EN:ACE 2020 Building for future generations CANCELLED

Efficiency North's 5th annual conference & exhibition : Thursday 9 July : Leeds Royal Armouries NOW happening Thursday 8 July 2021


POSTPONED till 8 July 2021

We are very disappointed to have to inform you that this year’s EN:ACE conference and exhibition scheduled for Thursday 9 July at Leeds Royal Armouries has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic. 

The health and safety of attendees is paramount to us and was the key factor in making this decision.  It is also, as you know, not yet clear when the restrictions of the current national health emergency will end.

We sincerely apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience caused.   We know many of you were looking forward to the day that is becoming a fixture on the annual calendar in our region’s construction and housing sector.  Thank you for your interest and especially to everyone who has already given so much support for this year’s event.

We are also pleased to tell you that the event planned for this year will now go ahead on Thursday 8 July 2021 at the Royal Armouries with keynote speaker George Clarke.

We wish you all well during this unprecedentedly difficult time and look forward to welcoming you to EN:ACE 2021.

Time is running out. We need to act fast to slow and reverse the effects of climate change on our planet.  Decisions we make now will have a lasting impact for generations to come.  So, how do we make the right choices in housing and construction here in Northern England today, that will have the most positive, lasting impact on tomorrow?
