See You In Budapest!


This is the week of the official ARGE annual conference and we look forward to welcoming you all in Budapest this Thursday and Friday, where the sustainability agenda will take centre stage.

ARGE has received approaches on how to develop and deliver to its members generic EDPs from three different European countries. The options open to ARGE and the opportunities that ARGE’s sustainability agenda can provide its members will all be presented and discussed at the conference. Importantly the conference will review and agree next steps for developing our agenda.

If you are heading to Budapest you will discover how ARGE can help you compete in a changing market place, as well as enjoying a guided tour of Budapest.

A presentation delivered by the CEN TC350 on sustainability in construction works and details of ARGE’s sustainability roadmap, are just some of the many conference highlights.

Don’t forget, if you’re not joining us in Budapest then all ARGE members and association members can access conference updates through LinkedIn. If you have not already connected, you can through following this link
