Stephen Fry to join the building and construction industry at Ecobuild

Stephen Fry has been announced as the special guest at the UK’s largest show dedicated to construction and energy, Ecobuild 2016.

The erudite writer, actor and campaigner joins a lineup of industry leaders and experts and will host the BD Architect of the Year Awards.

Fry will be interviewed by broadcaster Will Gompertz at the culmination of the day’s conference programme on Wednesday 9 March.

The audience can expect to hear the actor’s forthright and entertaining views and insights around issues close to his heart – areas that will resonate with the  Ecobuild audience. The session will afford audience members a rare opportunity to ask questions in a Q&A session.

Martin Hurn, Director of Ecobuild, said:

“Stephen personifies the spirit of Ecobuild to inform, entertain and inspire the industry. He is the most exciting speaker we have welcomed in Ecobuild’s history of thought leadership. We couldn’t have hoped for a better conclusion to what promises to be a fascinating day on the Ecobuild Arena.”

After the discussion, Fry will go on to host the prestigious BD Architect of the Year Awards dinner held at ExCeL that evening.

Recognising excellence across 13 categories, the awards celebrate the very best practices currently operating in the UK.
