Last chance to book places for European construction CEO conference

Next week, on 4-5 November 2019, sees the European CEO Conference taking place in London. This year’s conference, organised around the theme of ‘Delivering for Society’ and attended by CEOs and senior business executives from across the continent, combines a hard-hitting business programme with exclusive social and networking opportunities, including the European CEO Dinner on Monday 4 November.

Day one of the conference opens with a session on global infrastructure disruptors, led by Richard Threlfall, global head of infrastructure at KPMG, which will examine current trends impacting on the health of the construction sector. These include the volatility of domestic politics across European countries and ongoing global macro-economic trends, which could end up plunging the industry into a downturn.

Speakers in this session include Henrik Garver, CEO of the Danish Association of Consulting Engineers, Bernard Gilliot, board member at Tractebel, Rebecca Larkin, senior economist at the Construction Products Association and Geoffrey Spence, Jersey Ports non-executive director. This will be followed by sessions on climate change and the ongoing campaign to achieve net zero emissions and social and economic infrastructure.

Other speakers at the conference include Benoît Clocheret, CEO of ARTELIA, a leading French consulting, engineering and project management firm, Wouter Schik, sustainable design and development expert at Arcadis Netherlands, Mace CEO Mark Reynolds and Patricia Brown, director of Central.

The event will provide an unrivalled forum for discussion and debate between CEOs in the consultancy and engineering industry in the UK and continental Europe. Delegates will be able to discuss the impact of global economic, political and climate developments on markets and growth strategies and explore the latest evidence on the rate and impacts of climate change and the specific role of the engineering and consultancy industry in the journey to a net zero built environment.

Special offer for SME firms

Large firm CEOs and SME leaders alike will benefit from attending the conference and the organisers are especially keen to attract those from smaller firms, with a special delegate rate for ACE member firms with less than 250 staff of just £299 + VAT, which includes the European CEO Dinner event.
