Urbano Build is a programme of regular networking events in London, aimed at architects, developers, property investors, designers, interior designers and other professionals associated with the built environment sector to encourage  connections, gather information, create associations and find new business opportunities, and share best practice

Urbano Build events are stripped down conferences, exploring interesting themes and built around great speakers, where the the focus is on networking and creating connections and opportunities. You always meet a diverse range of businesses, from SMEs to large PLCs, and their representatives in a lively session of informal but facilitated networking.

For the past five years, Mark Herring, Urbano Network's MD, has been bringing together audiences to hear high-profile construction and property sector speakers, such as the Stephen Hodder, President of RIBA, Kevin McCloud (Grand Designs), Wayne Hemingway and Jackie Sadek, CEO of UKRegeneration - see Jackie's testimonial below.

"I have a lot of time for Urbano Build network. They have a philosophy of "exchanging value" that I find rather empowering. Urbano Network is a facilitating vehicle, brokering opportunities for smaller companies to get involved, both with each other, and with larger partners. They champion quality suppliers, especially in areas such as BIM, design and new technologies." 
Jackie Sadek, CEO - UK Regeneration
