Practical magic – housing technology for today

Following on from our popular Practical Magic events in Manchester and London, we are flipping the conversation at our Birmingham event to hear from housing's tech leaders.

The world is bursting with incredible new technology – technology that you could be using TODAY to improve your customer services and deliver a better experience for your residents.

But frustrations remain that housing providers are being held back by cumbersome legacy systems that are no longer fit for purpose, don't work with new technology and leave us struggling to make any sense of our data.

Fear not, however. There are still great things happening out there and you will get to hear from some of those people and organisations who are making great leaps forward with their use of technology.

Covering everything from housing management, income collection and the customer experience to digital engagement, repairs and asset management, the day is about exploring the possibilities of what's already available.

With Amazon and Microsoft among the tech firms coming to Birmingham, you will get the opportunity to talk direct to leading companies, hear from tech leaders, engage in lively debates and network with like-minded people, who are probably in the same boat as you when it comes to the state of their IT systems.

We’re also pleased to announce that the HACT Innovation LaunchPad is among the sessions confirmed.

We promise you won't be bored, and will come away with the inspiration and contacts to make your ideas a reality.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Kathryn Hall, Director of Digital, Clarion
  • Adrian Moore, Director of IT, bpha
  • Jay Saggar, Digital Lead, HACT
  • Sam Young, HQN Lead associate for digital transformation
  • Julie Alexander, Director of Technology and Innovation, Places for People
