A unique event for a diverse sector

With a new home for 2019 at the ExCel in east London, Homes UK will give the UK’s residential property sector the opportunity to connect, learn and do business over an action-packed two days this month

HOMES UK is claimed by its organisers to be an “unrivalled” event that will look at the entire ecosystem of home building and maintenance for every type of accommodation in the UK, from affordable to market sale and the rapidly growing build to rent, student, co-living and retirement sectors.

It is claimed to be the only event of its kind to unite so many residential players, “driving collaboration and discussion, and providing a showcase for the latest solutions necessary to deliver a diverse and high-quality supply of new homes to address the UK crisis.”

Homes UK also consistently attracts the largest concentrated audience of senior decision-makers (70 per cent of attendees have budgetary responsibility), making it a fantastic platform for doing business.

All of the action in one place
The show floor is set to host over 200 exhibitors, showcasing innovative products and services designed for Homes UK’s key market. Meanwhile, the extensive conference programme will run over seven varied theatres covering everything from sustainability, design quality and regeneration, to planning reform, Brexit and the sector’s future workforce.

The organisers commented: “Bringing together a programme that covers every type of residential accommodation is no mean feat, but we’ve curated the best of the sector’s expertise and achievements through over 70 hours of high-calibre content.”

Although now in its eighth year, the ethos of Homes UK hasn’t changed – “keeping the design, build and management of great quality homes in thriving communities at its heart.” The programme will provide insight on complex challenges while also offering practical advice and success stories led by industry peers.

Choose from topics spanning the entire lifecycle of residential development and asset management. This year, you’ll find industry heavyweights and rising stars alongside even the odd celebrity, making Homes UK an event not to be missed. This year’s conference highlights include:

  • How should we reform the planning system?
  • Brexit or bust? What’s next for the residential market?
  • Design quality: Building better, not just building more
  • Hackitt 18 months on: What still needs to change?
  • Regeneration: How do we drive quality community engagement?
  • Homes for an ageing population: At crisis point?
  • Sustainability and the carbon zero challenge
  • Health and wellbeing in our homes and towns
