UKAA News Buzz 15/03/22 – Brought to you by Greystar, UKAA Founder Sponsor

March 15th 2022

YOUR BTR NEWS BUZZ

EDITOR’S NOTE

Welcome to NewsBuzz, brought to you this week by Greystar, our long term supporter and a UKAA founding sponsor. There’s more information from Greystar below but they have very kindly given me back the intro to tell you what’s happening in the UKAA world.  

Our regional growth programme continues apace. Last week the NorthWest hub held their first event of 2022; more than 50 members met at Material Source in Manchester for an important workshop on Mental Health Awareness – Best Practice in BTR.  

The Scottish hub will launch at on the 31st March with two high profile panels looking at BTR in Scotland: “A new deal for tenants”. Join us at Shoosmiths offices in Glasgow to discuss how BTR can help realise the nation’s ‘Housing to 2040’ ambitions. We’re planning to launch more hubs in the Midlands, London and elsewhere over the course of the year.

We’re also working hard finalising arrangements for the EXPO on 28th April, we have more than 370 registrations already, 37 exhibitors and this week we’ll be announcing the first of 10 workshops and presentations that will run throughout the day. There will be lots of highlights including the launch of the Best Practice Guide. Remember its free to attend too.

As well as in-person events our 2022 online programme is well underway, with more webinars and forums being scheduled as we go to press, including Investor / Lender sessions and an emergency Senior Leaders Forum on the Ukraine war. Check our events page for details.  

Finally, a quick heads up that Who Lives In Build to Rent, the third edition (London) will be published on 30th  March. London First are holding a breakfast launch event and an invite can be found later in this newsletter. 
 
In the meantime, enjoy the latest edition of News Buzz!
