Show Preview: The home front

27 – 29 JUNE


Throughout the UK, the housing sector is facing unprecedented challenges. From uncertainty in government funding, incoming new regulations, and the pressing need for more homes, to the equally pressing need to maintain and improve the homes we have while modernising procedures and services to meet the expectations and needs of tenants and residents. And that’s without mentioning external pressures such as the continuing cost of living crisis and the pressure on all other public sector services. 

That’s why, for Housing 2023, we have put together a fantastic programme of content that packs in lots of learning. With an abundance of thought-leaders and expert-thinkers joining us across three days, the event is an opportunity to come together with peers from across the sector to network and innovate. And through all of this, we’ll make sure improving professionalism is at the heart of every discussion, to ensure you continue to provide the best outcomes for your tenants and residents.
