The Housing and Build to Rent Conference 2020 – hosted by Built Environment Networking – is taking place on 5 June 2020. Prominent business and public sector leaders will come together at one of the sectors largest business conferences of the year – but this time, virtually for the first time ever.

“We’re delighted to be hosting this virtual one-day conference – the first of many which are now planned to take place over the coming months.

“We’ve been delighted with the support and appetite of those speaking, sponsoring and attending to get involved in online events – and the agenda and discussion will certainly not disappoint.”

Amanda Griffiths, Operations Director, Built Environment Networking

The Housing and Build to Rent conference will see some of the country’s biggest names in the housing and residential market discuss industry challenges, opportunities and best practice, at a time when collaboration, knowledge sharing and thought-leadership has never been so important.

“Collaboration, knowledge sharing and networking has never been more important – but it’s also never been more difficult – and this event breaks down the barriers to connect people in a way events haven’t done before.”
