This year's UKAA Build to Rent Expo will focus on the 'For Better BTR Business' theme.

The UK Apartment Association (UKAA) has announced the headline theme to next month’s popular and favourable Build to Rent Expo 2023; ‘For Better BTR Business’.

As the largest trade show within the Build to Rent industry, the expo will be free to attend for UKAA members. Non-members will be welcome too.

Over 500 companies will be represented at the show, with attendees coming together to share information, learn, network and collaborate – ‘For Better BTR Business’.

60+ exhibitors and expert speakers will be in attendance, including a series of expert sessions operating throughout the day that will be exploring the key theme of better Build to Rent business.

Specific topics within the main theme will include the Call for Leadership, Whole Life Costing and Operator Procurement Processes.

There will also be a lively, interactive ‘FM Fever’ workshop that will focus on the importance of high levels of professional maintenance within Build to Rent.

“We are delighted to welcome members and non-members alike to the UKAA Build to Rent Expo once more this year. Bigger than ever before, we are proud to present a broad range of Build to Rent specific suppliers along with a high-quality content agenda that will provide attendees with the knowledge and opportunities to deliver better Build to Rent business.”

Brendan Geraghty, CEO, UKAA

The show will open with a ‘reverse trade show’ which provides the opportunity for exhibitors to connect on a one-to-one basis with major purchasers, using a ‘speed dating’ meeting format.

This exhibitors-only event proved extremely popular at last year’s expo and runs from 8.15am to 10.00am.

To celebrate the success of the event, a networking drinks reception – something that was well-received at the 2022 event – will be held at the end of the day.

The event will be held on Thursday 20 April 2023 at the Business Design Centre in London’s Islington, from 10am to 5pm.
