Last chance to avoid missing out on this year’s Building Tech Live

With only hours left until this year’s Building Tech Live sponsored by Gooee and Aurora kicks off, lighting industry professionals still undecided about making the journey will want to take a look at the latest announcements about what’s on at the show at Birmingham’s NEC between 9-11 October, before they miss out on the industry’s biggest event of the year.

Imagine having a house built by robots. Sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie, but autonomous robots are helping to speed up construction, and you can learn all about them at this year’s Building Tech Live.

EksoWorks is demoing the latest in exoskeleton technology in the form of Ekso ZeroG and the EksoVest, providing 5 – 15lb lift assist and turning heavy tools weightless; ECA is giving visitors a glimpse of the potential applications of VR and AR in electrotechnical and engineering sectors; and the Gooee Internet of Things (IoT) Arena is revealing the latest in connected lighting developments with Bright Green Connect.

Building Tech Live forms part of UK Construction Week (UKCW), the construction industry’s largest event. 35,000 visitors are expected through the doors of Birmingham’s NEC, taking advantage of more than 650 exhibitors, 10,000 products, 350 speakers, 300 hours of talks, 35 different CPD sessions and 9 industry-specific shows.

Also taking place is the Role Model of the Year announcement, the Voltimum Smart Solution Awards (hosted by BBC Breakfast presenter and journalist Steph McGovern), Coventry University’s site manager construction simulator, the IEMA sustainable construction conference, the Future of Construction Hub, single-use plastic crackdown with free top up water stations and live rockaoke at the Beer Festival, sponsored by Velux.

Visitors will leave with their questions answered, needs covered and knowledge updated.

For the last chance to attend, tickets are still available from and allow access to all nine UKCW shows: Build Show; Energy 2018; Timber Expo; Surface and Materials Show; Building Tech Live; HVAC 2018; Civils Expo; Plant and Machinery Live and Grand Designs Live.

Show news and updates will be posted live throughout the event on the website and Twitter @BuildTech Live or using the hashtag #BuilingTech2018.
