CIH Housing Conference 2021

07 September 2021

Manchester Central


CIH Housing 2021 is now only one week away- make sure you’re signed up to join us at this year’s conference. Below is what we have planned whilst we’re there.

As we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, what will the new normal hold for housing associations and what are the challenges we face? And how will the housing sector protect its reputation as new challenges arise?

CIH Housing 2021 is the first time for a long time that the sector will be in one room, and BECG Group will be out in full force.

For us, the rest of 2021 and 2022 will be all about reputation management – and being honest about the need to rebuild reputations in some places. The challenges of the pandemic, the building and fire safety crisis, and the need to work towards better sustainability, will have had impacts across the sector and across the country.

At CIH Housing 2021, we want to have honest conversations about how reputations can be maintained, strengthened, and hear from colleagues about their best practice and where things need to be done better.

Come and say hello at the BECG Group stand (G46). Our team will be more than happy to have a chat, talk about the work we’re doing on building safety, social media, decarbonisation and much more.

Join our session – Beyond 2021: can the social housing sector move past the fire safety crisis and build back better?

The event will look ahead to how the sector can tackle the issues of fire safety, learn from the experiences of the past few years, and ensure that as the sector supports the Government’s build back better ambitions we consider the needs of current and future tenants.


We’re delighted to be joined by an expert panel, including:

  • Lord Stephen Greenhalgh, Minister for Building Safety (pre-recorded)
  • Kate Henderson, Chief Executive of the National Housing Federation
  • Geeta Nanda, Chief Executive of Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing and Chair of the G15
  • Mark London, Partner for Construction, Engineering and Procurement at Devonshires
  • Patrick Law (Chair), Strategic Counsel, BECG Group’s Building Safety Unit

We hope to see you at the Insight Theatre in Manchester Central for what should be a fascinating discussion about the future of the sector.
