The Virtual Housing Festival, 7-11 September 2020


In 2020 and for one year only, the Chartered Institute of Housing's annual conference and Europe's largest housing festival goes virtual!

Housing 2020: the virtual festival will encompass all the best components of Housing from your own choice of venue – problem solving, best practice, helping each other and the opportunity to share.

Join the secretary of state for housing, communities and local government, housing minister, welfare reform minister, deputy mayor (housing) of London, shadow secretary of state for housing and co-leader of the Green Party alongside 200 national and international voices, thousands of delegates and a showfloor packed with innovation and solutions.

This must-attend event for local authorities, housing associations, key partners and suppliers, government, housebuilders, and developers, will take place from 7-11 September 2020. While we cannot all unite under one roof at this time, we can unite virtually for one purpose – to discuss, debate, partner, learn and improve the lives of the people we house at a time when the sector most needs leadership, support and collaboration.

The conference preview is now live with the most innovative and exciting sessions taking place over a five-day period with two streams running concurrently at any one time. There will be plenty of networking time, opportunities to attend roundtables and briefings, a raft of social activities, a climate change hackathon and a guarantee you are part of the conversation moving forward.
