About the event

SE Conference

The CIH South East’s Housing Conference is the largest of its kind in the region and attracts over 1200 attendees from across London and the South East. Now in its 26th year, the South East Conference has established itself as the essential forum for housing professionals in London and the South East to discuss and debate the hottest topics affecting the industry.

This years conference has an array of expert speakers from the sector who will provide policy, strategic and government updates, share good practice with delegates and offer solutions to the issues your organisations may face.

The 2015 conference takes place less than 2 months before the general election, as we approach the election in May it is clear that housing is going to be a the forefront of the political debate. The election will be one of the main themes and will provide you with the opportunity to hear opinion leaders. Delegates will understand their thoughts about housing need and engage directly with them to help shape their future thinking.

The three day conference will provide you with the perfect opportunity to hear directly from innovative practitioners who will inspire and encourage you to improve your skills and knowledge, whilst keeping you up to date with the latest changes in government legislation.
