Chicago Build is set to feature 200-plus speakers across 12 Summits and AIA/CES approved workshops, covering topics relating to: the future of construction, BIM and digital construction, architecture, building materials, real estate, sustainability and government contracts. Chicago Build will also feature an exhibition attended by more than10,000 construction, architecture and real estate professionals.

As part of its commitment to equality and diversity, Chicago Build will host one of the US’s largest-ever meetings of Women in Construction, organized in association with the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC), plus a Diversity in Construction networking event in association with the Chicago Minority Supplier Development Council (Chicago MSDC) and the LGBT Chamber of Commerce of Illinois.

Facilitating networking and business relationship building is at the heart of Chicago Build and its organizers have announced that there will be a range of themed music and sports networking bars, as well as a wide range of other networking activities.

“The response to Chicago Build has been overwhelming. Chicago Build is filling a gap in the market for a major annual construction show in Chicago and we believe McCormick Place, the largest venue in the USA, is the perfect location for such an event,” an Oliver Kinross representative said.
