A free-to-attend conference for housing and land management professionals

Manchester 6th March and London 8th March

GIS for Housing

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and web mapping support a range of operational and strategic activities for housing associations and for the wider land and property market. It can be applied to managing property portfolios, asset management, negotiating grounds maintenance contracts, expanding resident services and allocating staff.

This conference will look at the practical application of GIS in helping to reduce costs, increase efficiencies and improve services in the housing sector.

Who should attend?

This free-to-attend conference is aimed at asset managers, business managers, IT managers and GIS managers from the UK housing and land management sectors. 

This event will be equally relevant to those considering investing in GIS technology for the first time and for those looking to get more from their existing investment. It will also be useful to those seeking a refresher in using Cadcorp tools. 

Breaks and a free lunch will provide ample opportunity for networking with like-minded professionals.
