The biggest annual event for construction in Kent is nearly here.
On Thursday 6th October, everyone who’s anyone in construction will be descending on the Kent Event Centre in Detling. The Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce event, running for over 14 years now, provides a valuable platform for the entire construction industry, for open conversation, collaborative working, education, new faces and opportunities.
The Kent Construction EXPO attracts around 2,500 visitors each year and delivers a full day of educational and inspirational speakers, ‘meet the buyer’ sessions, round table discussions and the opportunity to wander exhibition halls filled by over 150 different businesses from across the supply chain.
Local industry heavyweights including Baxall, Jenner, Bauvill, Kier, Willmott Dixon, DHA Planning, Lee Evans Partnership and Clague Architects will be there, as well as clients, consultants, educators and building control officers, looking to keep themselves updated, seeking inspiration and taking the opportunity for interactive and free speech on topics such as building sustainably, new building regulations and digital construction.
The opening keynote is being made by Roma Agrawal, the structural engineer responsible for the Shard’s spire, with her speech ‘Breaking the Black Box’ of engineering technology. Also speaking is government advisor on the golden thread and The Building Safety Act, Bola Abisogun OBE, and circular economy expert Duncan Baker-Brown of Baker-Brown (architects).
