Housing 2019 falls at the same time as the Cricket World Cup meaning that delegates attending next year will benefit from a carnival atmosphere as Old Trafford hosts cricket matches before and during Housing 2019.
The event and city will be buzzing but as a result accommodation will book up quickly. However, we have negotiated a number of hotel rooms for this period for our delegates. These will be issued on a first come first serve basis so get in quick.
Housing will be held at Manchester Central between 25th and 27th June 2019.
