Beer and Building Product Specification Festival

Beer and Building Product Specification Festival

MSA Sponsors Dacatie (Quantum Profile Systems Ltd) is hosting a unique FREE event for Architects and Specifiers on Thursday 14th July 2022, from 3pm until 10.30pm. It will give those in attendance the chance to learn about the very latest building product developments in the construction industry, and enjoy an evening of networking. Free transport will also be available to and from Manchester’s Northern Quarter.

There will be an afternoon of focused RIBA CPDs, an RIBA accredited Lean factory tour, and an exhibition from leading building product manufacturers. There will also be a free bar and hog roast (plus veggie option) in the evening.

Several leading building product manufacturers will be offering 20-minute-long, focused CPDs which will earn CPD points for our guests. Attendees will be offered an RIBA assessed tour of QPSL’s factory, which will allow them to observe its Lean manufacturing techniques in practice. There will also be an exhibition area where you can speak directly to a range of manufacturers.

In the evening there will be a selection of drinks available at the free bar. Guests will be served a buffet, the centrepiece of which will be a whole hog roast with all the trimmings. There will also be vegan and vegetarian options available.

Entertainment will be provided by live performances from various musical artists including Pressure Drop, a Manchester-based Reggae and Ska street band. For those who would like to take advantage of the refreshments, free transport is available on the day. There will be a bus to pick people up from the Northern Quarter in Manchester at 2.15pm and to drop people back there at 10.30pm.
