The Barbican’s conservatory, a hidden tropical oasis in the heart of the concrete jungle, forms the central networking hub of the event. Home to exotic fish and tropical plants and trees, this summer we will be introducing a diverse group of affordable housing professionals to their habitat.

Audience takeover at the Barbican conservatory

We’ve selected some of the sector's most pressing questions to focus on during the takeover - come equipped to discuss and challenge each other and our moderators.

This is also a space where you can surround yourself with the sounds of running water and tropical birds, and take your time to relax and have discussions with colleagues over tea, coffee or a mocktail. Digest what you’ve heard during the previous sessions and debate how you’ll transform these ideas into reality.

Darts and networking at Flight Club

To help you make the most of this rare opportunity to meet peers from across the country, we are bringing you an additional networking event. Join us the night before the conference at Flight Club Shoreditch for food, drinks, and friendly darts competition. You'll also have the opportunity to help shape the conference content for the following day. Bring your ‘A’ game to be crowned darts champion – or just come to enjoy the company.

4 June 7pm – 10pm
