We are always looking at opportunities to raise the profile of our industry by bringing together our Members with other sector organisations and industry partners to everyone’s mutual benefit. Throughout 2023 and beyond, we will continue to host wherever possible, a series of technical briefings and our regular networking meetings to provide up-to-date technical content and opportunities for Members to collaborate, meet like-minded people, share their views and gain exceptional industry knowledge whilst developing strong relationships across the Region.
