announces conference to help fix Britain’s ‘broken’ construction industry announces conference to help fix Britain’s ‘broken’ construction industry has announced plans to hold a first of its kind conference on 7th June in Nottingham to help turn around the dire state of the construction industry.

The company, which is geared towards helping specialist contractors in areas such as late payments and combating unfair treatment from main contractors, has already made headlines by exposing the extent of the payment abuse in the construction industry, with one of its members, who will be speaking at the conference, becoming somewhat of a hero after showing that standing up to main contractors is possible and worthwhile. A highlight of the conference will be the launch of the Fair Treatment Charter.

Construction contracts consultant and founder of Barry Ashmore said, ‘Specialist contracting in the UK is broken, and this conference is about what we as an industry can do to fix it.’ Barry himself spent 20 years as an electrical contractor before going into consulting, a capacity which has allowed him to help specialist contractors with industry issues for the past 20 years.

Barry is recognised as an industry expert on the matter of late payments and is honoured to have been requested to speak on a panel for an ‘all party inquiry into late payments to small businesses’ on 23rd April held at the Houses of Parliament.

‘I am seeing far too many good specialist contractors being crushed in this economy because they have not got access to the proven strategies for commercial and contractual security and new business generation,’ said Barry, and he plans to turn that around with this half day conference.

The conference promises to be a must attend event for specialist contractors in the construction industry, as Barry and other industry experts will give valuable and exclusive advice and insights on how to avoid being caught out by unethical contracts and unfair payment terms, as well as information on how to grow your business in any economic climate.

Held on 7th June in Notttingham’s Novotel, just off J25 of the M1, this conference has limited spaces so booking early is essential.
