FIS Partners with UK Construction Week Summits
FIS is the representative body for the £10 billion finishes and interiors sector in the UK are pleased to announce their partnership with UK Construction Week Summits. The partnership with UK Construction Week has gone from strength to strength over the last four years due to the synergies between the events UK Construction Week delivers and the projects, issues and subject matters that FIS are passionate about such as quality, wellbeing and mental health in construction that they wish to raise awareness, standards and educate the industry about.
FIS CEO, Iain McIlwee said “the construction industry is changing fast and the pace of change is accelerating, certainly faster that I have witnessed. It is vital that we continue to step back and reflect on this change and these summits are a valuable reflection point. In this we must accept that his is not just the digital age, but the age of transparency. Critical to a positive change in culture and profound change in our outputs is collaboration. We must embrace together every opportunity to learn from one another and be seeking opportunities to exchange knowledge and discuss innovation and so the industry can move forward together.”
UK Construction Week, Event Director, Nathan Garnett said "we set up UK Construction Summits because we could see major topics in the industry that require in depth knowledge sharing. We are delighted to partner with FIS as we feel a number of these topics are ones that FIS members also face as day to day challenges, such as staying ahead of the agenda on quality and understanding the complexities around wellbeing for the construction work force. The FIS support on these events by sharing their expertise will enhance our content and deliver more benefits for FIS delegates."
