The UK’s biggest festival for a zero-carbon built environment played host to transformative discussion and knowledge exchange on how we can break through barriers to accelerate our journey to zero carbon.
The festival ran from 4 September to 28 November and included 42 events, attended by 2000+ from across the sector in Scotland, UK and internationally. From Benbecula to Wicklow to Bristol, it was a rich programme encompassing all aspects of a zero-carbon built environment.
On 1 November we kicked off our two-day main event with the BE-ST Fest Summit, welcoming 500+ attendees, followed by an inaugural Accelerate to Zero Awards evening with over 180 guests.
On 2 November we held our first International Retrofit Conference with 300+ attendees.
44+ exhibitors, plus afternoon workshops and factory tours, captured the attention of the audience as the day continued to see connections being made, knowledge exchanged and solutions being explored.
BE-ST Fest '23 Summit was a resounding success, from thought-provoking keynote speakers to workshops and exhibits.
BE-ST and the National Retrofit Hub held the first ever conference dedicated to tackling retrofit in the UK at scale.
Celebrating those who are making the biggest contribution to decarbonising the built environment.
Hosted by stand-up comedian and former electrician Susie McCabe, the Awards took place after the BE-ST Fest Summit and ahead of the International Retrofit Conference which takes place today.
