The inaugural industry event is a showcase for UK construction ambition

In association with


From Rethinking Construction (1998) to the acclaimed Modernise or Die report (2016), the need to improve the construction industry has been well documented for many years. The political landscape is changing and, spurred on by climate change, the housing crisis has established the urgent need to increase productivity.

These compelling factors have resulted in the launch of Offsite Expo. Taking place at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, on 24 and 25 September 2019, it is the brainchild of leading industry experts who understand the vital requirement for a dedicated event that will promote quality and efficiency in UK construction and drive this growing momentum forward.


Those who are challenging traditional practices from across the globe will stand alongside our home-grown talent to demonstrate what can be achieved with a progressive approach. Construction is at critical crossroads, and it is clear that contractors need to adapt to become more like the innovative disruptors in other manufacturing sectors, such as aerospace and automotive.

Offsite Expo brings together the sector’s most influential organisations, individuals, commentators and business leaders who are instrumental in industry progression. The event will play host to inspiring UK and international offsite manufacturers, component suppliers and digital innovators, who will be showcasing a broad spectrum of offsite systems and smart technologies through exhibitions, CPD-accredited Masterclasses and the CPD-accredited Offsite Summit.


EXPERIENCE – the CPD-Accredited Offsite Masterclasses 
In an ever-changing world, the key to success is adapting and embracing emerging best practice principles. The free CPD-accredited Masterclasses will be presented by the industry pioneers who are making the headlines, such as Waugh Thistleton Architects. The Masterclasses will focus on key industry innovations and provide a comprehensive and balanced perspective on this rapidly emerging sector. They are split into offsite and digital technologies, including Pre-cast Concrete, Digital Construction, MEP & Pod, Light Gauge Steel Frame, Skills & Innovation, Hybrid, Structural Timber, Training & Skills, Volumetric Modular and Roofing.

CPD’s have become a vital part of professional career requirements, particularly for architects. The majority of architectural institutes now require members to undertake a minimum number of CPD hours each year. With circa 20 hours of informative CPD accredited content, the Offsite Expo Masterclasses provide the opportunity to learn directly from those who are shaping the future of construction and help fulfil this commitment.

OS Awards: FP McCann (retail/leisure category winner)

Thought-provoking seminars will be hosted by offsite experts from Studio Partington, BSRIA, Metsa Wood, The McAvoy Group, the Structural Timber Association, the Modular and Portable Building Association Waugh Thistleton, Blumer-Lehmann AG and Peter Dann, to name a few.

EXPECT – International Innovation at the CPD-Accredited Offsite Summit 
With sessions chaired by some of the industry’s biggest names, including Mark Farmer – author of the ‘Modernise or Die’ report – over 30 international speakers ranging from architects and specifiers to engineers, manufacturers and project managers will participate in the Offsite Summit. Speakers will include experts from HTA Design, Entekra, Skystone Group and DP Architects.

Delegates will have the chance to interact with speakers during panel Q&A sessions, structured networking and an evening drinks reception. Advanced offsite approaches and smart technologies are changing the face of construction globally, and we can learn from the way that other countries are addressing similar challenges.


OFFSITE CONNECT – Architects are Invited to Join the Buyers and Specifiers Forum 
Offsite Connect provides a solution to address offsite construction technology project requirements by facilitating personally selected ‘one-to-one’ business meetings. The Forum will provide an opportunity to network with key offsite industry experts who have a genuine desire to conduct purposeful meetings. Specifiers will also have the chance to learn about the latest offsite product innovations from technical and architectural specialists. This focused approach has proven highly successful in creating new business relationships.

Registration for buyers and specifiers wishing to participate in the Offsite Connect activity can be done online at:
