UKCW NEC 1st - 3rd Oct 2024
UK Construction Week (UKCW) is a multi-award winning show fully focused on the built environment sector. Save the date or enquire to book your stand space now.



A host of new features, interactive demos, international pavilions from across the globe are being planned by the organisers of the UK’s largest event for the built environment, UK Construction Week (UKCW), which makes a welcome return to the NEC from 1-3 Oct 2024.

The multi award-winning show will most likely be similar to the London event in May that saw the debut of a new Live Demo Theatre; Skills and Training Hub; a construction-specific Recruitment Zone; new C-Suite Summits; a host of international exhibitors housed in pavilions from India, China, Turkey, Italy, Spain, Germany and France.

UKCW Birmingham is once again co-located with Concrete Expo and The Offsite Show, as well as the UK’s premier event for the self-build sector, Grand Designs Live.

New features that have been unveiled for the London event that may well be also at the NEC event include:

  • Live Demo Theatre - a showcase of the latest construction products, techniques and innovations from across the world, the Demo Theatre will bring them to life in front of a live audience of industry professionals looking to be ahead of the curve.
  • C-suite Summits - an exclusive new area for the sector’s top decision makers, the C-suite Summits will see top execs offering their invaluable insights and forecasts to their peers. The new zone will also be a top-level networking forum for dialogue and debate.
  • Skills and Training Hub - a first-time collaboration with the CITB (Construction Industry Training Board), the new hub will address the Skills Shortage head-on with a three-day programme featuring a myriad talks and workshops to support skills development within the industry and ultimately, build better.
  • Careers and Recruitment Zone - another new area created in response to exhibitor and visitor feedback, this will not only be a focal point for all those working in recruitment, or simply looking for that next new role. Visitors will have face to face access to specialist recruiters from the construction sector, with discreet interview rooms allowing candidates to have onsite consultations.
  • Construction Sport Gumball Rally - spearheaded by UKCW regulars Construction Sport, a charity which supports construction workers’ mental and physical health through sport, the Gumball Rally will see teams of drivers navigate their way across the UK, stopping off at famous infrastructure projects - raising funds along the way. Two rallies will take place in 2024, each in the week prior to the UK Construction Week shows in London (May) and Birmingham (October). More details will follow in the coming months.
  • International Pavilions - the largest international representation of manufacturers to date at any UK construction event. Businesses from India, China, Turkey, Italy, Spain, Germany and France will take centre stage at UK Construction Week London, bringing together myriad innovations from across the world.


The NEC was the birthplace of UK Construction Week in 2015 and the trade show has grown to become the UK's largest built environment event. Details on the Birmingham programme of events and speakers will be announced in due course, but exhibition space is already filling up - to enquire for your business (make sure you give your BMF Member Number), contact [email protected].
