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

Conversation will flow freely in the heart of the tropical Barbican conservatory, a space dedicated to networking, case studies and demonstrations. Surround yourself with the sounds of running water and tropical birds, and take your time to relax and have intimate 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.

Make it your space

We want this space to be both a haven for the thoughtful thinkers and a playground for the adventurers – and we need your help! Tweet us and let us know what you want to hear about and whom you want to hear from. Who’s the industry hero with ground-breaking ideas you would like to meet face-to-face in the concrete jungle?

Send your ideas and shape the space using the hashtag #AHO19 and tagging @natfedevents
