About the conference

The biggest and the best housing event in the South West

The CIH South West Housing Conference is the biggest of its kind in the region and attracts more than 460 attendees throughout the two-day event. It’s well-established as the essential forum for housing professionals to debate the hottest topics affecting the industry.

This year’s conference will once again take place at the Mercure Bristol Grand Hotel – an excellent venue which allows for great networking prospects with the conference and exhibition taking place in one area. The 2019 programme has been designed to give delegates the opportunity to hear from thought leaders, take part in interactive sessions and network with fellow housing professionals in the South West.

Join the conference and learn from leading experts, engage in debates and discuss the latest topics, including:

  • engaging and empowering tenants
  • learning from the disruptors
  • governance and regulation
  • inter-generational housing
  • for-profit housing providers – danger or opportunity

The event was a sell-out in 2018 and we even had to turn delegates away on the day so don’t miss out this year, get your place booked early!

We look forward to seeing you in May!
