Digital Construction Week Acquired by Diversified Communications
Diversified Communications announced today the addition of Digital Construction Week to their building, construction and technology portfolio of events. Digital Construction Week is the United Kingdom’s leading trade show dedicated to digital construction, engineering, design, manufacturing, and operation.
This event complements Diversified’s industry leading event portfolio with market reach across four countries. Events include GEO Business in London, Commercial UAV Expo Europe in Amsterdam, DesignBUILD in Sydney, and in the United States: AEC Next Technology Expo & Conference and SPAR 3D in Anaheim, CA; International LiDAR Mapping Forum in Denver, CO; and Commercial UAV Expo Americas in Las Vegas, NV.
“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,” remarked Diversified’s President & 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 UK division, under Managing Director Carsten Holm.”
Digital Construction Week is a growing event, known for its comprehensive, high-quality seminar and conference program and qualified attendees, who return year after year. The latest, and fourth edition, held at ExCeL in London on October 16-17 was the most successful to date. Doubling its 2017 attendance, it attracted 6,500 visitors, 200 exhibitors and 250 speakers, presenting across 6 stages with a dedicated conference stream.
Holm expressed that “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 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 UK continues to strengthen its position as one of the most successful trade show organizers in the UK. The award-winning UK division of Diversified Communications now employs over 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 October 17-18, 2019.
