When & where

21-24 April 2020 in Stockholm, Sweden


Urbanisation, climate change and mobility challenges are putting cities under pressure and new innovative solutions are in demand.

The built environment sector is Sweden’s largest single sector, but it is currently a fragmented sector.  Sweden needs to increase production, shorten lead times and reduce effects on environment and climate.

Smart built environment is a prioritized strategic innovation program by the Swedish government. New innovations are tested and there is a need for new ideas to reduce the sector’s environmental impact, shorten planning and construction times, reduce total construction costs and facilitate a new business logic in the sector.

Dutch companies have a long tradition of managing complex urban situations and can match their offer with demands abroad.

For more extensive market information we refer to the report European Construction Sector Observatory | Country Factsheet Sweden, published in September 2019
