The challenges and opportunities facing the public and private housing sector in Kent and Medway will be put under the microscope at the Kent Housing Group Conference 2024, which is taking place at the Kent Event Centre on 5 March.
More than 200 housing industry professionals are expected to attend the conference, which is being organised by the Kent Housing Group (KHG) in association with Birketts, Counties and Capital Consulting and Stantec.
Delegates from a range of specialisms engaged in the delivery of public and private sector housing will gather for the one-day event, between 10am and 4pm.
In addition to representatives of the member and partner organisations, delegates will include developers, registered providers, planners, architects, contractors, policy-makers, charities, consultants and special interest groups.
Key panel discussions at the conference will reflect the themes of the Kent and Medway Housing Strategy 2020-2025, and discussions on the day will help KHG to formulate its future strategy. The programme will include:
- Health and wellbeing
- Working together for safer homes
- Infrastructure first
- Accelerating housing delivery
The conference will be chaired by BBC presenter Sally Bundock, and a senior national politician has been invited to give a keynote speech. The event is being delivered by White Label Creative.
KHG chair Brian Horton said: “Housing is fundamentally about people and communities, not just bricks and mortar. In addition to informing, educating and enthusing key stakeholders and members, our conference will provide strategic advice and a Kent perspective on the hottest topics and issues facing the housing sector today and into the future.”
The conference is free for KHG members (limited to five spaces per organisation) and the cost for non-members is £155+VAT if booked by 31 January and £250+VAT thereafter. You can book your place to attend here.
