Over 2000 construction professionals from across the industry registered for our first-ever two-day digital conference, The Construction Leaders' Summit: The Digital Future.
The Summit aimed to bring together government and industry experts to discuss the political, legal and technological drivers for change as well as the impact of the pandemic. The event gained an incredible reaction and response over two days. Here are our key takeaways.
