CIBSE Build2Perform Live 2019                                               

About the Event 

The two day event features 80+ hours of approved CPD, 90+ speakers, 2,000 attendees and 70 exhibitors. There are two ways to be involved in the event, either attending as a visitor or by exhibiting. Build2Perform Live 2019 is the meeting place for forward-thinking industry professionals, visionary speakers, leading industry exhibitors and young talent. 

Inclusion and Diversity

We believe at CIBSE that an inclusive culture brings resilience, creativity and innovation – qualities that deliver both better buildings and a stronger building service engineering community. We are working hard to ensure that our organisation and profession are welcoming to all, for the benefit of all. A major event such as CIBSE Build2Perform Live is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate this commitment.

As producer of the technical content for the event, I have worked hard with colleagues and members to create a varied programme, inviting speakers with different backgrounds, experiences and opinions to collectively address the breadth of building performance in a knowledgeable and engaging manner. Diversity isn’t just about the lineup of speakers and who’s on stage, taking a holistic view, it is also about the organisers, staff and of course the event attendees.

CIBSE Build2Perform Live is about making connections – between people, ideas, knowledge and experiences – to gain insights at the intersections of issues to enable practical, positive action on building performance. This richness can only be achieved through an event which is diverse and inclusive and we hope that you will find it of great value.

“I was pleasantly surprised to leave the event having genuine ideas which we will incorporate within our building in the near future" Build2Perform 2018

Free to attend, seminar sessions will focus on three key themes within the building performance environment: Design, Deliver, Perform. 

Build2Perform Live is the biggest, most significant two-day interactive event dedicated to helping built environment professionals and the wider supply chain improve efficiency and save money through effective building services.

The CIBSE CPD accredited programme has been carefully curated by CIBSE Divisions, CIBSE Special Interest Groups and the Build2Perform Live Advisory Committee, with specialist speakers invited from across the built environment.
