In light of the vote for Brexit and other recent political and economic events, there has never been a more critical time for the residential industry to come together and pull in the same direction to “keep Britain building”.
RESI, taking place on 12-14 September, will show you how to keep the industry on the road – we’ve gathered the market heavyweights from all sides of the residential sector to thrash out the answers the industry urgently needs.
On policy, we will hear from the newly-appointed housing minister Gavin Barwell on how to create the right conditions to keep Britain building.
Other high-level speakers – top representatives from local authorities and housing associations, construction and housebuilding, developers and investors – will debate the housing market in the light of the Brexit vote, including devolution of power to cities and the role of the public sector.
Key speakers for the agenda days at Celtic Manor Resort Golf Club in Gwent, Wales (13-14 September) include:
- Gavin Barwell, minister of state for housing and planning, Department for Communities and Local Government
- James Murray, deputy mayor for housing, Greater London Authority
- Tony Pidgley CBE, chairman, Berkeley Group
- Paul Stanworth, managing director, Legal & General Capital
- Deborah McLaughlin, executive director - North West, Homes and Communities Agency
- Michela Hancock, development director, Greystar
- Natalie Elphicke OBE, chief executive, The Housing & Finance Institute
- Paul Tennant OBE, group chief executive, Orbit Group
Special 10th anniversary feature: Development of the Decade Award
To celebrate RESI’s 10th anniversary, we have launched the Development of the Decade Award. A shortlist of 10 schemes has been announced and will be displayed in the 10 For 10 Gallery at RESI.
Delegates will cast their vote for their favourite development, and the winners will be revealed during the conference on Wednesday, 14 September.
Networking & Social
RESI 2016 offers ample networking opportunities throughout its three days. On the evening of Monday 12 September, there will be a welcome drinks reception with a special guest speaker. On Tuesday 13 September, we will host the annual gala dinner and entertainment, followed by cocktails reception.
Other great activities are the golf tournament on the TwentyTen course, Honda pilots, hovercraft and duck herding and go-karting session. To take part in any of the above, all delegates can register their interest at no extra cost.
RESI will continue to facilitate cutting-edge debate, showcase best practice, explore the opportunities and challenge the status quo – championing the delivery of additionality and innovation across all housing tenures. All this while providing unmissable networking and first-hand learning!
