at Light + Building (8 to 13 March 2020) in Frankfurt am Main. Iris Jeglitza-Moshage, member of the Board of Management of Messe Frankfurt, was impressed by the professional appearance of all 50 prepitch participants: “What announced itself to be a small, fine incubator for construction and innovation in the exhibition halls over the past two days will be seen brilliantly at Light + Building in March: The real estate industry and building services engineering point the way to the future”.

25 finalists exclusively at Light + Building 2020
The 25 finalists include ConTech startups and companies from America (Argentina, Canada, USA), Asia (Singapore), the Middle East (Israel), and Europe (Belgium, Germany, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland and Switzerland). Builtworld and its partner Messe Frankfurt will welcome them as fianlists and exhibitors in the Builtworld Innovation Forum by Light + Building 2020. In this way, innovative startups and technology companies will be able to present their solutions to more than 220,000 industry experts at Light + Building in Frankfurt am Main.

International jury of the industry’s big names
In order to identify the promising ideas and products for building the future, some of the best-known established companies took part in the jury. The jurors from the real estate industry included experts from CA Immobilien, CBRE, Commerz Real, Hines, Patrizia and Vonovia. Experts of Strabag and Vinci judged from the construction industry. Experts also came to the exhibition centre from building materials companies such as Cemex, Saint Gobain and Wienerberger as well as from construction machinery manufacturers Doka and Palfinger. Among the building
technology experts were Siemens and PwC, who provided advice on infrastructure projects. The participants from their respective fields of competence ensured that the 50 business models and the resulting marketability were comprehensively evaluated.

Builtworld and Messe Frankfurt promote innovative solutions
As the organiser of leading international trade fairs for modern building technology, Messe Frankfurt offers experts from the building planning, construction and real estate industries a further information component for the brokerage of innovations, contacts and new business: the exclusive combination of the building technology industry and trades with the “Property Technology” innovation field – startups, project developers and investors in the real estate business. For this purpose, the Frankfurt trade fair organiser cooperates with Builtworld in the focus group “Building Technology”. The Munich-based company operates the leading innovation ecosystem of companies and experts from the construction and real estate industry with the aim of actively shaping the built world of tomorrow – from planning, building and managing to investment, financing and marketing real estate and projects.

Partner for building technology worldwide
With 28 trade fairs for building technology, Messe Frankfurt is the first choice partner for manufacturers concerned and the visitor industries worldwide, especially for experts in the residential and real estate industries. The forecasts of the United Nations for increasing population growth and the urge for urbanisation already show today how important the planning of the “built world” is in times of resources shortage and climate change: by 2050, the majority of people will already be living in megacities that continue to grow and are emerging. This means that water, air, heat, light, safety, security and comfort must be guaranteed.
