We organise conferences and other events at which the top industrial, research, academic and media experts explain, discuss and present the latest information on today’s key built environment issues. These can range from flood resilience and modern slavery, to the digital revolution and affordable homes provision. We also exhibit at many industry shows throughout the year.

See below for a selection of our forthcoming events.
