2020 property trend predictions

Following on from our 2019 review, we’re taking a closer look at some of the key themes and topics that could affect property sectors throughout 2020.

Year in review: 2019 property market

2019 has been a tumultuous year across many markets, perhaps not least for experts and consumers within property sectors. However, not all doom and gloom, there have also been some key milestones throughout the year, such as the celebration of the 100-year anniversary of modern council housing.

The growth of the UK’s Build to Rent sector

Recent research by Savills, commissioned for the British Property Federation, has highlighted 20% year on year growth in the Build to Rent (BTR) sector, with the number of completed units rising by 31% over the same period. For an industry significantly increasing its contribution to housing delivery right now, we’re taking a closer look at what’s going on in the market.

What to expect from an LD Events conference

Something we often get asked at LD Events is what exactly can be expected from a day attending one of our conferences. We know that agendas can be difficult to visualise, and you’ll want to get the most out of attending, so here’s a rundown of what you can expect on the day.

Market analyses, political overviews and opinion polls

We regularly host property market research experts with the latest opinion polls around consumer confidence and behaviour, statistics on UK housing situations and market growth, providing an overview on the current climate and highlighting the opportunities and challenges presenting themselves within the industry.  

We’re also lucky to welcome political experts from time to time, providing updates on the current political and economic environment and how this is impacting property as a whole, as well as more granularly region to region.  

Expert perspectives

One aspect that our delegates tell us they find the most interesting about attending our property conferences is the variety of different perspectives brought to the event. You can expect to hear presentations, seminars and panel discussions involving experts from the following areas:

  • Investment
  • Development
  • Construction
  • Manufacture
  • Design
  • Planning
  • Marketing and sales
  • Technology and innovation

As well as opportunities to pose questions to the experts, speakers will utilise case studies and real-life examples to draw upon for further insight, and you can also expect forward-thinking sessions that focus on how technology and innovation is changing the way we design and build.

Refreshments and networking

Each of our conferences attract hundreds of delegates from across the UK, EU and worldwide, so we make plenty of time for networking between talks and discussions, encouraging attendees to make connections that can be mutually beneficial for their line of work. A typical day at one of our conferences will present networking opportunities upon arrival, during the mid-morning session, around lunchtime and as the event draws to a close, with a post-conference drinks reception.

And, of course, we’ll ensure you are well looked after throughout the day, with a variety of refreshments you can help yourself to. Expect teas, coffee, smoothies and pastries in the morning, with canapes and light bites to see you through until lunchtime, where there will be nutritious options to suit everyone.

Our next events are just around the corner. We’ll be hosting the Student Housing Conference 2019 on Tuesday 14th May and the Site Finding and Development Conference 2019 on Tuesday 21st May. You can book your place for any of our conferences here.
