Building the Future: National Conference Report 2018


Thank you to all of the housing and construction professionals who attended our 2018 Conference: ‘Building The Future’. The Housing Forum have hosted a National Conference every year for the past two decades. It is the major event in our annual programme.


We have compiled a report for our 2018 National Conference that you can download below, and we are also grateful for the support of our conference sponsors, AMCM Group, PRP and Hawkins\Brown.


Attendees at this year’s conference enjoyed a full programme of expert speakers from across government and industry, followed by a walking tour around schemes surrounding the former Olympic site by Queen Elizabeth Park, showcasing projects by Hawkins\Brown. PRP, Taylor Wimpey and Hill Group.


The central theme of the conference was connectivity - of people - of places - of ideas - of skills - and how in combination, we might shape future communities. We hope all those that attended enjoyed the day and were inspired by the ideas presented.


For those who attended, and for those who weren’t able to attend this year, we hope to see you at next year’s conference on 9 May 2019 in Wembley.


- Shelagh Grant, Chief Executive, The Housing Forum
