Newly elected London Assembly member Hina Bokhari will be joining Floodex to talk about her work holding the Mayor of London to account on flooding.

Her forthcoming talk at Floodex is promoted by the exhibition organisers as being interesting particularly given how important local government support can be to getting solutions in on the ground.

Floodex, co-located with The National Drainage Show, is taking place next week, 9th–10th November at ExCel London. The event is free to register online here or attend on the day. A downloadable show guide is available here : www.floodex.co.uk/downloadable-show-guide
