ACE Annual Conference

The battle over the importance of infrastructure has been won. The key now will be how the UK’s future infrastructure will integrate communities and allow them to take advantage of the opportunities they open up. ACE’s 2014 Annual Conference explores these key challenges and opportunities, investigating the ways in which infrastructure will link people with jobs, training, and resources if the UK is to succeed. Sessions will look at this from the transport and utilities angles, as well as how the Devolved Nations and Regions are tackling this subject.
