This year’s RESI Convention is just around the corner and with people confined to their homes once again in the nation’s second lockdown, debate about the future of the UK’s housing market and stock has never been more timely or crucial.

RESI 2020

This year’s two-day virtual event, taking place on 10-11 November, will provide an insightful snapshot of how the market has coped with a difficult year, its short-term plans as the pandemic continues, and its long-term vision and strategy as the country emerges from Covid-19.

Here are just 10 of the most exciting things to look out for at this year’s event.

  • Property Week editor Liz Hamson will speak to Jake Chai, chief of staff from Common, the largest co-living business in the US. They will discuss what good property management looks like in the sector and what the UK can learn from the US market.

  • A crucial and timely address from Housing secretary Robert Jenrick will see him speak about the government’s vision for the housing market and the proposed reforms to the planning systems in the long-awaited white paper.

  • Long-time chair and BBC News home editor Mark Easton will return to host the RESI Convention 2020. After years at the helm of the conference Mark will deploy his industry knowledge and broadcasting expertise to keep the pace brisk and the content on point for this year’s conference.

  • We bring a panel of leading residential CEOs together to talk about the impact of Covid-19 on the residential sector. Don’t miss insight from @BerkeleyGroupUK’s Rob Perrins and @watkin_jones’s Richard Simpson among others.
