Share Article

Senior property professionals in Manchester will be gathering next month to discuss the housing market in the city at Old Trafford – home of Manchester United. An important meeting of minds and property discussion, the debate in partnership with Show House Magazine is to be chaired by Lord Hague and will discuss the key housing issues affecting Manchester and the wider north-west.

Chaired by Lord Hague, this debate is essential for the key figures of the housing market to discuss the important issues that affect the property industry in Manchester and beyond

The inaugural Manchester event is to be held on the morning of Wednesday 10 May 2017 and will cover the important role that Manchester has to play as part of the Northern Powerhouse, and it will be debated in front of a specialist audience. Kicking off with a discussion about why Manchester is such a property hot spot and moving on to highlight issues facing the market as well as sharing opportunities and celebrating the city’s successes, the morning promises to cover a wide range of topics affecting the wider north-west.

Rupert Bates, editorial director for Show House and says: “It is an incredibly important time for the property market as we head towards Brexit and also this recent snap general election which may also throw the cat amongst the property pigeons. Manchester is a thriving city with an extremely active housing market; leading the way not just in the north of England but also as a key player on a global level. This debate is essential for the key figures of the housing market to discuss the important issues that affect the property industry in Manchester and beyond.”

The debate will be attended by some of the largest housebuilders in the North West as well as key players in the property market. Speakers on the panel include Johnny Caddick from Moda Living and Michael Howard from urbanbubble. Sponsors of the event include NHBC and Villeroy & Boch.

Bates adds: “To be chaired by Lord Hague, we have a range of speakers debating various housing subjects that directly affect Manchester. The morning promises to hold challenging and stimulating discussions about the city and the region's housing future. Open discussions of this nature are essential to the industry as we work towards delivering the million new homes that we need in the country and the key role that Manchester will play in this.”
