Ocean Media awards Showcase Housing 2021 contract

Showcase has been contracted by Ocean Media to supply events services to Housing 2021 at Manchester Central this September.

Housing 2021 is the Chartered Institute of Housing’s annual conference. The event comprises more than 8,500 attendees, 10 theatres, more than 500 speakers, 400 sponsors and exhibitors attending over the course of three days.

Sarah Payling, event director of Housing, said: The Housing conference has taken place for 70 years and we cannot wait to deliver it again in September. In 2019 it won AEO conference of the year and the IBP event of the year and we guarantee an award-winning return in 2021 backed by our key event partners like Showcase.”

Ben Collings, managing director of Showcase, said of the contract win: “After a year of delivering events on screen we are thrilled to be designing, planning and building theatre stages and exhibition stands for real people, nothing beats the buzz of an audience and seeing people interacting.”
