The IQ webinar will address key industry issues including the planning process, Brexit and infrastructure projects
The final 2018 Institute of Quarrying
(IQ) Academy ‘Lunch & Learn’ webinar aims to provide a market-based view of the aggregates sector.
Hosted by Andy Sales, director of UK specialist market research consultancy BDS Marketing Research, the webinar called ‘The Aggregates Industry – A Market Perspective' takes place on Thursday 20 December between 12:30-13:00.
Sales commented: “The aggregates industry plays a pivotal and fundamental role in enabling the government and commercial companies to deliver planned schemes for infrastructure, housing, retail, industrial and all other construction sectors. Without an adequate and well-planned source of aggregates and a national network of producing companies, this would be impossible to deliver."
He added that the webinar is intended to help create an awareness of historical trends in the aggregates industry marketplace, the leading producers and how they have evolved. It will also address key industry issues including the planning process, Brexit and infrastructure projects.
IQ chief executive officer James Thorne said: “Since launching our highly popular ‘Lunch & Learn’ programme at the beginning of this year, we’ve received nothing but positive feedback. Sessions offer great continuing professional development opportunities (CPD) and are a compact education resource covering issues in the mineral extraction industry.
“As the 2018 series comes to a close with industry expert Andy Sales, we’re delighted to confirm that ‘Lunch & Learn’ will return in the New Year with sessions already in the pipeline.”
