Housing 2020 – the largest event of its type in Europe – was set to take place in Manchester in late June.

Ocean Media Group, which organises the event and also owns Inside Housing, said in a statement that the conference will now take place from 2-4 September.

It added: “We are disappointed at having to reschedule what was on track to be a very successful event, but we feel this is the responsible action to take under the current circumstances.

“No one knows how the situation will develop over the coming weeks and we did not want to delay this move and cause further concern to our loyal audience.”

Delegate, sponsor, visitor and exhibitor bookings will be automatically transferred to the new dates, while Visit Manchester is working with hotels and accommodation providers to transfer bookings.

The new dates mean Housing 2020 will now overlap with another CIH event, Total Housing.

A number of other events in the housing calendar, including the National Housing Federation’s Finance Conference and the Local Government Association’s Housing and Regeneration Conference, have already been cancelled or postponed because of the pandemic.

HOMES UK, the sector’s second-largest conference also organised by Ocean Media Group, is set to go ahead as planned on 25-26 November in London.
