Five reasons to attend Housing Scotland 2019

11 and 12 June, Radisson Blu Hotel, Glasgow.

Posted In

This year’s SFHA annual conference – Housing Scotland 2019 – is taking place on 11 and 12 June at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Glasgow. The event is one of Scotland’s highest profile housing conferences and provides delegates with the chance to gain skills, network, exchange ideas and learn from each other. Here are the SFHA’s top five reasons to attend.

1. Hear Professor Sir Harry Burns give a keynote address

Professor Sir Harry Burns is a former Chief Medical Officer for Scotland and Professor of Global Public Health at Strathclyde University. During his opening keynote session, Sir Harry will reflect on the issues he has encountered over his career and encourage delegates to think about health inequalities and the role social housing can play in addressing these. 

2. Join in the Digital Forum

During this session, delegates will hear from staff working on digital programmes. The session will allow delegates to collaborate and share knowledge and experiences of successes – and failures – and how to learn from them.

3. Hear what the housing sector could be like in 2040

We are entering a new era of innovation that is likely to transform the way we work, the services we offer and the communities we serve. Driving much of this change will be connectivity and data, meaning we can work with our customers in their homes and communities. During this session, a panel will share their views regarding what they think the sector will be like in 2040 and set out what we need to do to prepare for the changes. 

4. Hear from London-based author Adam Greenfield

Adam Greenfield is a London-based writer and urbanist, most recently author of Radical Technologies, The Design of Everyday Life (Verso, 2017). His next book, Power at Human Scale, is forthcoming in 2020.

5. Fantastic networking opportunity

Be part of an event that will see over 200 like-minded housing professionals, from across the country, together in one location to share ideas and best practice. Once again, the conference will host a drinks reception and dinner to give you even more opportunity to talk to your peers.

The SFHA’s flagship event, Housing Scotland 2019, takes place on 11 and 12 June at the Radisson Blu Hotel in central Glasgow. 

Residential rates start at £595 for SFHA members or you can attend for the day, with prices starting at £280 (SFHA members).

If your organisations books three day delegate places, you can bring a fourth delegate for the day for free.
