Chepstow serves as the perfect location for launch of NFB's Wales Construction Forum

We are delighted to announce that places are now available for our new free to attend Wales Construction Forum (WCF).

Construction experts and influential industry figures within the sector will gather in Chepstow to attend the launch of the National Federation of Builders’ (NFB) WCF. The WCFs are local networking and critical construction information events, which will address topical issues and challenges faced by the industry.

The WCF will be a highly interactive event, with sessions that bring everyone together around broad themes and a variety of sessions focused on topics and initiatives. The NFB aims to create an interactive and informal space for dialogue and ideas, which moves beyond silos or simple presentations for research findings. 

The forums are designed to inform, engage and give businesses a commercial advantage, by bringing together clients and professionals who are keen to learn from one another and extend their networks of business contacts.

Construction forums will be held at various locations across the country. Members of the NFB and non members are invited to attend these free events. Light refreshments will be available at each forum, as well as the opportunity to network.
