Construction Technology Festival 2022 addresses 500+ guests at Address Hotel

Sessions with 150+ speakers, the launch of PropTech Festival and the ConTech Awards were among the Festival’s many highlights.

The fifth Construction Technology Festival (CTF) successfully concluded on June 8. The renowned event showcasing digitalisation and sustainability welcomed over 500 attendees, including industry experts, dignitaries, and AEC (Architecture, Engineering, Construction) leaders.

Held at The Address Hotel, Dubai Marina on the 7th and 8th of June, attendees enjoyed networking and opportunities to collaborate with like-minded professionals. The Construction Technology Festival also hosted the first PropTech Festival to bring together the entire value chain to focus on how technology can be better scaled across each discipline. Highlighting digital asset management, property management, facility and community management, attendees learned about how digital innovations can increase asset value, reduce operational costs and deliver better experiences for end-users.

On the last day of the festival, Katie Briggs, Show Director at Construction Technology Festival and Partner at b2b Connect, said, “It was a delight to host, introduce and interact with the AEC industry’s digital advocates. CTF is firmly establishing itself as the region’s annual platform to help the industry collaborate in delivering assets faster, greener and more cost-efficiently’’.

The Festival took a deep dive into 10+ digital disciplines, including Digital Twins, Internet Of Things (IoT), Drones, Machine Learning, the Metaverse, Gamification, ERP implementation and many more.
