A unique event for a diverse sector

With a new home for the 2019 edition, HOMES UK will provide the UK’s residential property sector with the opportunity to connect, learn and do business over an action-packed two days HOMES UK is an unrivalled event that will look at the entire ecosystem of both home building and maintenance for every type of accommodation in the UK, from affordable to market sale and the rapidly growing build to rent, student, co-living and retirement sectors.

It’s the only event of its kind to unite so many residential players, driving collaboration and discussion, and providing a showcase for the latest solutions necessary to deliver a diverse and high-quality supply of new homes to address the UK crisis.

HOMES UK also consistently attracts the largest concentrated audience of senior decision-makers (70 per cent of attendees have budgetary responsibility), making it a fantastic platform for doing business.

All of the action in one place

The show floor is set to host over 200 exhibitors, showcasing innovative products and services designed for HOMES UK’s key market. Meanwhile, the extensive conference programme will run over seven varied theatres covering everything from sustainability, design quality and regeneration, to planning reform, Brexit and the sector’s future workforce.
