For busy housebuilders and developers planning days out of the office that can be packed full of learning is essential to stay ahead of the competition.
With just four weeks to go to UK Construction Week (UKCW) at the NEC on 8-10 October, now is the time to register and plan your day.

Learn from the experts
UKCW brings together more than 300 experts. Head to the Regeneration Hub to hear from Homes England; Swan Housing; Birmingham City Council; and Arup to name just a few.
The Building Tech section of the show houses the Digital Construction Hub, hear from digital pioneers from construction firms and get involved in practical workshops.
And with Brexit looming attending ‘Brexit Boom or Bust? Industry Economic Forecast 2020’ on the UKCW Main Stage is a must.
Health and wellbeing
Mental health needs to be talked about particularly within construction. Launching at UKCW this year, the Mind Your Head campaign is designed to promote mental wellbeing for those in construction. Advice will be on hand to take back to your business.
