My three favourite broadcasters will be hosting UK Construction Week 6 11 October at the NEC in Birmingham.
Influential broadcast journalists John Humphreys, Krishnan Guru-Murthy and Steph McGovern will help keep discussions on key industry issues on track at this major UK event.

I have been invited to Paris to help judge the Innovation Awards at Batimat and to report on the worlds top construction andamp; architecture trade show that attracts over 300k visitors including 32k architects.
