A major e-conference focussing on the role of the highways sector in Building Back Better as part of the Government’s major investment in highways maintenance and infrastructure is to be held in September.
The Build Back Better event, which will be in the form of an online event, comprising of presentations from leading sector experts, organisations and professional bodies, round table discussions, case studies and product & service demonstrations.
The event which will be free to ‘attend’, is being developed by sector suppliers Meon and aims to provide contractors, specifiers, asset owners and regulatory bodies with the increased knowledge and awareness along with the tools to deliver targeted outcomes in economic growth, sustainability and resilience through increased skills, diversity and collaboration.
Speaking about the ideas behind the event Meon MD Gary Spencer said,
“The opportunity afforded the sector by the Government’s renewed commitment to investing in highways maintenance and infrastructure presents all parts of the industry with a unique chance to deliver positive and sustainable change.
We have an opportunity to deliver on the provision of a highways network that promotes sustainable solutions, economic opportunity, greater accessibility to that opportunity and more environmentally sustainable infrastructure. We all have a part to play and we all need to ensure we have the skills and knowledge to deliver.
The Build Back Better event is not a commercial event, but is an opportunity across the sector to gain knowledge and understanding”
The speakers being lined up for the event will be announced over the coming weeks, as will details of how people can register for their place and also actively participate on the day.
