Housing 2023 | Network and innovate

Housing 2023 returns to Manchester Central in June with a packed conference programme, offering ample debate and networking opportunities, as well as the chance to check out the latest technologies available for social and affordable housing providers in the exhibition, plus award ceremonies to celebrate the achievements of those in the sector. Here, event organisers Ocean Media Group share with us why this year’s show is one not to be missed.

Throughout the whole of the UK, the housing sector is facing unprecedented challenges. From uncertainty in government funding; new regulations; the pressing need for more homes; the equally pressing need to maintain and improve the homes we have while modernising  procedures and services to meet the expectations and needs of tenants and residents. And that’s without mentioning external pressures such as the continuing cost-of-living crisis and the pressure on all other public sector services.

That’s why, for Housing 2023, we have put together a fantastic programme of content that packs in lots of learning. With an abundance of thought-leaders and expert-thinkers joining us across three days, the event is an opportunity to come together with peers from across the sector to network and innovate. And through all of this, we’ll make sure improving professionalism is at the heart of every discussion, to ensure you continue to provide the best outcomes for your tenants and residents.
