Liverpool event backed by Housing Today will replace both organisations’ annual conferences

The Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) and the National Housing Federation (NHF) have announced a new joint conference in Liverpool.

The event, called The Housing Community Summit, is backed by Housing Today as media partner and will replace both organisations’ annual conferences.

The ACC in Liverpool will host the Community Housing Summit

Gavin Smart, chief executive of the CIH, said: “Bringing together our two organisations to create this flagship event for the housing sector will provide all housing professionals and partners with the opportunity to come together to hear from top class speakers from across the sector, government, politics and beyond.”

Kate Henderson, chief executive of the NHF, said: “Collaboration will be at the heart of this event – not just between the NHF and CIH, but between a wider range of stakeholders, politicians and residents. It will be our whole housing community, under one roof.”

The event follows yesterday’s announcement that Housing Today and CIH have entered a strategic partnership to provide additional news, insight, comment and analysis to its members.

Under the deal, institute members will receive full access to Housing Today and the data and sentiment product Housing Today Boardroom as part of their subscription.

The event replaces CIH’s annual June conference in Manchester and the NHF’s annual summit in Birmingham.

The Housing Community Summit will take place on 9 and 10 September at the ACC in Liverpool.
