VISITORS TO the ICE stand gave their impression of the ICE at the NEC.
Chris Hodgson - Merz & McLellan: 'I'm a fellow and I'm interested to see what ICE spend our fees on. The stand is imaginative, it's not at all tacky and it's really friendly once you come in.'
Brian Howells - Halcrow: 'It's very nice for a browse. There's a really good feel of what the ICE offers its membership.'
Tim Annear - Suffolk Highways: 'It's all right once you're inside but I think it's a bit low key, I expected it to be centre stage. It's good that there's some information on the Telford Challenge, I've not been able to find out anything about it.'
Michelle Lakin - Suffolk Highways: 'I've picked up a lot of literature to take away with me, including information about the corporate professional review which I need to start thinking about.'
Ephraim Kelaeng from Botswana - MSc Birmingham University, construction management: 'There is good information from the displays. Everyone I've spoken to has been very helpful. I came here to get a flavour of the industry at the moment. They have taken my name and will send me details about how to become a member.'
Andrew Urquhart - Bristol University graduate: 'I'm down from London on my way to an interview in London, so I thought I would stop over and get some more information about the ICE. They've taken my name and I'm definitely gong to join. It's a necessity.' John Glynn - John Brown Sade: 'I've just come to the UK after working in France and I've come to find out exactly how to become a member.'
