The Housing Forum
National Conference




20 October 2020

About the Conference


An annual one-day event that shapes the housing agenda, the 2020 National Conference comes as a unique set of events reshapes our future – the impact of the Covid-19 crisis, the resetting of safety obligations, and the post-Brexit housing market.

As well as Q&A sessions there’s virtual conference tables where delegates can network on-line. An opportunity for you to participate throughout the day.

The conference is CPD certified.

What’s covered?

Hear from our many expert speakers giving their interpretations and opinion on how the  government’s programme for planning reform, local council devolution and building safety will impact on the Shape of our Future Housing

The whole-day event will start with a Plenary Session, followed by four consecutive Streams on Productivity; Partnership Working; Procurement; Quality and Standards.

What will I take away?

INSIGHTS: an up to date view of the housing market; its prospects and challenges from opinion leaders, government and through the members’ eyes, with results hot from the new Member Status Survey!

ATTITUDES TO INVESTMENT: an understanding of investment drivers, innovations and the operational changes brought in to keep housing delivery going.

PROCUREMENT: be the first to hear The Housing Forum’s recommendations for improving procurement, calling for a project vision document at the start of each procurement to guide delivery. Full guide to be published in the coming weeks.
