Housing 2019, the Chartered Institute of Housing’s annual event and Europe’s largest housing festival, takes place annually in June in Manchester.

Visitor registration to Housing 2019, the Chartered Institute of Housing’s annual event and Europe’s largest housing festival is open and we cannot wait to see you in Manchester in June.

With 450+ speakers, 400 key exhibitors, 12 streams of innovative content and a footfall of over 12,000 decision makers across three days – it is the biggest meeting place for the whole housing sector. Ranked as a global leader for the delegate experience, Housing has taken place for 70 years in the UK and provides a platform for key stakeholders to come together to discuss, debate, partner, learn and improve the lives of the people we house.

In 2019, alongside our Ministerial address, keynotes and masterclasses, we will focus on red hot topics including affordability, business transformation, leadership, technology, offsite construction, placemaking, fire safety, finance, politics and, of course, housing management, welfare reform and homelessness.

Housing 2019 is set to be the biggest and best of the Housing editions as of yet with new, exciting additions such as:

The MMC stage
