The Conference

After the huge success of the 4 previous events, the Conference has firmly become the industry’s leading forum for thought leadership in UK regeneration and economic development.

The 26 speaker Conference will once again address the latest issues in urban & rural regeneration, policy and implementation, highlighting the key successes made in major towns and cities, in areas such as city centre and waterfront redevelopments.

As Regeneration is about people, place, economic growth and investment which can create sustainable and resilient communities, the Conference will examine the challenges that face towns and cities, in terms of economic development, housing and neighbourhood renewal, and will bring delegates together with policy experts, real-life case studies and industry leaders.

Availability at this uniquely free-to-attend conference is limited so early delegate registration is highly recommended.
