The award-winning Chartered Institute of Housing's annual conference and Europe's leading housing festival returns to a COVID-secure Manchester Central in September after a year of virtual discussions, debates, and dialogue.

And we are delighted to be back! With 8500+ attendees, 10 theatres, 500+ speakers, and 400+ sponsors and exhibitors over the three days – it is the biggest meeting place for the whole housing sector. A sector that has, in 2020, collaborated more strongly than ever to show its resilience, leadership, and the efforts of its extraordinary individuals who continue to deliver for those living in our communities.

Ranked as a global leader for the delegate experience, Housing has taken place for 70 years in the UK and this year, more than ever, will provide a platform for key stakeholders to come together to discuss, debate, partner, learn, and improve the lives of the people we house.

Housing remains the must-attend event for local authorities, housing associations, key partners and suppliers, government, housebuilders, and developers. Join us to create lasting change together!
