The Home of Offsite Technology Innovation

The construction sector is at a critical crossroads - offsite technology is now recognised as providing the most important solution to overcome many of the challenges facing the industry today.

Bringing together the sector’s most influential innovators who are driving change in the construction industry, OFFSITE EXPO provides fast and efficient access to a wealth of knowledge and offsite innovation. By attending this one highly focused event, construction professionals can gain a broad spectrum of offsite industry intelligence and practical insight – all under one roof.

Taking place at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry on 22 and 23 September 2020 – OFFSITE EXPO is the focal-point of innovative building and digital construction technologies. Presenting a compelling proposition, Offsite Expo will feature a combination of advanced manufacturing approaches and smart digital construction technologies. With innovative displays, live demonstrations, and pioneering speakers – the event will play host to leading experts, offsite manufacturers and component suppliers showcasing a broad spectrum of panelised, volumetric modular systems, pod and prefabricated MEP solutions.

In 2019 Offsite Expo exceeded expectations attracting 2,874 unique visitors, over 100 professionals with purchasing power participated in the Offsite Connect Buyers and Specifiers Forum, in excess of 100 exhibiting companies promoted offsite solutions and smart technologies and more than 40 hours of CPD Accredited presentations took place. The feedback was universal - Offsite Expo was acknowledged as featuring the most informative and inspiring content.


The case is unequivocal – offsite technology challenges outmoded construction practices and is a progressive and productive step that is set to revolutionise the way buildings are designed and assembled. Every major review of the construction industry has in some way recommended a move towards advanced factory-based construction methods.

This specialist offsite technology event is destined to become Europe’s largest dedicated event, providing direct access to explore this innovative and fast-moving sector. Get to grips with the latest offsite methods and smart digital technology – Offsite Expo showcases the widest and most comprehensive display within the built environment including but not limited to:

• Framing Solutions in Concrete, Timber and Steel
• Modular Volumetric Systems
• Bathroom and Kitchen Pods
• Pre-engineered MEP Building Services
• Prefabricated Building Components
• Digital/ BIM/Augmented Reality (AR)/ Virtual Reality (VR)


Presenting the optimum personal development opportunity – rapid and efficient access to the latest information is crucial to success. Advanced offsite approaches and innovative technologies are changing the face of construction, the Offsite Masterclass Theatre provides over 40 hours of CPD Accredited presentations in a dynamic and interactive format for those looking to learn direct from eminent offsite industry experts.


Speaker opportunities are now very limited, however if you have a ground-breaking project that you would like to present at OFFSITE EXPO, email Rhian Hassall, Event Manager: to find out how you can get involved.


The Offsite Connect Forum is the most dynamic ‘meet the buyer’ business development opportunity of the year. Offsite Expo exhibitors can gain access to key industry professionals with a buying or specifying remit. This Forum offers a structured, highly effective way for new and existing offsite industry suppliers to connect with potential customers easily and cost effectively in highly focused meetings.

The greatest success of the 2019 event for many, were the business development opportunities secured in the Offsite Connect Buyers and Specifiers Forum, which was a hive of activity and open exclusively to exhibitors. With over 100 buyers and specifiers participating from high profile construction companies such as Mace, Willmott Dixon, Kier, Balfour Beatty, Galliford Try and the NHS – over 330 business meetings took place and feedback from both the buyers and exhibitors has been outstanding.

Participating buyer, Julian Humphreys, Programme Manager at Community Health Partnerships said: ‘Offsite Connect was a very useful forum that enabled contact with organisations associated with the offsite market, and I established a number of new connections. The offsite market is expanding, and the event provided the ability to explore new opportunities and new products at a single location, making Offsite Expo a very efficient and cost-effective method of networking.’
