A new series of online events will bring together key speakers and influencers from the construction and infrastructure sector during 2022, reports Infrastructure Intelligence editor Andy Walker.
Infrastructure Intelligence has unveiled its 2022 online live events programme with another interesting and informative series of webinars, interviews and conferences planned for the year, all organised in association with events and communications strategic partner, BECG.
The new 2022 Infrastructure Intelligence Live programme will highlight many of the key issues facing the construction and infrastructure industry and builds on many of the issues that have arisen from our very successful 2021 online events programme which saw thousands of industry professionals take part.
The 2022 programme kicks off with a webinar looking at how construction transforms the world and its contribution to solving some of the biggest issues the planet faces like climate change and transport connectivity post-Covid. A bold and big start there then! This webinar is followed by events highlighting diversity and inclusion and the key issues of placemaking and its increasing role in regional development.
A Big Digital Debate in April will look at how digital transformation is changing the way the sector works. What are the key drivers to achieving digital transformation? What are the key barriers to change and what key developments should we be watching out for that will disrupt the industry going forward? This webinar will address these questions and more.
May sees a key event of the year – our latest conference looking at social value and levelling up. Following on from the successful Infrastructure Intelligence social value online conference in 2021, this year’s event will explore what social value means in practice in a sector that is often seen as leading the way in demonstrating the social benefit of its work.
A webinar on housebuilding and why this should be seen as part of infrastructure takes place in June and this is followed up by a July webinar looking at the increasing importance of nature-based solutions and the promotion of an approach to infrastructure development that protects and restores ecosystems to provide human wellbeing and biodiversity benefits.
In September we’ll take a look at how AI is changing the face of the construction sector and we’ll also shine a spotlight on US president Joe Biden’s $1 trillion infrastructure plans by interviewing a key player from the US construction industry. October sees a webinar looking at how can construction address its skills crisis – a vital task given the amount of work the government expects it to carry out as it looks to ‘Build back better’.
Our final In the Spotlight Interview of the year in November sees HS2 CEO Mark Thurston take the chair for an in-depth chat about all things major projects and a lot more besides and we round off the year in December with our customary look forward to what 2023 might bring for construction and infrastructure sector.
The Infrastructure Intelligence LIVE series of events is organised in association with our Events and Communications Strategic Partner, BECG.
