    Housing Festival - Sponsored by Aico

    Following the successful launch of our Housing Festival event in 2017, we’ve decided to bring this innovative and exciting event to TAI 2019!

    What it is:

    A new event (as in: new type, new format, new style of venue)

    We mean it when we say this, you have not been to a CIH event like this one.

    An event where you'll get more out of it if you take part

    You get out what you put in. If you come to Housing Festival 2019 you'll learn something. If you come to Housing Festival 2019 and get in the middle of it, you'll learn A LOT.


    You don't have to wear the conference costume, come as you are - it genuinely helps you get in the right mind set to learn.

    For pretty much everyone apart from senior leadership

    You're still welcome chief executives, but we won't be doing the big policy landscape graphs of financially viable jargon doom. We're talking real housing practice, real ways to become better every day.

    What it isn't:

    Just ours

    We really want this one to be different - if you think we should be covering something then tell us now! We'll include what we can. Want to get involved, speak, or volunteer? Talk to us - it's Housing's Festival, we've just booked the venue.

    An unconference

    We love unconferences, but this isn't one. Part of our mission is to build some defined learning outcomes into the programme, so we can't commit to a proper unconference format. It'd be disingenuous for us to say it was even a bit unconference-y without going the whole hog.

    Why have we included Housing Festival in TAI 2019

    By bringing the event to the largest housing event in Wales, we are giving you the opportunity to network with senior leaders, meet with our exhibitors and to also experience a little bit of TAI 2019.

    If you wish to register your interest in Housing Festival 2019, please email or call 024 7685 1722.

    Booking information and the programme will be available in February 2019.

    We are currently experiencing problems with taking online payments for delegate bookings. We would recommend that you select the invoice to organisation option. This will generate an invoice to your organisation within 7 days. The invoice can be paid by BACS, however if you prefer to pay by credit card, please call our events team on 0247685 722, quoting your invoice number, and they will be able to process the payment for you.

    If you are experiencing difficulties with booking online please call the CIH events team on 024 7685 1722.
