RESI Conference 2017
Henry Riley attended RESI Conference hosted by Property Week on 13th – 15th September at the Celtic Manor, Wales. As usual, the conference was well attended and the quality of speakers and panels was excellent.
The new housing and planning minister Alok Sharma delivered his first public address at the conference, outlining how he plans to reshape UK housing policy and placed a strong emphasis on developing the build to rent market. This was also highlighted by speaker Lucian Cook, who noted that build to rent is gathering momentum. Other notable sessions were the in focus session on Stamp Duty and the final morning panel on The Future Disrupters.
All in all, it was another successful RESI Conference and we look forward to returning again in 2018.
