One of Riyadh’s most sought-after industry events, the Construction Technology Festival KSA (CTF), is back for its second edition. The event will showcase how digitalisation and advanced technologies are shaping the construction and real estate industries. It will be held at Movenpick Hotel & Residences Riyadh on 14th and 15th December 2022.
Co-organised by the Saudi Contractors Authority, CTF expects more than 500 attendees. Global leaders in architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) will share their insights and provide digital solutions that help design, build, and handover assets faster and more efficiently whilst focusing on better sustainability.
More than 60 expert speakers from leading organisations globally will discuss changing industry practices, including digital transformation, virtual construction, modern methods of construction, ways to decarbonise the built environment, shifting to cloud, and many more engaging topics. Real experiences in the implementation of more than 10 digital disciplines will be revealed from Internet of Things (IOT) to Machine Learning and the Metaverse.
For the first time, CTF will be co-located with The Contracting Excellence Awards, an SCA initiative to recognise the best examples of local contracting industry innovation, best practice and excellence. Networking with the SCA’s Contracting Excellence Awards elite shortlist will allow attendees to forge new relationships with the top players in the sector.
CTF KSA is organised by Ventures Connect, a partnership between b2b Connect and Ventures Middle East, two businesses committed to empowering companies across the MENA region while enabling critical connections with key stakeholders and decision-makers across various industries.
Why attend CTF?
CTF’s 2022 theme is embracing innovation and sustainability within the built environment. Rapid technological developments are changing the way construction companies work, and how projects are delivered and handed over. Digitalisation is paving the way for Construction 4.0, and the event honours individuals, organisations and projects that have embraced change. Optimisation, efficiency, and cost control play a key role in the adoption of digital technologies, and CTF is where key stakeholders and leaders can discuss strategies and solutions to bring greater efficiency to the industry.
“As the Festival has grown in popularity, we wanted its focus to better scale technology across the entire value chain, from early-stage design to operating a building or community more efficiently,” said Katie Briggs, Show Director, Construction Technology Festival, and Partner, b2b Connect.
Attendees can expect to explore pressing industry topics as over 1,000 speakers take to the stage, including members of prestigious organisations such as The Red Sea Development Company, Diriyah Gate Development Authority, NEOM, Nesma & Partners Contracting Co., Shomoul Holding Company, AMAALA, Royal Commission of Al Ula, National Housing Committee, SEVEN, Al Saedan for Development, ROSHN, Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs and Housing, Al Bawani, Kabbani Group, and more as part of the lineup.
