It is nearly November again, and that means it is nearly Civils time. NCE has an anual event for the construction industry that brings consultants, clients, policy makers, contractors, suppliers and individuals together to discuss the issues affecting the sector. They also get to show off their services to each other in a bid to secure work in the future. It is a great event because it unites the industry and provides a forum for all. I am going to be writing about what is happening at the event from the two day conference to the products on show.
There are some exciting speakers from Tory shadow transport secretary MP Stephen Hammond to head of Crossrail, Network Rail and many many more.
5 reasons to visit Civils 2009
Civils 2009 is the only place where visitors can listen to the latest insights into UK “mega” projects, find out what policy makers are planning for future transport and environmental legislation and hear from leading industry figures from Sir Michael Pitt to Shadow Transport Secretary MP Stephen Hammond. And it is all free as part of the the Civilisation Congress conference programme.
Civils is the only event where all of the country’s civil engineering professionals gather together. There are countless networking opportunities from the free conference sessions to the stands at the exhibition. “This has been a great show for us. We’ve met loads of new people at Civils,” said Susie Potter, Business Liaison Co-ordinator for Sellafield.
