Event Location

Event Summary

The HBF Future Talent Conference 2017 (previously the HBF Graduate Conference) is the HBF's main event each year to bring together graduates and other professionals entering the home building industry.  It forms an important part of company graduate and management development programmes for their recruits, who in the round will comprise many of the industry's future leaders.  The conference programme aims to provide learning insights on the main issues and changes for the industry from a national perspective that will enhance the delegates' knowledge and understanding as they commence their careers.

The conference begins with a plenary session of keynote industry speakers, before delegates are assembled into four smaller groups and rotated around four interactive workshops for the remainder of the day.

This residential event is being held at the East Midland Conference Centre (EMCC), part of the Nottingham University Campus and begins on 4 July with a networking buffet and evening speaker (speaker tbc) from 7pm.  As part of the package, delegates will then reside in the brand new Orchard Hotel, adjacent to the EMCC, before starting the next day's conference back at the EMCC, rested and ready to face the day.

At what will be an enjoyable and rewarding event, delegates will also be able to network and share their experiences with like minded peers from within the industry.
