He joins the business from Platinum 3D Consultants where he headed up all worldwide business development.

Speaking of the appointment Long said: “I’m genuinely thrilled to be joining Built Environment Networking. They’re well known throughout the UK for organising a vast array of events, conferences and webinars that focus on construction and property matters. The new aspects of the business that I will be developing are truly exciting and will provide new platforms for companies to promote their services to a more wider and engaged audience.”

In addition, three further names have joined the Built Environment Networking Team. Fahmida Nisa joins as a Meet the Buyer Conference Manager, Peter Eldritch is secured as the firms new Data Manager and Will Kemp has joined the business as a Conference Development Manager.

Speaking of their excitement to expand the team and recruit, owners Amanda and Keith Griffiths said: “The hospitality and events industry has seen unprecedented challenges – but the team has worked tirelessly to transition seamlessly to an online offering which is helping us once again expand the team. We play a unique role in facilitating discussions and connections, helping to bring new investment, development and economic growth to towns and cities across the UK – and these new appointments will enable us to continue playing a leading role in driving this growth.”
