Atom launched the Digital Construction Summit in 2019 as an annual conference for digital professionals in the built environment sector. In its first year, the event attracted 150 paying delegates, with speakers coming from government, key clients, major construction companies and software houses. Partners included skills body the CITB, and tech firms CADS and Zutec.
Following the Covid-19 pandemic, the conference moved to a virtual format in 2020 and some 3,000 delegates registered for the online sessions. The programme for the virtual conference includes high-profile senior executives and policymakers from across the construction industry, who engage in panel discussions, Q&As and audience interaction, tackling issues ranging from artificial intelligence to net zero.
