RESI 11

RESI 11 – A fantastic event!

Posted by Stuart Prior

RESI 11, Property Week’s 5th Annual Conference was certainly one of the best.  A fantastic turnout of more than 1,000 delegates and some of the residential sectors most influential people attended this year.

The Conference kicked off with what can only be described as a ‘to the point/brutally honest’ financial overview by Fredrik Nerbrand, which certainly had a few people shuffling uncomfortably in their seats.  However, the mood was soon lifted by The Rt Hon Eric Pickles MP, who addressed the conference with a rousing speech and his vision for “homes we can be proud of” which set the tone nicely for the rest of the day.

The Gala dinner, and the now obligatory after dinner drinks at Merlin’s Bar, was the usual social success.  I say social, but I’m sure more business is done in that bar than most meetings throughout the year! Hangovers aside, I’m sure it was all well worth it.

As Gold Sponsors for the past couple of years, Mainstay are proud to be linked to the biggest residential event in the property calendar, and would like to thank everybody we met for a great few days, and look forward to seeing you all very soon.
