Post Covid-19; The Future of Property & Development Conference

Friday, 31st July 2020 0900hrs – 1500hrs

This online conference will focus on shaping the next 30 years of the property and development sector from the mouths of the prodigal talent and companies who will be at the vanguard of the evolution as we reflect on the impact of Covid-19.

The UK built environment industry is about to embark on a maelstrom of change. While there’ll always be a myriad of exciting projects being lead by the traditional developers a new wave of disruptor’s, innovators and influencer’s are coming to the fore. At this event, delegates will hear from up and coming voices and organisations who are relatively new to the sector and be given an opportunity to listen, learn and interact about collaboration opportunities. Whether it be ‘rising stars’ within a current pan-UK developer or the chance to hear from an emerging force whom they may not be aware of, this event offers everyone the chance to shape the future, peek behind the curtain of what might be coming and gain a hatful of new contacts.

Some of the developments set to be discussed include:

* Argent’s £700m Paradise project* Yet to be announced schemes by XUSA
* Croydon Council Owned Brick by Brick’s future plans* Packaged Living’s fresh BtR plans
* Magway’s innovative’ Hyperloop’ for the logistics sector* Hill Group’s £53m Stevenage scheme
* MELT Property’s £250m development pipeline* Sustrans bid to create a national cycle network
* Environment Agency’s £2.6bn investment* 24 sites brought forward by Brick by Brick

We’ll have over 25 expert speakers. Those confirmed include:

Magway – Huw Thomas, Development Director

The revolutionary Magway is proposing an e-commerce delivery system like now other that improves air quality and congestion by removing significant numbers of products, parcels and vans from highways and urban areas.

The ‘Hyperloop’ of logistics the plan is to utilise proprietary technology with existing treied and tested solutions to deliver goods more reliably.

Unlike Hyperloop there are many more elements that don’t need to be tested, speed and cost can be reduced, and therefore the Innovate UK backed firm is in a position to roll the scheme out. With contacts already in place with the likes of Old Oak & Park Royal Development Corporation this new infrastructure could be the next big thing in the UK.
