Paralympic legend Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson will join the speakers at Property Week’s Student Accommodation Conference & Awards on 8 December at the InterContinental O2.

Grey-Thompson, who is chancellor of Northumbria University and Britain’s best-known Paralympic athlete, will deliver a keynote speech on restoring trust in the sector following a tough year for students as a result of Covid-19.

The must-attend event will be the first physical Student Accommodation Conference & Awards since prior to the pandemic. It follows hot on the heels of the Property Awards earlier this month, the first in-person awards since 2019.
