STA Member to Member Networking Event Birmingham
28th February 2019 until 28th February 2019
at Gallery Suites, NEC, Birmingham
We are conscious that your time is precious, so this will be a focused half day event running between 08.30 – 13.00 to include a networking lunch, centrally located in Birmingham with easily accessible public transport networks.
In addition to over 2hours of focused networking and meeting opportunities, you will also receive one hour dedicated to STA updates on strategic and Committee activity, plus an hour of high-calibre presentations by guest speakers – including Simon Delahunty-Forrest, City Design and Conservation Manager at Birmingham City Council who will present on plans for the 2022 Commonwealth Games, and how they’re planning to capitalise on the opportunity to further accelerate local housing delivery…which should open up some fantastic opportunities for structural timber technology. Anthony Thistleton, Founding Partner of leading architects Waugh Thistleton will also join us to present ‘Architecture is political; it’s time for the timber revolution’
The event is FREE to attend for STA members – however we have designed a range of exhibition/sponsorship opportunities for those wishing to enhance their presence with branding, literature, samples and hand-outs. These opportunities start from as little as £300 and you can download the PDF of packages via this link: www.structuraltimber.co.uk/sponsorship-opportunities-2019
