The National Association of Estate Agents has announced that the housing minister will be among speakers at its national conference next month. Around 500 delegates are expected to attend.
Gavin Barwell will discuss the Government’s housing plan and there will be time for a 20-minute Q&A at the event on February 9 in Bishopsgate, London.
The event will be hosted by Sally Bundock, a business and financial journalist at the BBC, and other speakers include Peter Andrews from the Bank of England, Miles Shipside from Rightmove and Mark Palmer from Pret A Manger as well as a talk on proptech from James Dearsley of the Digital Marketing Bureau.
David Mackie, president of the NAEA, said: “Last year was a busy year for housing and 2017 is set to be even busier.
“The housing market continues to dominate the political and news agenda, so we’re thrilled to have secured the housing minister as a speaker at this year’s event. It’s now more important than ever that we understand what the Government has planned for housing in the immediate and longer term.
“The session will give attendees an opportunity to share their views with the housing minister on what’s affecting them within the sector, and to raise any views or concerns.”
