Meon | Build Back Better – Free e-conference providing the sector with the tools to deliver on Government investment
The free to ‘attend’ e-conference providing clients, contractors, asset owners and managers with an insight into how the sector can deliver the response to the challenges laid down by the government’s investment in the UK’s highways network has unveiled its panel of expert speakers.
The BUILD BACK BETTER EVENT which is being held on 22nd September will feature a panel of high-profile sector experts, along with one of the country’s leading proponents of the concept of Build Back Better.
The speaker line-up will look at the key elements of Building Back Better and Building Back Different to ensure that the substantial increase in government expenditure delivers for local communities with resilient highways networks that boost local economies, whilst providing sustainable environmental benefits.
Speaking at the event will be:
- Sarah Mukerjee, CEO of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA)
- Mark Stevens, Chair of the ADEPT Engineering Board
- Steve Spender, CEO of the Institute of Highways Engineers (IHE)
- Martin Duffy, CEO of the Local Council Roads Innovation Group (LCRIG)
- Will Britain, President of the Local Council Roads Innovation Group (LCRIG)
George Lee, former CEO of HTMA and now Senior Consultant at highway’s consultancy Blue Symmetry who are helping to co-ordinate the event, said:
“The multi-million pound investments that local authorities will be making in their road networks over the coming years presents an opportunity and a challenge, along with a responsibility to deliver a better, more resilient network and one that is sustainable and a vehicle for prosperity and community wellbeing. This free event provides all highway’s stakeholders with access to experts that are leading developments in making this delivery happen.
“We are delighted that such big hitters are leading the way in promoting the ideas behind Build Back Better; with the leaders of three key organisations and the Transport Professional of the Year providing the expertise at the event, there will be something for all of us to learn from participating.”
Mr Lee added:
“The Build Back Better event is not a commercial event, but is an opportunity across the sector to gain knowledge and understanding.”
The event, being hosted by sector specialists Meon, builds on the company’s virtual expo in July and aims to provide the sector with the tools to deliver targeted outcomes in economic growth, sustainability and resilience. In addition to the speaker presentations the online event will include round table discussions, case studies and product and service demonstrations.
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 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.”
