The British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom Installation (BiKBBI) has confirmed that it has received the green light to push ahead with plans for its Annual Conference on 1st February 2022.
The new-format annual conference, sponsored by Senstec, Quooker and Hippo, is set to address some of the industry’s most prominent challenges, with an overarching theme of workforce and environmental sustainability within the installation sector. Opening the event, which is being held at The Houses of Parliament, will be Conservative MP for South Basildon & East Thurrock and BiKBBI Patron Stephen Metcalfe.
Both the Government and the opposition will be represented, with Parliamentary Under Secretary of State in the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Paul Scully MP and Labour’s Shadow Business Minister, Seema Malhotra MP, both confirmed to speak.
Industry speakers include Quooker MD Stephen Johnson, together with a panel discussion from leading industry figureheads. Author, motivational speaker and former member of The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, The Hon Stuart Lawrence, will also address how the industry can develop a diverse future workforce.
The Annual Conference will precede the industry’s first ever Awards ceremony dedicated to the sector, which is set to celebrate success and excellence within KBB installation. Shortlisted installers and installation businesses from across the UK will have their achievements acknowledged, as well as well-known brands including John Lewis & Partners, Wren and Victoria Plum in the Retailer of the Year category. Limited tickets are available for the Awards ceremony here.
