Conference Overview

Northamptonshire and the home counties are flourishing at the present time; ideally placed to catch the London Commuters these locations capture the best of rural and city living and with a strong road and rail network and a major airport nearby; urban and international connectivity is key.

Devolution has really captured the imagination of both private and public sector players and the levels of development activity is unprecedented. This looks set to continue for the foreseeable future and as such we couldn’t miss the opportunity to hold another event in Northampton.

Building on our recent successful events in the home countries our January conference in Northampton starts the year with some spectacular speakers and brings to light some significant development opportunities and some of the markets leading players to share with you their key schemes and plans for 2018.

We have 5 speakers who will provide you with an abundance of market intel and procurement opportunities and also an opportunity to discuss with them how you can work with them going forward.
