Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce has confirmed that Government chief construction adviser, Peter Hansford, will speak at this year’s Construction Summit on 15 July at The Point, Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground.

The event is expected to attract 500 delegates to debate issues affecting the industry such as skills and training, procurement and innovation.
