The Big 5 CEO Forum convenes construction leaders driving the industry of the future

Putting the global construction industry back on the path of growth and sustainable development will require more than a global recovery, it will require strong partnerships, impactful leadership and changing mindsets.

The Big 5 CEO Forum will convene construction leaders to discuss support for future industry growth, collaboration, the workforce of the future, the impact of digitalisation, inspiring efficiency and advancing sustainable development. The Forum will include keynotes and panel discussions from industry leaders.
