A thoroughly worthwhile two days of our time, wonderfully organised event with high quality delegates that allows us to pitch our companies products and ethos in an informal yet businesslike environment. A fantastic networking and lead sourcing event.

video: education building forum 2015

The education building forum is the leading event for those involved in the supply, design, build and management of all types of education facilities.

Each year we bring together the UK’s leading architects, contractors, project managers, local authority trusts, school leaders and estate departments looking to enhance their schemes and improve their supply chain. The seminar programme includes best practice and innovations in the sector and the 2015 event saw over six hundred 1-2-1 business meetings take place.

The ebf is the perfect platform for companies to meet and do business with those at the forefront of the education sector, delegates are drawn from academies, free schools, primary and secondary schools, universities, SEN and HE. If you’re delivering facilities in education this is a must attend combining all the ingredients necessary to enable you to deliver project excellence.

Our thanks go to everyone who attended the 2015 event including our speakers; Ann Bodkin, Head of Design & Specification of the Education Funding Agency, Jim Brunt Land Director of Willmott Dixon, Richard Gawthorpe Director of NPS Group, and Tim Byles, CEO of Cornerstone Property Assets.

We're delighted that we raised over £1,000 at our Gala Dinner for the NSPCC. We look forward to welcoming you to next year’s event.

A great opportunity to do business
