NIA and NHDG Parliamentary Reception

NIA and NHDG members are invited, by invitation only, to join our collaborative NIA and NHDG Parliamentary Reception on Wednesday 13 December 2023 at the prestigious House of Lords.

The event will provide a unique opportunity for key industry stakeholders and wider supply chain to meet with one another and to meet DESNZ officials and policy makers. It is free for members of each organisation.

There will be several attractive sponsorship packages available which will be shared shortly.
