Housing Industry Leaders Cymru 2024

We’re delighted to be hosting our Housing Cymru conference and exhibition on 11 July 2024.  Moving into its second year the event will bring together the Welsh Government, local authorities, housing associations, the wider stakeholder community and the supply chain to discuss their vision for the future and how the sector will support the needs of its citizens.

The day is packed full of main stage presentations and panel discussions, getting to the heart of current priorities, including:

  • Heritage – the move towards the use of timber/wool/crops etc
  • The use of innovative products to meet our net zero targets
  • Healthy Homes
  • A Welsh Government update on key policies
  • Wales’ four economic growth deals, what projects are forthcoming
  • Water in the Home

Fully Funded Tickets

We recognise that budgets are extremely tight across the public sector, in recognition of this Housing Industry Leaders are pleased to announce that all public sector, charities and housing association employees can attend our event free of charge.  This includes all day refreshments, a 4-star buffet lunch and an invitation to our post event drinks reception.

Why Attend

The purpose of this event is to provide a platform for current policies, plans, priorities and projects to be discussed in an open forum, discussing the challenges faced and the opportunities available in a thought provoking way.  Through our panel discussions we will get to the heart of key issues and are designed to be interactive, allowing you to have your voice heard.  The event will also bring together key decision makers across Wales with organisations from the private sector who have the capabilites and long term commitment to work closely together to improve Wales’ future.  It creates a room full of like minded people where knowledge and best practice can be shared and it’s only by working together that we can deliver a strategy which offers best value for the taxpayer and accelerate the transition to net zero.

Opportunities for the Private Sector

We have a number of sponsorship options available to meet your requirements, these include options to speak on the main stage addressing the whole audience, or by engaging in one of our panel sessions.  We also have an exhibition area running throughout the day allowing companies a focal point in the room to speak to delegates and to discuss their solutions in more detail.  We also recognise the importance of micro companies and SME companies and the role they play in Wales and have suitably priced opportunities to ensure they can be part of the conversation.
