Networking for Innovation Conference

On 21st September, there will be a Networking for Innovation Conference held at The Cardiff Marriott. It is a collaboration between in Homes and Places and the Construction team in Economy Skills and Natural Resources.

The Welsh Government earlier this year signed two ground-breaking Pacts, with industry trade associations and the official bodies representing housing and councils in Wales, committing to work together to help boost the supply of market housing in Wales and to help deliver the Welsh Government’s 20,000 affordable housing target. This is reinforced by programmes such as The Wales Property Development Fund, The Innovative Housing Programme and legislation such as The Wellbeing of Future Generations Act.

Innovation, retrofit, sustainability and modern methods of construction are key to the 20,000 target, to support the reduction or elimination of fuel bills for residents in Wales. In addition, it will help to inform the Welsh Government about the type of homes it should support in the future.

We recognise across all sectors and throughout the supply chain there is an appetite to bring this innovation to Wales, and support our objectives. As a result, the Welsh Government is holding a networking event on 21st September, at The Cardiff Marriott from 10am – 3pm to promote the growth of these models, with the aim of bringing together the public and private sector to meet with suppliers offering innovative solutions and potential development partnerships.

Prior to the event an exhibitor and delegate manual will be provided to assist in understanding who will be attending to suit your objectives and to arrange appointments. Meeting spaces including private meeting rooms will be available on the day and for pre-booking.

Attendance at the event will be by pre-registration only, and limited to no more than 2 delegates per company / organisation. Could you please register against your preferred time slot.
