Industry leaders from Argent, the Cabinet Office, Heathrow and UK Regeneration will be among a 10-strong advisory board for this year’s CN Summit.
Chief executives from Mace, Morgan Sindall and VolkerWessels UK are also among the 10 industry leaders who will advise on the content and speakers for this year’s event.
Head of construction at the Cabinet Office David Hancock will also offer a public sector perspective on the CN Summit’s content (see box for full list of advisers).
Now in its fourth year, the CN Summit will take place over two days at the Hilton Bankside in London on 11-12 October.
New plans for this year’s industry-leading event include a day-long skills hack on 11 October in the form of an interactive workshop to agree tangible actions on tackling the skills crisis.
The results will then be presented the following day at the main conference.
A 24-hour digital hack will also take place as well as technical talks on projects and masterclasses on the next generation of tall buildings, regional regeneration and collaboration in projects.
The Summit will hear from leading politicians, clients, contractors and experts from outside the construction industry.
BBC journalist Andrew Neil, co-host of BBC’s Daily Politics, will again chair this year’s event.
