19/10/2017 - Institute of Quarrying Centenary Conference & Industry Dinner

[fa icon="calendar"] 03/07/17 11:19 / by Dave Tebbutt

Join us in celebrating our 100-year anniversary at our special industry conference and dinner 19th October 2017 at The Belfry, Lichfield Road, Wishaw, Sutton Coldfield B76 9PR.


The conference will provide an uplifting and inspiring experience for industry professionals. Looking at themes that build on the recent success of the IQ Quarry Garden, we will look at how the industry creates environments that people want and aspire to be a part of.

Some of the questions the conference will seek to address are:

  • How do we create working environments that are safe but also encourage people to want to be part of the industry?
  • What benefits do organisations generate by creating cultures that puts employees at the heart of their business?
  • How is the industry looking to the future and being innovative with regards to managing natural resources and the environment?
  • Who are the next generation of leaders and what drives them to want to succeed within the industry?

Each of the sessions will use a variety of media to encourage full interaction and participation of delegates. Speakers will bring relevant examples and case studies from around globe as we examine these questions to see where we can share best practice with international colleagues.

It is our centenary year and we are delighted to be producing a conference that will reflect on the progress the industry has made in these areas over the last 100 years. More importantly, we will look to the future to enthuse delegates by what the industry has to offer and the exciting challenges ahead.
