  • As the number of young professionals working on international projects and travelling abroad is now higher than ever before, this conference is as much for them as it is for their bosses, and they should be encouraged to register – under 35’s benefit from a reduced Progress Network rate.

  • A growing number of Engineering and Consultancy practices are involved in projects or contracts overseas, either following key clients to international markets or as a strategy to develop a wider diversity of global relationships. The resultant matrix of insurance, legal and regulatory considerations requires the support of an informed insurance adviser with experience and proven solutions. Having worked closely with clients with an international profile and workload for several generations, Griffiths & Armour have supported this major growth area, through the reliable delivery of a flexible and responsive service. We are delighted to support the ACE International conference.
