CHIC Conference & Exhibition 2021

17/11/2021 @ 8:00 AM 5:00 PM

A MUST ATTEND EVENT FOR HOUSING PROFESSIONALS

In 2020 we hosted our normal annual conference event online through our CHIC Webinars. In 2021 we have every intention to host our usual annual event in person!

We now have considerable experience of providing a platform where members of the social housing community can network and share their ideas on how we can collectively steer the sector in the right direction.

There is also going to be an exhibition running alongside the conference with members from CHIC’s supply chain. Exhibition and Sponsorship opportunities will be available shortly, so be sure to watch this space for updates.

Hosted by BBC Home Editor Mark Easton

Over the last 5 years of CHIC conferences, both virtually and in Worcester, BBC Home Editor Mark Easton has continually brought enthusiasm, curiosity and charisma to our annual events. “I always look forward to my annual pilgrimage to the Sixways.”

Throughout the day, there will be a series of workshops and conference sessions to discuss the latest developments from the social housing sector, delivered by a wide range of informed speakers.

Please find our full programme below

Our Workshops

08:50 – 09:40 BUILDING AND PEOPLE SAFETY – CAN WE BE DOING MORE?

Learn what others are doing to change their approach to keeping residents safe. Discuss the sectors response to the Building Safety Bill.

09:15 EXHIBITION OPENS

10:00 – 10:30 PITCHVIEW SUITE – CONFERENCE LAUNCH

Mark Easton and CHIC’s Chair Maggie Punyer will be launching CHIC’s new services and announcing the winners of our Trainee of the Year Awards.

10:50 – 11:40 DYNAMIC PURCHASING – HOW DOES THIS WORK?

Hear how a Dynamic Purchasing System offers an alternative, efficient route to market to more traditional procurement solutions. Debate how it might help you to deliver efficiencies?

10:50 – 11:40 DECARBONISATION – HOW ARE WE GOING TO ACHIEVE ‘NET ZERO’?

Achieving net zero carbon is perhaps the biggest challenge the sector has faced for a generation. Find out how others are tackling it and how the Welsh Government has forged its own ambitious path.

12:10 – 13:00 ENGAGING THE SUPPLY CHAIN – HOW FAR SHOULD YOU GO?

Learn how clients who separate materials supply from contracting services achieve savings, improve quality and how their contractors take less risk. Share your own experiences and learn how CHIC can help create the golden thread.

12:10 – 13:00 THE FUTURE IS TECHNOLOGY – SO HOW IS IT CHANGING WHAT WE DO?

New technology in homes helps to monitor energy use and so improve efficiency. New technology in contract management helps to improve process efficiencies. Find out how others are using technology to improve their customer service.

14:00 – 14:50 NEWBUILD – WHAT’S CHANGING?

Is MMC reality or bluster? Learn about some of the experiences of those who have embraced the change already and debate how the sector can really change its approach.

14:00 – 14:50 STRATEGIC ASSET MANAGEMENT – WHAT DOES BRILLIANT LOOK LIKE?

Hear what others have been doing to ensure that strategic asset management is central to their corporate planning. Existing residents need great homes, so how do we make sure they don’t get trumped by the development programme?

15:15 – 16:15 KEYNOTE

All delegates and exhibitors will engage in this plenary session. Mark Easton will chair a lively debate with leading sector figures, that looks forward to changes in the housing and construction sectors.

15:15 EXHIBITION CLOSES
