Facing Change Together – HAUC(UK) Convention 2021 image

HAUC(UK) has announced its Annual Convention which takes places online on 19th and 20th May 2021. The theme is ‘Facing Change Together’.

HAUC(UK)’s role in helping government to deliver ambitious targets has become even more important as the UK maps a way out of the turbulence caused by COVID-19. Right across government, there is increasing recognition for the vital role that street and road works play in the delivery of the UK’s infrastructure priorities.

The UK is on the cusp of an infrastructure revolution that will throw the industry under a spotlight, and this Convention will look at some of the key challenges (and opportunities) that are being faced.

The street and road works industry is well placed to deliver. As the membership and representative body for the industry, HAUC(UK) is supporting the acceleration of gigabit-capable broadband coverage, for example, and the decarbonisation of our economy.

Over two days and in four session, speakers at the Convention will address the ‘Big Challenges’, look at ‘What is Changing – and What’s New’, The Vision for Change’ and the ‘Role of Lane Rental’.

A key focus for this year’s Convention is HAUC(UK)’s five-year vision for street and roadworks and will examine:

1. Digitalisation
2. Innovation
3. Skills and workforce
4. Collaboration
5. Environment and decarbonisation.

The Convention will be streamed via a conference platform that lets attendees, speakers and sponsors interact with each other.

Registration and further information, including the agenda and information about sponsors is available on HAUC(UK) Convention website - www.geoplace.co.uk/news-events/events/hauc-convention-2021

The HAUC(UK) Convention Committee would like to warmly thank the event sponsors:
