WDBE 2023 Summit

For the sixth year in a row, the World of Digital Built Environment (WDBE) Summit presents a comprehensive overview of the most important current events, phenomena, and solutions in the field of digital built environment. Join other built environment professionals to spend two inspiring summit days in Tallinn and Helsinki.

Each year, the WDBE Summit gathers participants from 30 countries. Attendees include CDOs, CTOs, and CIOs in real estate and construction. Also joining are government and city officials, architects, engineers, and researchers working with technologies like BIM, VDC, AR/VR, Big Data, analytics, IOT, and virtual project delivery.

The two-day summit starts on Tuesday, September 19, in Tallinn’s new cruise terminal and continues in Helsinki’s Clarion Hotel Jätkäsaari on the second day. You can join the Tallinn evening get-together on Monday to get to know other attendees and network with industry forerunners.

The summit’s theme in 2023 is Investing in Climate Through Tech, a most timely topic that touches everyone in the built environment sector. The program is packed with expertise and case studies for your organization’s journey to a sustainable future and the opportunities it creates.
