Event description
Learning from the past to inform the future. The 2021 conference is a hybrid event taking place online and at various regional hubs.

About this event

Join BLF members and lime enthusiasts from across the world at this year’s Building Limes Online Conference. This exciting one-day event features a mix of pre-recorded and live content which will be aired from Exeter Cathedral, famed for its Gothic architecture.

To retain the social aspect of previous events, the BLF is hosting regional events on the 6th November to enable participants to join others to partake in tours, watch this year’s conference, share sessions, socialise and interact on the day. To join a regional event, book a hub ticket AND a place at the hub of your choice; to join online, book an online ticket. Details of the regional events will be updated periodically on the main conference section of the website https://www.buildinglimesforum.org.uk/events/2021-gathering/

Ian Prince, Chairman of the Building Limes Forum, is thrilled that the conference can go ahead in its new format.

“Whether you are planning to join us online from the comfort of your own home or in a group with other fellow lime enthusiasts, we cannot wait to welcome you to this year’s conference. Although we cannot all be together, we hope you enjoy this new online experience which promises to be a great day with a fantastic line up of speakers.”
