Delegate of the future

Invest in your staff with ‘Delegate of the Future’

The world of housing in 2018 is very different to when today’s housing leaders started out. Investing in people just starting out in the industry, and supporting them on their path to becoming future housing leaders is more important than ever.


Due to the success of previous years, we’re delighted to once again give more junior housing professionals from public sector organisations the opportunity to debate and discuss ideas with colleagues and learn from senior leaders, both inside and outside of the industry at housing’s flagship event.


Delegate of the Future encourages talented hand-picked (public sector) junior housing professionals to attend Housing 2018 by offering them a free delegate pass on Thursday 28th June, if they haven’t had the chance to attend previously.


Housing 2018 would like to invite you to give your staff the opportunity to meet new people, learn from other’s experience, and bring that knowledge back to your organisation by nominating them for a free conference pass.
