THE INSTITUTION of Civil Engineers' stand at Civils 2000 will be a welcoming and familiar sight for those arriving at the show this year. It will be prominently sited at the entrance to Hall 9 and will be the same style that proved such a success at Civils 98.
A 'wealth of new material' will be on display, a spokesman promised. 'This is the first fruit of the new communications strategy written by our new director of communications Alan Smith, ' he said.
The stand is to sport the ICE's new corporate colours and will fly the promotional strapline 'expanding horizons @ ICE'.
Material will be based on three key themes: Setting the Standards, Developing Members' Skills and Promoting the Profession. It includes a handy pocket sized mini guide, a new brochure, Civil Engineering Human Potential, Joining the ICE - the routes to professional development and qualification and Make Your Mark, targeted at 11-13 year olds.
In addition to ICE Group staff and regional liaison officers, vice presidents, graduates and students national committee and Midlands LA representatives are supporting the ICE's show.
President George Flemming will be at Civils on Monday 22 May and Thursday 25 May, when he will chair the keynote seminar Training Engineers for 2025.
On Wednesday 23 May, senior vice-president Joe Dwyer will be at the launch of the joint ICE/NCE campaign State of the Nation - Measuring the Quality of the UK's Infrastructure. Chief executive Mike Casebourne will also be putting in an appearance.
