Popular television presenter to host Construction Summit 2024: Building a Sustainable Future

20 June 2024

East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Hull City Council are joining forces to stage a Construction Summit for businesses from across the sector, hosted by the popular television presenter and DIY expert Mark Millar.


Taking place next Thursday, 27 June, from 8.30am to 1pm, at the MKM Stadium in Hull, the summit will focus on the themes of sustainability, efficiency and growth.

Event host Mark Millar is best known for his roles in DIY SOS, Build Your Dream Home in the Country and Dream Kitchens and Bathrooms, but also appears on Fix Radio’s property development show, Building Ideas.

The DIY expert will lead a varied programme of insightful discussions, inspiring sessions and practical workshops, all aimed at helping businesses to grow, enhance their offering and win new contracts. Approaches to environmentally responsible construction; insights into the procurement process from both sides; and methods of streamlining construction business operations and boosting productivity are among the topics that will be covered.

Attendees will also have plenty of opportunity to engage directly with procurement teams from key national and regional organisations, including Kier, Sewells and Hobson & Porter, as well as East Riding of Yorkshire Council, which will be represented by Construction Framework Manager Stefanie Wright, and Hull City Council’s Mark Homersham.

Mark Millar said: “I’m delighted to have been asked to host this exciting event for businesses in the construction sector. Those who attend will benefit from the latest knowledge on industry trends and developments; information about new opportunities and forthcoming major projects; an increased awareness of local supply chains and opportunities for collaboration; insights into the supply chain network and how to navigate the market; exclusive 'meet the buyer' sessions; and strategies for improving their operational efficiency and sustainability. If you work in construction, this is too good an opportunity to miss, so do come and join us by booking your free place as soon as possible."

The Construction Summit 2024 is suitable for construction businesses of all sizes from across the Hull and East Yorkshire area that are looking to grow, increase their efficiency and make their operation more sustainable.
