This week the Sava team exhibited at Housing 2022 at Manchester Central. With 10 theatres, 450+ speakers, 8000+ attendees and 300+ sponsors and exhibitors over the three days it is the biggest meeting place for the housing sector.
It was fantastic to meet up with our integrator partners and customers of Intelligent Energy.
The team attended as many speaking sessions as we possible including, “What does Levelling Up mean for Housing?” where Intelligent Energy customer Barrington Billings was on the panel. Interesting discussion points included what does ‘Levelling Up’ mean, it isn’t a new concept but that we need to Level Up our communities as well as our homes and improve the disparity in people’s lives across all areas; education, social care & employment too.
Another session was presented by Audrey Taylor of 3C Consultants and Kieran Colgan and Adrian Redmond of ARK Consultancy Ltd talking about the importance of data integrity and ‘one version of the truth’.
Intelligent Energy customer, Sandy Livingstone – Executive Director for Property at Onward Homes, discussed what it took for a successful Wave 1 SHDF bid and what they had learned from the process in the session “Delivering Net Zero: turning talk into action at a local level”.
We undertook filming at the event where we spoke to our partners, customers and industry experts about what they see the biggest challenges being in the housing sector and how net zero is of strategic importance to the UK. We will release the videos soon.
We are already looking forward to exhibiting at Housing 2023 – thanks to the Chartered Institute of Housing for putting on such an excellent conference and all the delegates who made the event what it was.
