The Guild Annual Conference - Doing Things Differently

Focusing on doing things differently, this year's conference will focus on the themes of sustainability, innovation, planning, technology and design in the pipeline industry PLUS the highly anticipated PDN National Presentation Competition Final!




The Guild’s annual conference is now in its seventh year. The only conference to focus on expanding the knowledge and network of developing professionals in the pipeline industry, this year’s event looks at how the industry will need to change to meet the new demands of the future – from infrastructure challenges and pinch points to embracing digital innovation and technology. Featuring a key note address from Jon Butterworth, CEO of National Grid Ventures, and a range of talks focusing on planning, sustainability, innovation, technology and design, it’s the perfect place to expand your professional knowledge. Suitable for all professionals from those new to the industry to longstanding members wanting to see how things could change in the future. Keep checking here for more details on the speakers as they confirm.



The event also includes the ever popular PDN National Presentation Competition Final – come and support your PDN regional winners as they compete for that £500 prize.


Networking is a key part of the event, so following the close of the conference we will host a drinks reception for those who can stay.


Spaces are limited, so do book to secure your spot.


Thanks to our sponsors from The Murphy Group, Boskalis, TSS Infrastructure, Mace Group, Radius Subterra, DNV GL and Enzen. Three sponsorship opportunities remain which includes your logo on all event promotion, a stand at the event and a free delegate place to the conference.


The Conference will finish at 4.30pm with a Networking Reception after the event.
