Digital construction tools to
improve delivery and operations
in the smart build environment

14 Sept 2022
About the

Digital Construction Summit

Welcome to the evolved, dynamic, and rebranded Digital Construction Summit, formerly the ME BIM Summit, which will take place in September 2022. A host of highly curated panel discussions, seminars, workshops, an interactive exhibition and networking activities will be put together to connect leading minds to examine the ongoing evolution of the construction industry in the middle east.

Over the last nine years, the ME BIM Summit has grown from strength to strength and as the digital transformation of the regional construction industry continues to gather pace, the scope of the event has grown beyond BIM and embraced all aspects of the digital construction journey.

In the wake of the pandemic, construction firms have awoken to the true power of digitalisation and are now heavily investing in technology to speed up their transformations into industry powerhouses of the future. We want to facilitate and energise this conversation, to help create a better, more inclusive, and adaptive smarter construction eco-system.

Our

Mission

Our mission as the media arm of the industry is to continue the education, process and support of digitisation by creating a network filled with informative content and knowledge.

Equipping the

Future Leaders

We want to connect the minds from aspiring students all the way to the leaders in position today and to equip the decision makers of tomorrow with how all the digital tools available will help the built environment.

To all of our patrons
