Young Group at RESI 2014
September 24, 2014
Once again, Young Group was in attendance at the annual Property Week RESI Conference, and sponsor of the ever-popular RESI Café.
The event was a resounding success with around 1,000 of the residential property sectors’ good and great in attendance.
All of the conference delegates received a copy of the latest biannual PRSupdate publication. The overarching theme of this issue is ‘Delivering the Private Rented Sector’, which was received with great enthusiasm and complemented the themes presented by the event’s speakers.
Delegates this year heard from; Brandon Lewis, (Minister of State for Housing and Planning), Mark Prisk (Former Minister of State for Housing and Local Government), Liz Peace (Chief Executive of the British Property Federation) and Andrew Stanford (Head of the Private Rented Sector Taskforce).
I attended a great ‘In Focus Session’ to hear a raft of speakers talk about ‘The Evolution of PRS in the UK’.
The session was chaired by Peter Bolton King (who has written for PRSupdate previously) and also featured Cllr Richard Greening, Michela Hancock (Grainger), Steve Sanham (HUB Group) and Matt Britton (Get Living London).
It was a pleasure to be involved with the event again, to catch up with existing clients and contacts and to make new acquaintances. Above all, we are proud to see that the Private Rented Sector is receiving so much focus from all corners of the property sector.
