Supported by Willmott Dixon
Good quality housing is critical to the nation’s wellbeing. So having the right people at the helm is vital. But at a time of growing social inequality, environmental crisis and squeezed public sector finances, the skills that those in the housing sector will need are changing. At Willmott Dixon, we understand the challenge! The wider construction industry is facing its own significant skills gap and we often find ourselves competing for talent with other sectors. What we are looking for in our future leaders are values and we need people who have:
We think this is a winning formula. That’s why we are proud to support the ‘Delegate of the Future’ campaign.
The Delegate of the Future experience gives up-and-coming housing people their first taste of what Housing is like; an invaluable learning experience that sends you away from the conference wanting to change the world as soon as you get back to work!
Whether you’re a seasoned conference goer, or a complete newbie, walking into the exhibition space at CIH Housing for the first time can be a bit mind-blowing. There’s so much to see, hear and do. So many new people to meet, discussions to have, things to learn and inspiration to gain. That’s without even thinking about where you can get a cheeky free cup of tea!
This year, CIH Futures have teamed up with CIH and Ocean Media to make the DOTF experience bigger and better than ever:
To all you CEOs and directors with colleagues that you want to develop and inspire, get them registered! Give them a chance to lift up from the day job and think outside the box and we guarantee they’ll come back to work buzzing with ideas.
If you work in housing, this is a perfect opportunity for some CPD, and the best chance you’ll have this year to immerse yourself in sessions about all the hot topics, and hear from brilliant people who are passionate about what they do – people just like you!
We can’t wait to meet you.

"We found Housing 2019 to be a highly effective event and a great place to launch our new system. Overall the exhibition provided high quality leads and consistently high footfall throughout the three days. We were so impressed, that in 2020 we have decided to increase our stand size from 36m2 to 108m2"

"The experience is a unique mix of networking, fun and learning. I have never experienced such a broad range of forward-thinking ways of hosting and presenting such as the silent talks that were happening around the venue and the model homes"
"In my opinion, it is the single most important housing event of the year where all serious sector leaders convene. To miss the event you run the risk of falling behind the leading pack."
