AFTER A SUCCESSFUL 2018 Conference, which saw over 100 industry professionals attending, the 5th annual Women in Roofing Conference 2019 is being held at the Vox conference centre, Resort World, Birmingham on the 24th June 2019.
This year’s Women in Roofing Conference has the title Choosing Change.
Organisers say this reflects the changes made to the format and content of the conference. This year, it is being professionally organised and facilitated with a greater focus on networking and substantive learning opportunities for delegates, whilst still celebrating the commitment, contribution and enthusiasm that women bring to the roofing industry.
Women in Roofing reports that the conference is being sponsored by, and has contributions from, a wide range of industry individuals, organisations and businesses which they say “is indicative of the growing support for our activities and initiatives”.
The 2019 Conference will look at the most relevant and pressing of the challenges facing the industry and offer focused interactive sessions and workshops and inspiring keynote speakers. It will also look at best practice case studies and hear from people who are challenging the norm.
