Social Housing Finance Conference will be the first opportunity for senior finance and treasury leads to convene to discuss the impact of Brexit and how housing desperately needs to lead the way to economic recovery post-pandemic. The conference will deliver, over three days, high-level keynote sessions, panel discussions and informed debate covering the most important strategic, operational and technical finance issues underpinning the housing business model and sector’s aspirations across the UK.

Key themes will include:
• Funding and investment
• Governance and regulation
• Recovery and beyond
• Risk and resilience

Why attend?

The virtual format of Social Housing Finance Conference 2021 will encompass all the best components of the established event; inspiring keynote sessions, panel discussions, Q&As and networking. While we may not be able to come together under one roof, we can still unite virtually to problem solve, connect and share best practice and case-studies. The conference will run across three days, ensuring delegates the same amount of quality content as usual, but over a more digestible timeframe.

Here’s just a few of the reasons you can’t afford to miss out:

• Explore
Discover what’s happening around the financial issues and challenges in the sector, taking into account political and economic aspects but also a real focus on how HAs and businesses are responding.

• Engage
Watch real-time presentations, participate in polls, surveys and live Q&A sessions with our expert speakers.

• Personalised schedule
A professional, online conference platform allows you to create your personal conference planner and set reminders for unmissable sessions.

• Network
Connect with speakers and peers via a sophisticated virtual networking platform.

• Flexibility
All sessions and presentations are available via the conference portal post-event, meaning you can catch-up and enjoy any sessions you miss on demand.
