Movement for Innovation annual conference

Rethinking construction - profiting from innovation

22 May

Results from the demonstration projects will be the big draw to this event. Actual performance measured against key performance indicators will show which innovations do work and which do not as construction rethinks the way it works. Breakout sessions allow you to build your own programme for the day and dip in and out of the plenary events being held alongside. There is real business advantage to be gained here.

Tel: (0207) 505 8564, e-mail:

Price £175 for demonstration project members; £425 for everyone else.
