CE Midlands Annual Construction Summit

8th October 2019 at NEC, Birmingham

Following the terrible Grenfell tragedy and the downfall of Carillion and with the advent of an emphasis on Zero Carbon Quality & Compliance, Health & Wellbeing and Digitalisation & Offsite, the UK construction industry is changing fast.

Constructing Excellence is leading the way with much of this improvement agenda and this conference will bring together guest speakers from across the sector to positively disrupt your mindset and transform the way you think about the industry going forward.

Anybody leading or interested in change will find benefit from listening to and mixing with like minded and forward thinking individuals from across the Midlands construction sector.

Whether you be a client or a contractor or a consultant or a supplier in housing, building, infrastructure or asset management you will find this half day conference most stimulating.
