Registration for the World Construction Championship III Started

Registration for the World Construction Championship III started on June 12. The preliminary selection stage of the main and student leagues will last from July 24 to August 31, 2023. Following the results of the preliminary selection stage, the best entries will receive an invitation to participate in the finals, which will take place on October 17-20, 2023 at Expoforum Exhibition Centre, St. Petersburg.

The prize fund of the World Construction Championship in 2023 will be RUB 53.1 million. In addition to cash prizes, the winners and runners-up of the Championship will become participants in the “More Than a Journey” project, supported by “Russia – the Land of Opportunities”, and will have an opportunity to visit interesting places across the country.

The theme of this World Construction Championship is “Technologies for the New Times”. The event will include competitions for construction industry professionals, schoolchildren, and students of construction universities in 25 categories for workers and construction engineers. It will also include a business programme with round tables, plenary discussions, pitching of promising projects and technological trends in the construction industry, an exhibition to showcase unique technologies in construction and related industries, and a presentation of the latest construction machinery and equipment.

"This is the second time the Championship is being held with the support of the presidential "Russia – the Land of Opportunities" platform. It is important for us that the main objectives of the Championship in 2023 are to raise the prestige and popularise working professions, as well as to make a qualitative change in the construction industry in the field of professional training. For the first time this year, we launched the School League, an all-Russia competition in solving cases in the field of construction among students in Years 8-10. It is organised jointly with the CASE-IN International Engineering Championship. Competition in this field grows every year, so I am sure that the participants and winners are Russia's golden talent pool, which will become the backbone and leading force of the country's construction industry"

said Alexey Agafonov, First Deputy Director General of “Russia – the Land of Opportunities”

The events will be attended by government officials, business people, public business associations, experts and specialists in the field of residential and industrial construction from more than 40 countries.

Working groups on construction, housing and utilities will meet within the framework of the Intergovernmental Commissions. There is a plan for a number of important agreements for the construction industry to be signed.

In addition to the industrial construction sector, the housing and financial sectors are invited to participate in the event.

The Championship will provide an opportunity for all participants to undergo diagnostics and assessment of their multi-disciplinary (universal) competencies and receive a report with recommendations for self-development. Participants will be able to do this from June 12, 2023, through their personal account on the platform "Russia – the Land of Opportunities".

The World Construction Championship was established in February 2020 by the Russian Ministry of Construction and the Rosatom State Corporation. The first event was held in April 2021 in Sochi, and Championship II took place in 2022 in Kazan. Since 2022, the Championship has been one of the projects of the presidential "Russia – the Land of Opportunities" platform.
