Homes UK is returning to the London Excel on 23-24 November, and is intended to provide a ‘safe and timely’ opportunity for the housing sector to collaborate and plan for a post-pandemic future.
From discussing how to revive housebuilding to establishing a ‘new normal’ for property management and supporting tenants through the recovery, Homes UK is an exciting free learning and networking opportunity for housing professionals.
The event is set to offer a rare opportunity to connect with professionals from across the entire housing ecosystem. Visitors will be able to attend roundtable discussions, interact with over hundreds of exhibitors, and network on a 1-2-1 basis with thousands of sector peers.
A comprehensive keynote programme will feature five essential themes and over 40 sessions to choose from. Hear updates and guidance from Government speakers, alongside renowned experts, peer-led case studies and international speakers.
Visitors will also be able to interact with the best of the sector’s supply chain on the showfloor and explore new products, innovations and keep up-to-date with key sector announcements.
Homes UK will feature one keynote stage covering five essential sector themes, including: safety, sustainability, residential development, procurement and digital innovation.
With over 60 hours of content to choose from, attendees can build a personalised itinerary tailored to their priorities to make the most of the two days. The programme will be set across multiple stages, each offering a different take on the sector’s challenges.
The Future of Living stage, for example, will discuss political and economic analysis, residential development and construction, affordability, land, planning and placemaking, development funding, MMC and construction innovation, homelessness, and sector-wide collaboration and partnership working.
Offering a different angle, the Safer Futures stage will focus on building quality and safety, fire safety, tenant engagement, asset management, repairs and maintenance, and the Fitness for Human Habitation Act.
The Sustainable Futures stage will look at issues around climate change and reaching net zero, as well as healthy homes and places, post-Covid recovery and tenant support, efficiency and value for money, and ageing populations.
At the Digital Futures stage, attendees can learn about digital transformation, customer experience, mobile, flexible and remote working, data quality and management, IoT, smart homes and cities, and cyber security.
Finally, brought to the show by its sponsors Fusion21, the Buy Smarter Procurement stage will host discussions on current themes with key speakers from zero carbon and building safety reform to find out how tenants can help influence procurement, as well as showcasing the latest procurement trends insights.
