Major clients Crossrail and BAA have confirmed their support for this year’s Infrastructure Show, the dedicated event for the UK civils sector.
They will be actively involved in two of the show’s top attractions, the Rail and Airport Hubs.
“We are excited that Crossrail and BAA will be using the show to discuss their major projects and best practice,” said event director Rob Lozowski. “Their leadership, expertise and willingness to talk with the supply chain is incredibly significant and valuable.
“As the national forum for the civil engineering community, The Infrastructure Show is not just setting the agenda for the sector but is working with its major players to share knowledge, deal with the issues and drive it forward.”
Crossrail will be at the heart of The Infrastructure Show’s Rail Hub. Programme director Andy Mitchell lead a series of talks in the Rail Hub on Monday 17 October, explaining how the project is being delivered to reduce the risk of cost overruns and delays. Crossrail procurement and strategic directors will also be on hand to answer questions and to network.
