We are delighted to invite you to our flagship Annual Conference 2018, where you can join chief executives and senior figures in real estate to discuss the future of our industry and how to plan for it.

Described as a "must-go" by Patrizia Chief Executive Wolfgang Egger, our annual conference attracts decision-makers across the breadth of the UK real estate industry. This year's conference will examine how to build resilience from 3 different aspects – political, economic and social. Topics for discussion will include:

  • How can we build resilience in uncertain political times?
  • How can we manage the changing economic climate?
  • What will our communities, homes and workplaces look like in the future?
  • How can we create resilient businesses through people?
