NFB launches new Regional Construction Forums

Construction experts and influential industry figures within the sector will gather across the country to attend regional launch events of the National Federation of Builders’ (NFB) Regional Construction Forums (RCF) which will be held at various locations across the country and are free to attend.

The RCFs are local networking and critical construction information events, which will address topical issues and challenges faced by the industry.

The RCFs will be highly interactive events, 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.

We are delighted to announce that places are now available for all RCFs. 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.

What’s really important is that these events will provide business critical information and are free to attend, so we encourage you to book your place today.”
