We're delighted to announce that Transport Minister Jesse NOrman MP has agreed to speak at the ADEPT Autumn Conference on 22 November!

Along with the Minister, we're pleased to have secured an exciting line-up of speakers, including:

  • Nathan Baker of the Institution of Civil Engineers talking about the Year of the Engineer
  • Nick Burkitt from the Department for Exiting the EU, on all things Brexit and prospects and priorities for the UK
  • Adrian Brown of Berkeley Group, on the challenges of delivering quality alongside quantity of housing
  • Graham Pendlebury from DfT and Tom Kelly from HS2 on delivering successful, sustainable infrastructure

 There’s a varied programme of workshops discussing topics such as the circular economy, the SMART Places research programme and skills for growth. We're also working with the LEP Network on this year’s programme, with the network taking the lead on the Local solutions to a dynamic national economy plenary session. And look out for the Directors’ Dragons’ Den!

 We're very grateful to our sponsors – Ringway, Kier, WSP, Amey, Atkins-SNC Lavalin Group, Volker Highways – whose generous support means attendance fees remain unchanged from the last two years.
