Resi Conference Agenda & Timetable

The conference takes place on Wednesday 28th November 2018 at ETC Venues - St Pauls, London. 

The 2018 National Residential Investment Conference returns for a 8th Year and has been completely updated to reflect the current market, with presentations from some of the most respected figures in the sector.

Last year this event sold out several weeks in advance so please book early to guarantee your attendance. Bookings are strictly first come, first served.

We’re expecting this to be very popular as always, and it’s a chance to be completely updated on the market, cross off some CPD, and network with the leading players in the Resi Investment Sector. It should be a very worthwhile day.

The Event will look at maximising opportunities in a Resi sector that is now seeing institutional and international investment. Hear about some new innovations and opportunities, understand how developers and investors can structure deals, look at joint ventures with public land, and learn about the future of the Resi Investment Market across the UK. There will also be a detailed market update, looking at fundamental economics & Brexit and where Resi fits as a Property asset class both within the UK & Internationally. The panel will also review current investment, looking who is involved and how the market is therefore evolving, as well as examining in detail how to design, deliver & manage a successful Build to Rent & PRS operation.
