The latest news from the Stone Industry
Crowds outside the Natural Stone Show at ExCeL London last time. Avoid the queues and register online.
Architect and television presenter George Clarke cut the ribbon at the main entrance of the show and proceeded to host a heavyweight panel discussion on the main stage centred on Chancellor George Osborne’s quote that the UK doesn’t “train enough or build enough or invest enough”. Debating how to boost construction productivity, investment and training, the panel included Adrian Belton, Chief Executive of the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), Dr Diana Montgomery, Chief Executive of the Construction Products Association (CPA), Paul Nash, President of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), and David Hancock, Head of Construction at the Cabinet Office.
