The RIBA is to hold a two-day national conference in June in what is hoped will be the first of a regular series. It will take place at the Interbuild exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham on 11-12 June, and will be organised in association with the AJ. The conference will be free to RIBA members (£250 per day to others), and will include a wide range of CPD seminars on technical and practice matters.
In addition, the announcement of the AJ/RIBA Awards will take place at a dinner on 11 June. Features will include '50/50', where leading names in architecture and construction review the buildings, products and technologies of the past 50 years and make predictions about the future.
