Day 1

Meet your Future Partner

Following the success of last year’s session, we intend to discuss a year on how the landscape has changed.

This is an exclusive networking opportunity for developers, housing associations, landowners and local authorities to meet and connect with the aim of unlocking small sites for residential development. Removing the barriers and empowering SMEs to get building will aid the government vision in seeing an increase in supply and in this session we will bring SMEs up close and personal with key organisations that will help unpack the technicalities of land acquisition, work through the collaborative solutions and highlight live land opportunities.

The focus will include: 

  • Public land: how can SMEs get on the frameworks and acquire small brownfield sites? 
  • Technical advice on planning and masterplanning 
  • Capital, land and delivery: mapping the cycle from start to finish and troubleshooting 
  • Partnerships and joint ventures

RESI Trailblazers 2019 Introduction

Last year, we revealed our inaugural list of RESI Trailblazers, the resi rising stars that had come to the fore in the previous 12 months. Join us as we unveil this year’s Trailblazers, as nominated by readers, last year’s Trailblazers and our RESI Senate. Hear from leaders blazing a trail in tackling homelessness on the keynote panel, and then congratulate this year’s winners during the Big Reveal and at the conference welcome drinks reception.

Keynote: Living homeless. Seven days as a nobody

Julia is very much at home on our TV screens but, for one week in winter she became officially homeless, abandoned on the streets of north London with nothing but the clothes on her back and a sleeping bag. She explains why she did it, what she learned and why it was, beyond question, the toughest thing she’s ever done. She’ll describe how even a famous person becomes anonymous on the streets, and lose their sense of self and safety within mere hours. She says she’ll never look at homelessness the same way again. Hopefully, you won’t either.

Opening keynote panel: Trailblazing solutions to the homelessness crisis

For the housing sector, few issues cut to the quick more than homelessness – and there is no sector more uniquely placed to help tackle the crisis. With social impact and health & wellbeing increasingly to the fore and a range of innovative solutions, from proxy addresses and ‘meanwhile’ space to ground-breaking initiatives to help the homeless, now to hand, our panel explores some of trailblazing solutions to homelessness currently being implemented and asks: what more can be done?

RESI Trailblazers: The big reveal

We unveil this year’s cohort of RESI Trailblazers, an inspirational group of almost 60 innovators, disruptors and entrepreneurs who are ripping up the rule book and making the residential sector fit for the future. Selected by our RESI Senate, Property Week readers, former Trailblazers and the Property Week editorial team, the RESI Trailblazers hail from all corners of the residential sector and are as diverse a group of industry movers and shakers as you will get.
