The Challenge of Change - National Conference 2019 Programme

02 April 2019

National Conference 2019

 

The Housing Forum's 2019 National Conference will explore how the housing industry has risen to the challenge of increased demand and changing expectations - where quality outcomes and partnership working achieved success.

 

For over 20 years The Housing Forum has been associated with a commitment to quality and innovation in the affordable housing space. Our National Conference is our flagship event, attracted senior leaders from landlords, local authorities, contractors, developers, architects, consultants, manufacturers and suppliers.

 

The 2019 conference promises to be bigger and better than ever - taking place in the heart of Wembley Park, it will feature keynote speeches, breakout sessions, a walking tour of housing development and urban regeneration in the area and an evening drinks reception.
