The 2018 BESA Conference will host high profile sessions on commercial issues, implications of the Hackitt Review, impact of Brexit, meet the buyer events and discussions on mental health and diversity. Preparing for a post-Hackitt, post-Carillion, post-Brexit industry, we will focus on key changes facing BESA members.

With demands on margins, higher safety standards and better technical delivery, we will examine what developments mean for BESA members, their business and winning and delivering work. Key note speakers, expert panels, political commentators and technical debates will give attendees:

  • Demonstrating competence and compliance
  • Preparing for coming industry change
  • What action should you be taking
  • Addressing the skills gap

Special Sessions Include:
