The Economics of Architecture in the North East – a look ahead to 202003/12/19

We don’t know what the UK’s relationship with the EU will be in December, but RIBA North East are bringing together some of the region’s experts to assess the economic situation, and to outline what we might expect in 2020 and beyond.

In an interactive breakfast briefing, we will be exploring the national and regional economy’s future with a presentation form the Bank of England (with a close look at our construction sector). We’ll also have insight into the architectural market from our region’s co-chairs, along with an exploration of the new findings of the 2019 RIBA Benchmarking report from the RIBA Head of Economic Research.
