New and exclusive

The Employer Roadshow gives you the chance to take a sneak peek at some of your region’s most exciting construction projects. Spend the morning meeting the people who matter, celebrating success stories, and catching up over breakfast with your peers and colleagues.

With nearly 20 venues to choose from across the country, why not join us this autumn?

At the Employer Roadshow, you can:

  • Ask for skills and training advice from those in the know
  • Find out about brilliant new business opportunities
  • Learn how to make the most of grants and funding
  • Network and share ideas with other employers and enterprise partnerships
  • Get to know your local CITB team

Your event, your agenda

This year, our free industry-shaping event has been designed specifically with you in mind. It’s packed with localised content, including inspirational talks from employers and up-to-date information about projects in your area. And it’s more interactive than ever before, so you can really get involved and share your thoughts. Early registrations have helped shape the agenda by telling us what you want to see, hear and find out about.

Get Involved

Don’t forget to download the free event app. Not only will it keep you in the know about what’s going on but you can also use it to pose questions to speakers in advance and interact with fellow attendees on the day.

Training Provider Events

We’re also running Training Provider events on the same day as some of our Employer Roadshows. These events run from 1pm until 4:30pm, with a delicious lunch served beforehand. The content covered at both events is different, so if you’re also a training provider or know somebody who would be interested, visit the Training Provider Event page to find out more and register for an event near you.
