Thank you for attending!

Whether you were able to join us for all or part of the day, we've created this page to host all the videos of the sessions, plus further reading around the important themes that were discussed.

The digital event for the digital future

At NBS, we believe in connecting construction information. It's a the heart of what we do, and The Construction Leader Summit: The Digital Future was about exactly that, inviting industry and our in-house experts to discuss and help you prepare for the coming changes in construction, and what that means in a post-COVID-19 world.

We hope you enjoyed it and found the speakers to be both valuable and insightful.We had a brilliant line up of speakers, each delivering fantastic presentations on some of the key themes within the construction industry, such as political and regulatory changes, the impact of COVID-19 and the rapid acceleration of digitisation - as well as the 'next normal' and what to expect in the coming months and years. Plus many more interesting and thought-provoking topics.

All the recordings of the speaker presentations are now available. If you have any questions about the event or you are interested in any of our NBS products, then contact us at info@thenbs.com
