ICE's futuristic stand, E20, sets out to give visitors to Civils a high-profile meeting point, with four 'pods' providing information on the Institution's key activities.
The stand's 'network' pod will focus on the benefits of ICE membership and the ICE's new regional structure.
Its 'debate' pod will showcase the influential State of the Nation infrastructure report, published on 18 October. It will also feature other projects undertaken by the ICE's Engineering Policy & Innovation and External Relations teams. These include the recent Energy from Waste and forthcoming High Speed Rail reports.
The ICE's new range of on-line services will be on show in the 'innovate' pod. The on-line search tool, MyICE, allows members to search and contact others, and comes with an electronic news service. My Products & Services enables journals to be read and books to be ordered online. Members can sign up for conferences and courses. And the ICE's Ask Brunel service aims to answer civil engineering queries within 24 hours.
The ICE's commercial arm, Thomas Telford, will showcase its latest products and services, including the recently launched NEC3 contract documents, as well as recruitment and job search services.
