6-8th June 2023
FOOTPRINT+ gathers representatives from every sector of the UK property market to discuss, discover and about state of the art methods to achieve Net Zero in real estate.
Our exhibition space enables stakeholders and experts to meet face-to-face, learn from each other and build the relationships required for putting sustainable solutions into practice.
"The vibe inside was actually electric. There were designers, council members, contractors, politicians, project managers, developers, insurers, communications specialists, academics, funders, all with the same goal, to share knowledge, and have conversations that can change things. The talks covered all bases; there was a hugely diverse line up of topics. The energy from the whole week, the adrenaline from speaking, and all of the new information whirring around in my head was exhausting. That sums up the whole conference nicely I think, education, unexpected conversations, new ideas, and sunflowers."
Kelly Harrison - Associate Director Whitby Wood
A unique opportunity
The event is attended by developers, local authorities, housing associations, investors and the managers of large estates like the NHS, supermarkets and logistics companies, all of whom must radically reduce their buildings' carbon emissions.
At FOOTPRINT+ you are able to meet with local authorities, developers, environmental consultants, architects and engineers, together with lawyers, energy suppliers and project managers all of whom have current and relevant experience and opportunities.
FOOTPRINT+ is organised by well-known consultants from the industry; we invite the most-informed speakers around, so the level of expertise at the event is of the very highest calibre.
Apart from that, we provide beautiful breakfast briefings, thrilling think tanks, crowded conferences and perfect parties. What’s not to like?
Network with developers and clients working towards increased circularity in construction projects
Attendees are able to listen to carefully selected experts all who have demonstrated real progress towards Net Zero. Conference delegates learn from their experience to enable them to implement ambitious carbon saving projects in their own organisations. FOOTPRINT+ is a unique opportunity for real immersion in the subject.
FOOTPRINT+ has four main conference streams:
Zero Carbon Energy
Retrofit and the Circular Economy
In the Exhibition outside the conference, delegates meet selected companies and organisations who can help them put what they have learnt about in the conference into practice on the ground.
In the Forum delegates can book face to face meetings, either in advance or on the day, with other delegates and conference speakers via our purpose built FOOTPRINT+ app. They can then discuss business in a relaxed and productive environment.
The away-day atmosphere of the event encourages connection between people whose diaries are normally closed.
ROUND TABLE POLICY DEBATE
Delegates can engage in high-level debate and exchange of ideas to shape the property planning policy for a zero-carbon future.
Central Government is realising that fundamental policy changes need to be made to reduce embodied carbon in developments. This is where they can meet with the industry to agree a workable way forward which avoids over-complication and contradiction in legislation.
This is vital to enable change to take place as quickly as it must.
FOOTPRINT+ is located on Brighton's seafront, giving us a unique meeting space in the centre of the city. The 3-day programme is designed to facilitate networking opportunities for exhibitors and sponsors alike.
At Breakfast Briefings, Evening Receptions, and Think Tanks, companies are given the opportunity to promote themselves to a handpicked selection of delegates from their potential client-base. This has been proven to provide an unrivalled opportunity to make lasting contacts and form real business leads.
Unlock net zero
Unlock net zero is a knowledge hub focusing on the practical reality of the transition to a net zero future. Net Zero refers to achieving a balance between the amount of Greenhouse Gas emissions produced and the amount removed from the atmosphere. To achieve this requires large-scale and extensive innovation across the UK energy system. This will involve disruptive change across all sectors and industries.
Unlock net zero seeks to inform, educate, and connect people and organisations involved in adopting a net zero approach, identifying the technologies, infrastructure and behaviour change required.
