Diversified Communications announced the addition of Digital Construction Week to their building, construction and technology portfolio of events. Digital Construction Week is the United Kingdom’s leading tradeshow dedicated to digital construction, engineering, design, manufacturing and operation.
This event complements Diversified’s industry leading event portfolio with market reach across four countries: GEO Business in London, Commercial UAV Expo Europe in Amsterdam, DesignBUILD in Sydney, and in the U.S., AEC Next Technology Expo & Conference and SPAR 3D in Anaheim, International LiDAR Mapping Forum in Denver, and Commercial UAV Expo Americas in Las Vegas.
“These synergies, in addition to our shared values and commitment to our customers through a long-term vision and industry expertise, make this a perfect fit,” says Diversified’s President and CEO Theodore Wirth. “We are very pleased to welcome the event’s co-founders, Luke Collings and Oliver Hughes, and their talented show team to our growing U.K. division under Managing Director Carsten Holm.”
Digital Construction Week is a growing event. Known for its comprehensive, high-quality seminar, conference program and qualified attendees, the most recent fourth edition, held at ExCeL in London on Oct. 16-17 was the most successful to date. Doubling its 2017 attendance, it attracted 6,500 visitors, 200 exhibitors and 250 speakers, presenting across six stages with a dedicated conference stream. Holm says “having watched the evolving success of Digital Construction Week ever since Luke and Ollie launched it in 2015, we are proud to bring it into Diversified; and we are excited to provide the additional resources and support that will allow the team to continue to expand the event to further support the professionals and businesses within this growing and evolving industry.”
Including recent acquisitions and a series of new launches, Diversified continues to strengthen its position as one of the most successful tradeshow organizers in the U.K. The award-winning U.K. division of Diversified Communications now employs more than 110 staff members and has more than doubled in size over the past three years. The next Digital Construction Week takes place at ExCeL London on Oct. 17-18, 2019.
