Build for the Future: East Midlands

Build for the Future: East Midlands

Connecting the construction, heritage, property & sustainability businesses.

Build for the Future: East Midlands is back for 2023!

The annual event is returning for its fourth year on Tuesday 23rd May 2023 at the Lincolnshire Showground, following the successful events in 2020, 2021 & 2022, which have connected hundreds of businesses.

Hosted by Heritage Lincolnshire and Archaeological Project Services and working in partnership with the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce this event has already grown significantly from the small event that started in February 2020.

The annual event is directly marketed and aimed at those within the Construction, Property, Heritage, Sustainability and Trade Industries across the East Midlands and its goal is to become the biggest in this UK region for supporting and connecting businesses.

To encourage more businesses to connect and network at the event, new areas are being introduced for the 2023 event which include:

– 60 + exhibitors from across the industry

– Local Authorities from Lincolnshire and boarding counties.

– 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.

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.

Event Organiser, Hannah Thompson says, “Connecting businesses is so important and to keep the work available within our local areas is vital. To be able to bring together local businesses and enable them to network, exhibit and learn all under one roof is just amazing. We wanted to make sure both events are accessible to all sizes of businesses, encourage support from national bodies and we want to continue that ethos as we grow even bigger year on year. We are really looking forward to bringing this event back to the Showground, bigger and better for 2023.”
