EDP & South England Joint Forum

South & EDP Region held their first conference on 12 July at the Royal Academy of Engineering where over 50 individuals from in-scope companies came together to hear and participate in workshops and presentations based on the six strategic themes for ECITB. The event was a huge success with many tier 1 and tier 2 contractors sharing their views and networking and forging ongoing business contacts. A number of the key training providers within the South were also on hand to talk to companies and answer any questions from in-scope companies.

The plans are now in place for next years’ event!
