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 12:00 - 14:00 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.

Summit after dark


Summit Drinks: If you’re travelling down the night before the Summit, we’ll be hosting a drinks reception alongside a pub quiz. Test your knowledge and make connections ahead of the main event.


Futures Expo Showcase: We’ve brought some of the UK’s most interesting and cutting-edge social entrepreneurs to Futures Expo, and this is your chance to meet them. Try their products and services, quiz the brains behind them, and take the learnings back to your association, all with a drink in your hand.

Great Places Reception: Join us to find out more about the Federation’s Great Places and Devolution work and discover how you can play your part in these important projects.

Pub Grub: Relaxed and informal, we’ve hired space in a local pub for you to wind down and grab a drink or bite to eat.


David Orr's Farewell: Join David on the main stage as he gives his final keynote speech. You’re then invited to join us to raise a toast, share stories and wish him well for his retirement.
