About LABSS Annual Conference 2022

Social Media

LABSS are pleased to announce that our 2022 conference will be held on Friday 16th September at the V&A, Dundee.

After the success of the 2019 LABSS AGM & Conference held at Peebles Hydro it was the intention of LABSS to host the next AGM & Conference in May 2020. After what has undoubtedly been a challenging 2 years for everyone we are now finally in a position to host such an event and look forward to welcoming you all back to meet in person.

Having already held the 2022 AGM in May, the conference will be centred around dissemination from our guest speakers, to be announced shortly, and the presentation of the LABSS and Building Standards Division awards. The V&A Dundee is a spectacular building designed by world renowned award winning Architect Kengo Kuma & Associates and is easily accessible by public transport for most of Scotland.

Attendance is open to all LABSS members.

We look forward to hosting members for what will undoubtedly be an insightful and memorable event.
