In an interactive breakfast briefing, we will be exploring the national and regional economy’s future with a presentation from the Bank of England (with a close look at our construction sector). We’ll also have insight into the architectural market from our region’s co-chairs, along with an exploration of the new findings of the 2019 RIBA Benchmarking report from the RIBA Head of Economic Research.
