CIPR CAPSIG partners with Marketing in Construction Summit

Last year saw a series of negative headlines in the construction sector. Safety problems, quality issues, executive pay and high profile business failures have done huge damage to the sector’s reputation.

The fallout from these stories is shaping a number of responses from industry and government, and the next year promises to be an important time for the sector, especially with Brexit on the horizon.

It is for this reason that the CIPR’s Construction and Property Special Interest Group (CAPSIG) is partnering with the Marketing in Construction Summit, taking place 7 February in London. The event offers a chance for members to hear about the latest communications trends alongside examples of best practice.

Dan Gerrella, Chair of CAPSIG,
When specialising in a sector it’s important to do as much as you can to understand the issues that clients are facing so that our communications strategies are relevant and fit for purpose.

There are many construction-focused events throughout the year, but this one is specifically about communications. It’s a chance to hear case studies from peers, reflect on lessons learned and come together to discuss ways that we can all work to improve construction’s reputation.
Dan Gerrella, Chair of CAPSIG,
