Ecobuild 2013 is almost here!

For the third year in a row the Ecobuild Conference is brought to you in association with UK-GBC and everyone is looking forward to our sixth year of attending. 

You can visit us in the UK-GBC Village in the North Hall to speak to us about our training and education courses and the exclusive membership offer, attend sessions in the Big Tent and learn more about the new online platform, Pinpoint.

With a packed programme of events across the three days, be sure that you don’t miss out.

Big Tent

This year we are partnering with UKTI and Green Construction Board to bring you a range of internationally focussed sessions in the Big Tent; from panel discussions and seminars to briefings on the green agenda in different countries. Sessions are free to attend and a full programme can be found here.


UK-GBC is proud to be the lead delivery partner of Ecobuild's Conference programme which is returning once again to the main Arena. The conference focuses on new thinking and challenging ideas, as well as the pressing issues affecting Government policy and the construction sector. With renowned speakers including industry leaders, academics, MP’s and a few celebrities, the sessions aren’t to be missed. More information can be found here. Key sessions not to miss include:

The Green Deal and ECO – is it delivering? – The Arena

Is this the end of the road for zero carbon?

Is there a business case for green buildings?

Rising Star Award

During our 6th Birthday Party Member’s Reception on Wednesday 5 in the UK-GBC Village, we will officially launching Pinpinot and will also be announcing the winner of the Rising Star Award – an award launched this year by UK-GBC and PRP Architects in memory of Mel Starrs, a prominent built environment practitioner who sadly passed away in July 2012.

Sustainable Stand Awards

Continuing on the theme of awards, for the third year, we will be giving exhibitors at Ecobuild the opportunity to shout about the green credentials of their stand by entering the Sustainable Stand Awards.  Sponsored by Willmott Dixon, this year promises to be the biggest and most high-profile awards yet. The winner will be announced at the exhibitors’ party on Wednesday at 6pm in the Arena.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our Ecobuild 2013 platinum sponsors – Carillion, Heathrow, Marks & Spencer, Skanska and Willmott Dixon for their support.

Thanks also to Tishman Speyer for providing our massage therapists who will be available on the stand and to Parsons Brinckerhoff for providing the refreshments.
