INFRASTRUCTURE INTELLIGENCE PARTNERS WITH BECG ON AUTUMN EVENT SERIES

Infrastructure Intelligence is partnering with specialist communications consultancy for the built environment, BECG, for its new series of live online events taking place this autumn. The Infrastructure Intelligence Live series includes webinars, ‘In the Spotlight’ interviews and roundtable events, all of which are free to attend and will take place online hosted on the Zoom webinar platform.

The new series of events builds on the success of the highly successful programme of summer webinars organised by Infrastructure Intelligence which saw more than 2,000 people attend from across the industry. Infrastructure Intelligence Live starts on Friday 18 September 2020 at 11am with a webinar focusing on infrastructure delivery. Future events in the series, which will run mainly on Fridays from now until the end of the year, will look at the role of the metro mayors in levelling up the North/South divide, delivering a green recovery, planning and procurement reform, working oversees and the prospects for construction and infrastructure in 2021.

The ‘In the Spotlight’ live interviews are sure to be popular. The first features one of the most influential and high profile people in our industry, National Infrastructure Commission chair Sir John Armitt. In conversation with Infrastructure Intelligence editor Andy Walker, Sir John will discuss his career to date, offer his thoughts on the UK infrastructure sector, talk about the role of the National Infrastructure Commission, the politics of construction, the effects of the Covid crisis on the industry and much more. Another features Victoria Hills, chief executive of the Royal Town Planning Institute. One of the most high-profile women leaders in construction, Victoria is passionate about planning great liveable places and has an unrivalled insight into big city governance, having worked for all three London mayors.

Commenting on the new series of events, Infrastructure Intelligence editor Andy Walker said: “I’m delighted that we have been able to organise this series of live events and to be working with our strategic partner BECG and I look forward to their insights as we build on the success of our summer webinar series. As our industry emerges slowly into the new normal as we start the recovery from the Covid crisis, it’s more important than ever that we try to bring construction professionals together to discuss some of the key issues we all face as an industry and indeed a society. Jamie Gordon, director - infrastructure and energy at BECG, said: "In partnership with Infrastructure Intelligence we look forward to this programme of virtual events which will bring the infrastructure community together to share and learn from their experiences and to focus on what a successful future should look like for the sector."
