Activities at HOMES 2018

26 November 2018




The Housing Forum is pleased to announce its involvement at HOMES 2018.


HOMES will take place on through the 28-29 November at the Olympia in London. It is a premier event experience for those working at a high level in residential development, strategic asset management and procurement, and a forum for government and the sector to meet and discuss how to build more homes and ensure a high quality standard of housing.


The conference welcomes 150+ speakers and 4000 attendees each year. HOMES also co-hosts the National Leasehold Group conference and the National Sales Group conference.


Supported by Inside Housing, UKAA, RIBA, MHCLG and Homes England, HOMES is also the largest free educational opportunity available to housing providers, with the programme carefully curated by industry experts to enable visitors to return to the office and put their learning into practice.
