There are specific sessions around the economy, affordability and leadership and delegates can also take the opportunity to speak to and hear from tenants at a continuing time of change. We will also welcome addresses from the UK’s leading political figures in the housing sector.
Our Housing Management stream provides focused sessions, offering insights and best practice for the main issues and opportunities for the housing sector. The Housing Management stream will include sessions on building safety, professionalising the sector, homelessness and mental illness.

"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."
