We know how important it is to get together with other like-minded people to share ideas and collaborate.

This is a chance to catch up with all of the people you’ve been meaning to talk to, all in one place.

You’ll have the space and time to schedule meetings. You’ll also have the breathing space to discuss the issues you didn’t plan for with housing association executive teams, consultants, and the National Housing Federation.

More than 11 hours of networking with your peers across two days, including:

  • lunch served between 12:30 - 14:30 and refreshments available throughout the day
  • lounge, meeting points and a chill and charge point to make sure you can hold the meetings you need to
  • the opportunity to connect with hundreds of housing professionals via the event app
  • dedicated zones to mingle and interact.

Unwind after a day of debates and discussions and join us for the official Summit drinks reception.
Plaza Suite & Ballroom Foyer, Levels -1 & -3

5:30PM – 8:00PM F*CK UP, STAND UP
Most stories you hear at events focus on the success stories of businesses but what had to happen to get to that point? What failures did these people have to go through in order to become successful? No successful person has gotten to where they are without running into major road blocks along the way. Hear from a handful of influential people in a more laid back setting about why failure is part of any venture. It’s about failing intelligently and learning from it.
Futures Expo, Level -3,

6:30PM – 11PM PRIVATE HOTEL BAR OPENS
