Brexit conference for housing sector


A London event is offering the housing sector a chance to unite following the recent Brexit vote.

The National Housing Federation are calling on housing associations to attend the dedicated event on Tuesday 19 July at the America Square Conference Centre in London.

It is a chance for housing associations to come together and discuss the implications of the EU referendum.

At a time of national uncertainty following the vote, the Brexit conference is the only specialist event in the sector that will tackle the issue from a housing perspective.

Topics will include all aspects of various consequences of the Brexit vote, including:

  • John Pienaar, BBC deputy political editor, on the UK’s future relationship with the EU
  • Michael Portillo, former cabinet minister, broadcaster and commentator, on Britain’s political future
  • David Orr, chief executive of the National Housing Federation, talking about what housing associations can offer the country during this time.

Taking place less than a month after the vote, the Brexit conference offers a timely and unique opportunity for the sector to be proactive and optimistic as it seeks to respond to a changing environment.

There will also be a webinar offered after the conference for those who can’t attend the conference in London, with further details available upon request.

David Orr, chief executive of the National Housing Federation said: “These are dramatic times for the United Kingdom which will affect all the politics and policy that govern our lives. Housing is no exception and it is vital that the sector is prepared for the challenges and opportunities to come.

“The Brexit conference on 19 July is the first opportunity for housing associations to come together and discuss how they can own their future. I hope to see as many colleagues as possible there as we seek a united response to this new environment.”
