Expert speakers announced at Eco Technology Show

The organisers of the third Eco Technology Show, which takes place at the Brighton Centre 26-27 June, have unveiled a powerful speaker line up that goes beyond wishful thinking and offers practical information on how to install and use energy saving technology; ideal for those in construction, heating and ventilation, building and architecture.

An extensive conference programme of over 60 seminars kicks off with a keynote speech from Greg Barker MP, Minister of State for Energy and Climate Change who will reaffirm the government’s commitment to reaping the economic benefits of shifting to a lower carbon economy; a subject at the heart of the Show’s agenda.

The completely free seminar programme sessions will cover legislation, funding and incentives and the major discussion points on energy management, build, water and waste, transport, technology & resource efficiency.

A major endorsement of the quality for the exhibitors and speakers comes from representatives of the UK’s Sustainable Cities Network, who have chosen the Eco Technology Show for their summer meeting.

Key highlights of the conference programme for construction, heating and ventilation, building and architecture professionals include:

  • A review of the Government’s ‘Green Deal’ scheme by the Energy Saving Trust will help contractors get the most out of this unique incentive.
