Photography at the Housing 2019 conference and exhibition at Manchester Central for Wates Construction.
Housing 2019, the Chartered Institute of Housing’s annual event and Europe’s largest housing festival, takes place annually in June in Manchester. With 400 speakers, 400 key exhibitors, 10 streams of innovative content and a footfall of over 12,000 decision makers across three days – it is the biggest meeting place for the whole housing sector.
Ranked as a global leader for the delegate experience, Housing has taken place for 70 years in the UK and provides a platform for key stakeholders to come together to discuss, debate, partner, learn and improve the lives of the people we house.
Housing is the must-attend event for local authorities, housing associations, key partners and suppliers, government, housebuilders and developers. It brings the sector together to drive forward collectively.
The Wates Group is one of the largest family owned construction, property services and development companies in the United Kingdom.
The Group operates three core areas: Construction, Property Services and Residential Developments. There is also Wates Giving, a charitable foundation which has given away circa £10 million since 2008.
Manchester Central Convention Complex is known as Manchester Central and is an exhibition and conference centre converted from the former Manchester Central railway station.
The building has a distinctive arched roof with a 64-metre span – the second-largest railway station roof span in the United Kingdom.
After 89 years as a railway terminus, it closed to passengers in May 1969. It was renovated as an exhibition centre formerly known as the G-Mex Centre in 1982.
