LCCI are delighted to be officially supporting London Build 2015 - LCCI Chief Executive Colin Stanbridge.
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 1 April 2015
The London Build 2015 team is proud to announce that it is now officially supported by the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI). LCCI is the capital’s largest and most representative business organisation. Representing the interests of thousands of companies, they connect thousands of business people every year and offer their members a wide range of practical and professional services, designed to support your business in its development.
Colin Stanbridge, Chief Executive of London Chamber of Commerce & Industry said: “LCCI are delighted to be officially supporting London Build 2015. We are very aware of both the successes and issues in the property and construction sector, particularly the looming skills gap, which was revealed in our recent report with KPMG – Skills to Build. As London’s most representative business organisation, with members large and small, we have a policy agenda underpinned by research reports, quarterly surveys and member committees and housing, infrastructure, land supply and building in the capital are an important part of that agenda.”
Alongside the LCCI, we can also announce that The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) will be joining The Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE) as lead event partners.
The free CPD accredited conference will be accompanied by over 24 accredited workshops all featuring fantastic speakers from across the construction industry and local government. The latest confirmed conference speakers are:
Chris Chivers, Senior Vice President, Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB)
Jamie Ratcliff, Assistant Director Programme, Policy and Services, Business Support Unit – Housing and Land, Greater London Authority.
Nigel Hardy, TfL Surface Transport, Head of Road Space Management Sponsorship, Transport for London.
Simon Wright, Programme Director, Crossrail.

London Build 2015 is the leading new construction exhibition to focus on the construction boom in London and the South of England. The event will take place at the O2 London, accommodating 200+ international exhibitors and thousands of quality attendees showcasing the latest projects, developments, investment and opportunities in and around the Capital.
In addition to the exhibition, conferences and training workshops, we are hosting the London Construction Awards 2015 on June 18th at the O2 (on the evening of Day One of the London Build Expo). The Awards will be recognising achievements by those that have played a defining role in delivering exceptional quality, innovation and service and in driving the London construction industry forwards. The evening features a Gala Dinner, exclusive presentations from industry leaders, a wide-array of live entertainment, and comedy-sets from celebrity acts, including the hilarious Jimmy Carr.
