The seventh edition of the Construction Technology ConFEX (CTF) concluded on 4 June, drawing more than 800 key stakeholders and industry professionals from around the globe.

This year's CTF UAE emphasised four main themes in the industry: climate and decarbonisation, wellbeing and social agenda, viability and competitive edge, and productivity and performance.

The event delved into essential steps for the industry to excel across these themes, emphasising the critical role of technology and digitalisation in achieving these goals efficiently and effectively. This aligns with the UAE's commitment to developing world-class infrastructure and promoting a greener, more sustainable future through innovation and collaboration.

“CTF UAE 2024 explored essential steps for industry excellence as it embraces increasingly sophisticated construction technology and digitalisation techniques,” said Katie Briggs, events director at b2b Connect. “Our skylines are becoming icons of progress, sustainability, and human ingenuity, and this would not be possible without the use of advanced technologies and digitalisation.”

A wide array of topics was covered, including sustainability, scaling up adoption, people and skills, PMIS, ERP, digital twins, BIM, cloud, AI, and more. Attendees gained in-depth knowledge and actionable strategies to navigate the industry’s evolving landscape, with insights from over 165 industry experts.

More than 800 participants, including project developers, contractors, consultants, industry experts, technology providers, startups, and key stakeholders from over 20 countries, gathered at CTF UAE to connect, collaborate, and explore new opportunities. The ConFEX served as a platform to foster meaningful partnerships and drive innovation within the construction technology ecosystem.
