Past years round-up

UK-GBC was launched at Ecobuild in 2007 and has been at the exhibition every year since. UK-GBC is instrumental in working with the Ecobuild team to help develop the content for the Conference, recruit speakers, and add resource to panels. This is the most significant association that we have had with any conference, show or exhibition. Here you can view a summary of some of our past years at Ecobuild.

Ecobuild 2016

UK-GBC was once again exclusive Lead Partner for the 2016 exhibition. The new agreement reflects UK-GBC’s commitment to enter into strategic collaborations that have the potential to achieve greater impact. It enables UK-GBC to take its message to an audience of over 40,000 visitors.

In keeping with UK-GBC’s focus on Leadership and Innovation, the new agreement allowed UK-GBC to host thought-provoking Leadership Insights sessions on the main conference stage on each of the three days of the exhibition. The sessions were focused on ‘The Future of Sustainable Housing’, ‘Innovative Design’ and ‘A Smarter Future’ respectively.
