Delegates will hear how to develop an estates vision, an estates strategy including facilities management, an asset management plan and how to ensure that budgets and finance plans are in place whilst preparing defined and transparent procurement procedures to achieve value for money.

Delegates from Responsible Bodies, including local authorities, dioceses, schools, trusts, multi-academies and many other public and private sector stakeholder organisations.

High-profile, expert speakers from both public and private sectors are will deliver inspirational and informative presentations in the morning plenary after which the day will continue with a range of focussed learning opportunities based on best practice case studies. in a series of 40 minute breakout sessions.
