Facing challenges, the construction supply chain is becoming more efficient rapidly. Industrialization, modularity and prefabrication - in short 'offsite construction' - is an important part of the road to flawless operations. 

OFFSITE International's programme caters specifically to architects, consultants, designers, builders, contractors, housing experts, energy experts, investors, contractors, installers and municipal -, social housing – and government officials.

Learn from leading international experts, entrepreneurs and innovators during a full day conference in the 1931 conference centre in Den Bosch. And be inspired by what is rapidly becoming reality in the international construction industry.
