Breakfast Briefings


Breakfast Briefings from The Housing Forum focus on industry initiatives and policy issues that may impact the housing and construction sector.


These briefings provide an opportunity to proactively examine regulatory changes and reflect issues back to government. The events are also a forum to discuss emerging industry topics and consider the bigger picture.


Hosted in London and regional cities, these cross-sector panel events are typically attended by members of The Housing Forum, national and local government, academics and industry influencers.
