How can the built environment sector address increasingly urgent challenges such as climate change and manpower scarcity? What can the sector do to design, build and operate to sustain competitiveness while keeping with the Singapore Green Plan 2030? The International Built Environment Week (IBEW) 2022 is set to address these questions with its focus on digital technologies and solutions.

Leading experts and industry players are convening to showcase digital technologies that support and accelerate the growth of the built environment industry. This much-anticipated week comprises IBEW, which runs from 5th to 9th September 2022, with the tentpole IBEW Conference and trade exhibition BEX Asia, which runs from 6th to 8th September 2022. To be held at Sands Expo & Convention Centre, both physical programmes will feature cutting-edge technologies like 3D scanning, IoT-powered energy and facilities solutions, and Integrated Digital Delivery for projects.
