We are looking to build a technical programme across the building surveying spectrum that encompasses a range of relevant industry issues, experiences, solutions and innovations that will give delegates, including our stakeholder colleagues, an opportunity to gain further insight, knowledge and expertise with the goal to develop their skills as professionals in their fields.

If you have a topic, presentation or research which would be a great fit in our technical programme, we want to hear from you.
