A season of national conferences aimed at enhancing architects' skills and business prospects has been announced today by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).
Commencing in September, the RIBA Conferences 2011 will focus upon key areas of practice, including conservation, housing, planning and localism, low carbon design, as well as business skills. The programmes will provide a platform for senior Government spokespersons, public figures, forward thinking experts and respected practitioners in their field to share their knowledge and expertise, whilst workshops on specific technical, legislative and specialist topics with additional linked ‘fringe’ and awards events provide further opportunities for delegates to engage, broaden their networks and prospects.
Speaking today, RIBA Chief Executive Harry Rich said:
'I am delighted to announce the RIBA's forthcoming programme of national conferences, which look at some of the biggest challenges and opportunities facing the profession and the UK today. I hope that many architects and related professionals will be able to join in what promises to be a valuable and insightful series of events.'
