About the Right to Build Expos
These events are produced and curated specifically for each region’s custom and self-build and related communities. The Expos match up custom and self-build ambitions with services, support and experience, and explore how custom and self-build housing can be delivered effectively for each region.
This Expo will be the next in a series of regionally-focused custom and self-build housing events running around the UK until 2019, presented by NaCSBA, Right to Build Taskforce and Wood for Good, in partnership.
Who should attend Expos
Local authorities, community groups and individuals, architects, landowners, developers, planners, custom and self-builders and any individual or group looking to start or progress a custom or self-build project for themselves.
Benefits of attending
You will get unrivalled insight into the custom and self-build situation in your region – and the best way to get started – from the people who have actually done it. Be inspired by interviews and panel discussions with leaders of local developments. Get advice on legal, financial and political practicalities. Hear case studies from local and international custom and self-build schemes. The expo will galvanize you and your team with in-depth access to success stories and ‘how-to’s’ from other regions. Get directly connected to expert support from the Task Force and understand how to maximize the full potential of the custom and self-build opportunities in your region.
Get great exposure for your organisation
