This year’s BPF Annual Conference marks the launch of the BPF’s strategy to Redefine Real Estate.

The BPF’s Presidential Team, Grainger’s Helen Gordon, Landsec’s Robert Noel and Argent’s David Partridge, will take to the stage with BPF Chief Executive Melanie Leech, to set out a positive strategy for the future – with real estate’s importance to, and broad impact on, everyone’s lives, and its commitment to becoming more diverse and inclusive, at its heart.

This will draw on the findings of the biggest ever perception audit of the property sector from Populus.

The Conference will also bring together metro mayors and city leaders to highlight the shared value of public private partnerships and the critical importance of demonstrating the benefits of development to local communities.
