These days everybody is talking about the digital transition. The Belgian Construction Confederation's BouwForum/ForumConstruction 2017, which traditionally kicks off BATIBOUW, officially heralded the dawn of the digital era, presented the concept of digitisation in the construction industry and highlighted the challenges posed by the increasing use of digital technologies.
With the Digital Construction Brussels (DCB) trade fair, which is being held for only the second time in 2018, the Belgian Construction Confederation and the Belgian Building Research Institute (BBRI) are going one step further, bringing construction professionals together with over 70 EXHIBITORS showcasing the endless possibilities offered by digital technologies in the construction industry.
An extensive range of SEMINARS will form a centrepiece of this event (see programme).
NEW: This year, DCB will feature a DRONE AREA with DEMONSTRATIONS.
The second edition of the STUDENT COMPETITION will also be part of DCB.
Digital Construction Brussels will be held at the Tour & Taxis exhibition and trade centre in central Brussels (Avenue du Port 86c, BE-1000 Brussels) on:
