CIH Housing 2020: What is it? When is it? How do I sign up?
The annual Housing 2020 Conference is the must-attend event for anyone connected with the Housing sector. For the first year ever, the conference moves online in a virtual experience like no other.
What is Housing 2020?
Operated annually by the Chartered Institute of Housing, its Housing Conference is Europe’s largest. Due to the coronavirus outbreak, 2020 sees the conference become a virtual for one year only.
This online festival encompasses all the best components of the annual Housing conference from your own choice of venue – problem-solving, best practice, and the opportunity to network with peers in the sector.
Speakers include government ministers such as the secretary of state for housing, the housing minister, welfare reform minister, alongside some of the leading and most influential names in housing today.
Plus, 200 national and international speakers, thousands of delegates, and 5 days of innovation and solutions.
When is it?
The conference takes place between Monday 7th of September and concludes on Friday 11th, starting each day at 8 am and concluding (officially) at 5 pm.
There are plenty of social engagement opportunities both in the morning and evenings, however, including breakfast briefings, housing quizzes, karaoke, and morning yoga classes.
Will Novus be there?
Yes, Novus are one of the main sponsors of the even and have a stand located at the conference, which you can view by following this link (if you have already signed up)
This year, Novus will be donating £2 (up to a maximum of £1000) for every passport stamped when visiting the Novus stand to Crisis, the homeless charity.
We’re also really excited to be part of a speaking event at the conference, where our own Sophie Seddon and John Palfreyman will take centre stage to discuss the benefits of agile working for housing associations.
How do I sign up for Housing 2020?
Signing up is easy and free (for visitors).
We hope to see you there.
An ‘Eggs’ellent Effort by the Novus Easter Bunnies
Easter is a time of year that can be even more challenging for people and families struggling to afford food, which is why our employees (or Novus Easter Bunnies) across the country wanted to play their part in donating Easter Eggs to local Food Banks.
