Housing 2019, the Chartered Institute of Housing’s annual event and Europe’s largest housing festival, takes place annually in June in Manchester. With 400 speakers, 400 key exhibitors, 10 streams of innovative content and a footfall of over 12,000 decision makers across three days - it is the biggest meeting place for the whole housing sector. Ranked as a global leader for the delegate experience, Housing has taken place for 70 years in the UK and provides a platform for key stakeholders to come together to discuss, debate, partner, learn and improve the lives of the people we house.
In 2019, alongside our Ministerial address, keynotes and masterclasses, we will focus on red hot topics including affordability, business transformation, leadership, technology, offsite construction, placemaking, fire safety, finance, politics and, of course, housing management, welfare reform and homelessness. Plus, we start the week with the prestigious Housing Heroes awards, host over 60 social events and welcome back our award-winning fringe event - the audience dictate the agenda and PowerPoint is banned!
Housing is the must-attend event for local authorities, housing associations, key partners and suppliers, government, housebuilders and developers. It brings the sector together to drive forward collectively.
Housing will be held at Manchester Central between 25th and 27th June 2019.

"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."
