The Construction News Summit is the premier event for the leaders of construction, giving them high-level networking opportunities, political clarity and influence and leads on new business.

Now in its second year, the event provides insight from major political figures, public and private clients, developers, investors and economists. It features discussions with CEOs from the top contractors and practical breakout sessions for construction leaders and suppliers.

As the construction market recovers, all eyes are on the 2015 general election and the ways that the next government will shape the future of the industry. The Summit will provide a forum to influence Britain's leading politicians and give you access to the clients who will dominate construction over the next five years and beyond.
