Our fringe events and what you need to know 

Addleshaw Goddard is proud to be sponsoring the UK's Real Estate Investment & Infrastructure Forum (UK REiiF), a groundbreaking new forum aiming to drive economic growth and inclusive investment across the UK. 

The objectives, as set out by the event organisers, are to connect people, places and businesses to accelerate the Levelling Up Agenda, whilst unlocking sustainable, inclusive and transformational investment across the UK. This 3-day event will bring together the public sector – with every core UK city and region involved – alongside government, investors, funders, developers, housebuilders, and more. The event will include over 5000 attendees, 250 speakers across 14 stages, and over 100 exhibitors including every major city. 

Supported by a high number of regional combined authorities, local councils and government departments, as well as the largest developers and investors from across the UK and internationally, this event will gather all the key players, influencers and decision makers within the investment and real estate markets to highlight investment and development opportunities, whilst connecting and facilitating new relationships to drive economic growth through development and regeneration.

As part of Addleshaw Goddard's sponsorship, we will be hosting several fringe events in Leeds across the three days. Our events programme is outlined below.

Programme of Events

17th MAY

17:00 – 19:00: Housing the TikTok Generation: Is renting the new buying?

Is shared living ready for take-off? What do changing planning regulations mean for the sector? And what does the housing market of today and tomorrow look like for young people? These questions are topical given recent news that planning reforms have halted, resulting in questions from some and worries from others about how we will house the next generation. 

Hear from Millie Dodd (Just Build Homes), Jermaine Browne (re:shape Land) and Ghislaine Halpenny (Regal London) as we explore what's next for the housing market, and the implications this will have for developers, funders, and the real estate sector as a whole.
