UK Construction Week Birmingham

Where it all began

Birmingham, the Midlands, was the centre of the industrial revolution in the UK and the legacy of the city that built Great Britain continues with UK Construction Week.

The NEC in Birmingham was the birthplace of UK Construction Week in 2015 and the tradeshow has grown to become the UK's largest built environment event, held annually in the first week of October.

The halls of the NEC have been the key destination for the past 7 years for all in construction. There have been 1000s of international exhibitors showcasing 1000s of innovative products, materials and services and many more to come for our 100,000+ visitors.

UKCW is a catalyst for change in the sector as we gather the top speakers to panel our many seminar theatres to discuss and debates the issues affecting construction, and we believe this is where real change can happen.

The upcoming 2023 show will once again be a key destination for all in the sector. Co-located with Timber Expo, Grand Designs Live and Green Living Live.
