We’re delighted to announce the NEC Users’ Group Annual Seminar 2018, will take place on Wednesday 20 June at the County Hall, London.

The annual seminar is always the biggest event in the NEC calendar, gathering NEC users from all over the world to network and discuss best practice. This year we'll also be celebrating NEC's 25th anniversary.

The conference will be opened by Dr. David Hancock, NEC Users’ Group Chair and Construction Director for the Infrastructure and Projects Authority at the Cabinet Office. The keynote address will be delivered by Lord Adonis, Labour peer and previous Chair of the National Infrastructure Committee.

One year after the launch of NEC4, we’ll look into the feedback on the new suite and we’ll feature news from early adopters.

Delegates will also have the opportunity to choose between a variety of practical workshop sessions.

As usual, we will announce the winners of the NEC Awards 2018 at the annual seminar. Find out more and submit your entry here > 

More details about the event will be published soon. Keep an eye out!
