Echelon Conference 2024

The 2024 conference will take place on Thursday 10th October at The Emirates Stadium, London, the home of Arsenal Football Club, and will build on the success of last year’s event, which attracted almost 300 people.

Now in its 10th year, it brings the housing sector together to find innovative solutions to key challenges, and this year’s conference will focus on collaborative working and knowledge sharing.

We have a few changes for 2024 including the introduction of a Recharge Zone – a dedicated space to take a breather to recharge your devices and yourself!

Enjoy fresh fruit, complimentary smoothies and fruit juices throughout the day to refuel while you wait for your phone, tablet etc to power up.

We are pleased to announce that there will also be a Work Hub, offering a quiet space to take a call, or tackle important tasks that may arise during the conference, without  missing out on the action.

Our popular exhibition area will be returning this year, providing the perfect opportunity to peruse a range of products and services, and to chat with over 20 exhibitors, as well as networking with industry colleagues.

Finally, following the conference there will be the opportunity to let your hair down at the drinks reception and dinner, with entertainment and a charity auction in aid of Herts Young Homeless.

Please keep an eye out for the latest news on the agenda, speakers and conference sessions, with regular updates on the website and our LinkedIn page.
