Ecobuild 2015 will provide a key staging post in the countdown to this year's General Election, putting the architectural and construction industry firmly in the spotlight at Excel London between March 3-5.
A comprehensive conference programme, workshops and the input of industry-leading companies exhibiting at the event, Ecobuild will see a host of big name industry and Westminster speakers helping to set a key agenda for the election campaign.
TSP Media will be exhibiting at the event, on stand S2016.
Over the past ten years Ecobuild has cemented its position as the sustainable design, construction and energy marketplace for the new build, refurb, commercial and domestic buildings.
Providing a showcase for innovative products and materials, from building materials and structures to renewable energy, micro-generation and energy management products, Ecobuild provides the definitive platform for businesses representing the entire spectrum of building products for new build, refurbishment, residential and commercial projects.
It also stages an important conference programme. Energy and Climate Change Minister Ed Davey will deliver the keynote address during Ecobuild 2015, with other names lined-up to speak at the world's leading sustainable design, construction and energy event are RIBA Stirling Prize-winning architect Steve Tompkins of Haworth Tompkins, Sir John Armitt, former Chairman of the Olympic Delivery Authority, and Lord Deben, Chairman of the Committee on Climate Change.
Housed within two impressive arenas in the heart of the event, sponsored by Skanska and Lend Lease, the conference will include a future gazing first for the event; cross-party political discussion around the future of the sustainable built environment.
Dr Jon Kirkpatrick, Head of Sustainability – Europe, Lend Lease said: "People are the most valuable asset to every company, so health and wellbeing, social engagement and community investment all play a critical role in the delivery of sustainable buildings. Our industry has so much to learn and we're not going to do that on our own."
Sponsor Skanska's forward-thinking approach to sustainability is expressed through its Journey to Deep Green, where their ultimate aim is for projects to have near-zero impact on the environment.
Jennifer Clark, Director of Environment, Skanska UK, said: "As a leader in sustainable development, particularly urban regeneration, our philosophies are very much aligned with Ecobuild and we urge professionals from across the sustainable built environment to come along and witness the innovation taking place in our sector."
