What’s next for housing construction?

The current and forecasted economic position of the UK and the consequences for us and our industry.

  • Key findings from five inspirational speakers
  • Fresh ideas to transform the future of housing
  • New connections and exciting relationships formed


“All UK industries face important challenges in the years ahead and housing construction is certainly no exception. I am passionate about bringing change, about creating places for people to live, work and play – about delivering high quality housing and the infrastructure needed to support these new communities.

“That’s why it is so important to me to be able to bring you all together in one room; to hear our experts, to gain valuable knowledge, and to understand the part we can all play in working together to face the issues challenging our industry today and in the future. It’s about making a difference.”
