RICS Matrics West Midlands launch inaugural Summer Soiree to celebrate region’s young professionals

RICS Matrics West Midlands have launched a new professional networking dinner to unite young built environment professionals across the region.

Since RICS moved to Birmingham in 2018, the professional body has hosted a range of events to support professionals across the city and region, looking at how those working in the built environment will help deliver Birmingham as a sustainable 21st Century city.

With one of the youngest demographics in Europe, Birmingham’s built environment is a young, thriving sector and it is with that in mind that RICS Matrics West Midlands– the professional network for those new to the sector – are hosting their inaugural Summer Soiree in celebration of the newest talent in the sector.

Emily Knowles, RICS Matrics Birmingham Chair and recent appointment to the West Midlands Regional Board commented:

“This year, RICS Matrics celebrate a milestone in our history – our 135th anniversary. Supporting those new to the industry, whether they are graduates, students or apprentices is essential to ensure that we continue to diversify our industry and retain the new talent that is coming through. Birmingham is a young, vibrant city and as we set out to tackle new challenges including urbanisation, the relationships we build now will help us throughout our careers.

“The Summer Soiree, will build off the collaboration we are already seeing across the city with our professionals and offers affordable networking opportunities for those starting out in their career.”

The RICS Matrics West Midlands Summer Soiree – supported by headline sponsor Vail Williams – will take place on Thursday 11 July 2019 at Canalside at The Cube. Tickets are on sale and can be purchased at rics.org/wmsoiree2019
