Ocean Media Group has been a trusted partner to the housing sector for decades and we will continue to be a responsible media organisation throughout these unprecedented times for our community. Please be assured that our number one priority is to protect the wellbeing of all our speakers, stakeholders, visitors, exhibitors, delegates and staff members and ultimately those we provide homes for.
Following an extensive programme of virtual events in 2020 and early 2021, we have taken the decision to revert to a face-to-face event at Manchester Central this year on 7-9 September 2021.
The Prime Minister’s announcement of a roadmap to fully easing restrictions by 21 June alongside the steps Manchester Central has taken as a venue and, the positive Government vaccination campaign, we are confident that Housing 2021 will be an enjoyable and safe experience for all.
Highlighted below are some of the efforts that Manchester Central are working towards prior to opening - as time progresses, we will know more about how much, or little, of this will be needed, but we will endeavour to keep our attendees updated on the latest situation.
Should it be required Manchester Central have prepared a comprehensive plan to ensure the safety of their visitors and staff including:
1. Physical distancing
2. Enhanced hygiene, cleaning and health & safety measures
3. Information and training
4. Comprehensive communications
Please contact a member of the team for more detail on the proposals.
Thank you for your support for Housing 2021 and we look forward to welcoming you back to Manchester in September. The team are all available with any queries you may have and can be contacted as follows:
"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."
