It’s been a privilege to pull together an outstanding line-up of speakers and panellists for this live event for property professionals and investors in Basingstoke on the 10th March.

Our conference theme is Place, People and Planet and you can expect expert insights on the following topics:

Market and Strategic Insights
Promoting Sites and Development Opportunities
What does Regeneration mean to you?
The Future of the Workplace
Sustainable Construction including a feature on Skills

Sessions will be lively, interactive and a combination of information sharing, promotion, audience participation, table discussions and opportunities to connect and engage.

In previous years the conference has been held in Farnborough and Guildford respectively, although inevitably in 2020 we had to go virtual, although still with a great line up of speakers including the deputy CEO of Surrey County Council, Michael Coughlin.

For our Fifth Annual Conference we visit North Hampshire and have Cllr Simon Bound from Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council declaring the event open. Our line up then includes Ed Hampson from Savills and Zach Wilcox from Arup who will provide important market updates and insights.

Kate Dean from Basingstoke and Deane and Tim Mills from Rushmoor also take the stage and showcase development plans for their respective council areas. Robin Shepherd from Barton Willmore will be updating delegates on the exciting promotion of Central South at MIPIM 2022 and I’m delighted that Robin will then be supporting my role as conference host by chairing two panels.

Our first panel looks at the Future of the Workplace with experts including Kathy Slack the CEO at Enterprise M3 LEP and Greg Stone from Highways England.

This is followed by a panel of experts exploring Sustainable Construction with contributions from Professor Richard Murphy and Laurence Cummins from the University of Surrey, Jamie Mackay from Enterprise M3 LEP and Ben Silsby from Willmott Dixon.

I would like to thank everyone who’s stepped forward so willingly to get involved at one of the first live conferences since the lifting of restrictions. Our priority is the comfort and safety of our guests and all government guidelines in relation to the pandemic will be followed to ensure a safe meeting environment for everyone.

Other panellists and speakers are still to be announced and there’s space available in our exhibition area (including the ever popular Meet the Site Owner Zone)

I’m most appreciative of our sponsors and event partners Willmott Dixon, Morgan Sindall, Encompass Surveys and Kier without which none of this will be possible.

You can find out more about this event on our website and if you’d like to learn about the Meet the Site Owner Zone, or remaining sponsorship opportunities, please contact me via or 07951790743.
