BE Networking – VIRTUAL – Historic Buildings; Regenerating & Restoring
2 September - 10:00 - 11:00£25
Over the coming months we’ll be hosting a series of webinars – helping to keep the industry moving and talking during a period of uncertainty, enabling people to talk and build relationships whilst helping to maintain industry confidence and demonstrating thought leadership.
This webinar will focus specifically on historic buildings – from large scale restorations to the regeneration of heritage buildings into new homes and employment hubs, ensuring we don’t lose unique and historical assets. Speakers will be invited to discuss key issues and challenges, whilst sharing intel on their current and future development programmes.
This event will run in a similar manner to all of our physical events – with short presentations from several key speakers and opportunities for live Q&A and interaction.
More speakers for this event will be announced shortly.
