A new Custom Build Summit has been launched, taking place on 26 March 2020 at the NEC, Birmingham. The one-day conference is an opportunity for a range of housing professionals to come together to discover the opportunities and barriers to growth in the UK for the Custom Build and serviced-plots market.
The Custom Build Summit is organised by the Homebuilding & Renovating Shows team, with the National Custom and Self Build Association as a partner, and is the only conference dedicated to Custom Build practice.
The content of the summit has been curated to appeal to a range of housing professionals, from developers to policy makers offering insight into emerging best practice, issues and opportunities around the Right to Build legislation and more.
Who should attend
The show is also co-located with the National Homebuilding & Renovating Show at the NEC, giving a fully rounded view of the sector.
