TRADA's annual flagship event, which usually receives around 200 delegates, is going online for the first time ever – and it is free for all staff members working for a current member company.


We are delighted to host the Better Timber Buildings conference for another year running. Although not how we might have envisioned it due to the pandemic, we are hopeful to see many more of you in attendance for our first ever digital conference.


This year, the conference will be split into two digestible two-hour chunks. Part 1, focusing on fire and timber, will take place on 5 November 2020; and part 2, which delves into the durability of timber and CLT, will take place on 11 November 2020.


Rupert Scott, TRADA’s membership and marketing manager, says: ‘These are two of the most important topics within our industry. In both cases we will pick up where we left off last year, and provide an informative, up-to-date summary of the current state of play. A lot of progress has been made in these areas since our last conference, so don’t miss out.


‘We are also pleased to announce that the digital conference will now be free to attend for all staff members working for a current member company. This is to convey our thanks for the continued support in such turbulent times’.


Non-members will be able to book for £30 +VAT per session. (It might make sense to take TRADA membership today! Contact our membership team on 01494 569603 to enquire.)
