I-Construct has put together a series of in-person roadshows to support businesses and strengthen the supply chain throughout Kent, Essex and East Sussex. You can hear directly from Tier 1 contractors, major projects, network with other businesses, and learn how our new supply chain collaboration platform can help you find new growth opportunities!

South Essex Roadshow Speakers

Our roadshow at Orsett Hall will feature Urban Catalyst's Executive Chairman Ken Dytor speaking about Purfleet Regeneration, the £1.3billion major project in Thurrock where a total of 2,200 construction jobs are expected to be created.

We'll also be joined by Erin Law, Commercial Manager – UK Paper Hub & Freeports from Forth Ports from Thames Freeport, the £4.5billion project encompassing the ports of London Gateway and Tilbury and part of the Ford site in Dagenham, as she talks about the opportunities connected to this major project.

You'll hear from Kirsty O'Connell, Commercial Services Manager at Basildon Borough Council, about their procurement process and how to win business with their Local Authority.

The line up will include a session from Warren Salmons, Business Development Manager for Tier 1 contractor Morgan Sindall East, discussing the most pressing issues in the sector, as well as outlining current opportunities throughout Kent and Essex.  

Plus I-Construct will be discussing our new supply chain collaboration platform, which will help businesses develop local and regional supply chains around major construction projects.
