The Scaffolding Association has officially announced the date and theme of the second annual ‘Scaffolding Conference’, welcoming both members and non-members from across the sector.

The event, being held at the Heart of England – Conference & Events Centre, will take place on 12th October 2023 and is expected to attract around 200 delegates from across all areas of the scaffolding and access sector including operations, managing directors, HR, compliance, risk management, procurement, technical and many others. 

The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Gaining the Advantage’ – a tailored programme to help give delegates the competitive edge in what is an intensely competitive market.

Details of speakers and sessions will be released over the coming months via the conference website and social media channels.

In addition to the detailed conference programme, the event will welcome market leaders to exhibit and showcase what’s new, innovative and relevant in the scaffolding and access sector – from HR and law to the latest product innovations. In order to ensure delegates and exhibitors have sufficient time to meet and greet, the Scaffolding Association has built-in two hours of dedicated networking time over the course of the day.

Robert Candy, Chief Executive of the Scaffolding Association said; “We were thrilled at the success of last year’s conference. It was the first event of its kind for the industry and the feedback we received demonstrates the appetite for it to become a permanent fixture in people’s calendars. With a programme built around the theme ‘Gaining the Advantage, we’d hope delegates come away with some practical tips and information to help them leap ahead of their business competitors.”

Early bird tickets for the event are now on sale and can be purchased via the website. Further updates on Scaffolding Conference 2023 will be posted on its social media pages and website;
