New for 2023!

 

‘Meet the Buyer’ event hosted by Supply Chain Software company, Local Supply Chain who have successfully grown a network of thousands of businesses through collaboration across frameworks, projects, procurements and supply chain.

CPD led talks and seminars throughout the event to develop learning and understanding within the industry.

The Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce Construction and Property Network event will continue which attracted over 80 businesses in attendance in 2022.

Local authorities will be exhibiting to inform about their latest economic growth and development programmes throughout the East Midlands and how businesses can get involved.

Practical demonstrations of the latest equipment and technological advances in the industry such as geophysics equipment.

...And Our New Sister Event

To compliment Build for the Future and to keep in line with Heritage Lincolnshire's  charity mission, 2023 will see the introduction of a brand new sister event ‘Heritage for the Future; East Midlands.’

This event has been created to encourage local businesses to find out more about saving their local heritage and how they can support local community groups and organisations.  A ‘Meet the Funder’ event will welcome some of the national bodies to talk to people about how to get funding and encourage new businesses to become involved as contractors, as well as professional bodies from across the UK in all industries and membership organisations.

The CPD Talks and seminar programme will run alongside Build for the Future’s with a heritage led aspect, opening up the heritage world for anyone to get involved.

Practical demonstrations of traditional heritage skills will be on display and local colleges and universities will be encouraged to come along to have a go and find out how they can get involved in the local industry.

This annual event is directly marketed and aimed at those within the Construction, Property, Heritage, Sustainability and Trade Industries across the East Midlands.

The main aim is to connect businesses together within these industries, to ensure that they are accessible to businesses of all sizes and capacity.

Prices are below the average price to exhibit at an event such as this and we are hoping to draw in attendees from across the East Midlands area by working with some key partners and influencers in the industry.

Why are we holding this Exhibition?

With the current economic climate affecting the Construction industry and the uncertainty of Brexit and now post-Covid, we wanted to bring businesses together in the East Midlands area to facilitate collaborative working, using local services and like-minded business people.

Being a small county-wide charity, we have some great assets and a strong, highly qualified and dedicated team. However this doesn’t always reflect in our marketing of the company due to budget constraints. It does not mean that we are unable to do the job, or less skilled, purely that we cannot shout about what we do as loudly as others. How many other businesses are in the same position? We want to put as many businesses as possible on a level playing field, to showcase what their qualities and services are, and how we can all work together.

For more information on sponsorship and exhibiting please contact hannah.thompson@heritagelincolnshire.org or download the pack below.

To attend the day as a delegate is free of charge and booking is essential.

Why should you take part?

We are returning for our third event in 2023, following the successful events in February 2020, September 2021 and May 2022.
