Conference offers forum to drive new standards

The National Flood School is bringing together industry experts for the inaugural European Restoration Conference. Under the theme of ‘Environmental impact’, the conference takes place on 26 and 27 September 2012 at The Belfry, Birmingham.

The event will offer a platform for keynote speakers and European suppliers to address the most current and exciting developments and innovations within the restoration sector, including the relaunch of the new British Standard PAS 64 mitigation and recovery of water damaged buildings code of practice.

Among the guest speakers are the IICRC, internationally recognised as an independent standard setting certification body, which promotes high standards and ethics. Other speakers include representatives from the Financial Ombudsman Service, Zurich Insurance, the Flood Hazard Research Centre, HR Wallingford and the Scottish Flood Forum.

Chris Netherton, managing director of the National Flood School, said: “The purpose of this event is to bring together visionaries, decision makers and industry leaders to address the most current and exciting developments and innovations within the world of restoration. Under the subject of environmental impact, the conference will provide an opportunity to frame and drive standards and look at innovation, direction and impact within the industry. Each session will feature keynote speakers from leading organisations, together with experts from adjacent industries who are helping to define the importance of restoration. The event will also allow leading European suppliers to showcase the latest technology in the sector.”

A dedicated microsite has been created, featuring an online booking facility and in-depth information on the event, which can be accessed from the home page of the National Flood School website:
