100+ DIGEST #1

Dear participants and guests of the forum!

This is your first 2020 digest on the preparation process for one of the main construction-related events of the year in the region.

VII International Construction Forum and Expo 100+ TechnoBuild is planned to be hosted in Ekaterinburg on October 6-8 with the support of the Russian Ministry of Construction as well as Sverdlovsk Region Government and Ekaterinburg City Administration. 

Despite current challenges connected with the new COVID-19 pandemic, we are proactive in preparing for the forum and expo. The final decision on the format of the event will be made in July.

The main theme for this year's 100+ is Conscious Construction. We'll take a deep look at the concepts of well-thought-out and conscious development of urban infrastructure that has a direct influence on quality of life for citizens. With the pandemic, the subject has reached a new level of relevance.

The business program of the forum is planned to include 90 events with more than 350 invited speakers from Russia and other countries. Many of them have already confirmed their participation.
