What can I be involved in?


Attendees will be able to listen to carefully selected experts who have demonstrated real progress towards Net Zero in their projects. Delegates will learn in the conference which ambitious carbon-saving projects can be implemented into their own organisations. This is a unique opportunity for real immersion.

FOOTPRINT+ has four main conference streams:

  • Efficient Buildings

  • Zero Carbon Energy

  • Retrofit and the Circular Economy

  • Green Finance


In the exhibition outside the conference, delegates can 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. They will be able to discuss business in a relaxed and productive environment.

The away-day atmosphere of the event will encourage connection between people whose diaries are normally closed.


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 in 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, providing an unrivalled opportunity to make lasting contacts and form real business leads. 

What people are saying about FOOTPRINT+

What people are saying about FOOTPRINT+

  • FOOTPRINT+ is the place to showcase how we can build sustainable developments and reduce the carbon footprint of building projects. In tackling the climate crisis, these are the conversations we need to be having.
    Peter Kyle
    MP for Hove, Shadow Minister for Justice
  • 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
  • Despite the global impact of COVID-19 the UK property industry is resilient. FOOTPRINT will provide a forum for everyone to create a deliverable agenda for sustainable growth in the UK property market.
    Francis Hilton
    Pelican Developments
  • As we move to create the ‘new normal’ post Covid, we have an unprecedented opportunity to re-write the rules around our environmental impact on the planet, this conference does exactly that.

    Executive Director Brighton & Hove Economic Partnership
  • The MIPIM of Sustainability

  • At last an event that addresses the key issues facing design, construction and development in the UK. The rich mix of consultants, clients, stakeholders and government together with the great location will make Footprint a huge success.

  • Coming to listen to the conferences then you're going to be overwhelmed with material. There are four theatres, there are think tanks and they will keep you going all day long
    Romi Rawlings
    Commercial Director - Vestre
  • The idea of the jobs fair on the last day is brilliant. It's exactly what school and university leavers need, and as a CDO, I realise that finding high calibre candidates to work for your organisation is a hugely time absorbing process.
    Adam Brockley
    Founder of Scape Student Living
  • FOOTPRINT is a hugely exciting opportunity to address the climate emergency which we all face as global citizens.
    James Blakey

  • FOOTPRINT+ 2022 has been a force for good, and I look forward to coming back next year
    Will Arnold

  • FOOTPRINT+ has been set up to answer a need in the property market. We have all traipsed off to the South of France previously to meet up and discuss property issues. This is no longer a responsible action given the carbon footprint of getting there. Combined with the exit of Britain from the EU, we, in the UK market need to meet and discuss our national and international concerns. FOOTPRINT+ is set up to permit us to do this in an accessible, affordable and responsible way
    William Edgerley
    Director Edge Ahead Limited
  • The climate emergency is the biggest challenge humanity is facing. At WSP we are proud to be the catalysts of change in our industry. Now, we all need to come together to re-invent the way we design, the way we build and the way live. Footprint+ will help us do this
    Diego Padilla Philipps

  • This exhibition is going to grow, the subject matter is the most key in our industry. If you are not here you will be left behind!
    Daniel Englender
    Managing Director, Benjamin West
  • We find that developments in carbon reduction for the property industry are moving so quickly that the atmosphere at the event is tangibly exciting. We had 194 of the finest minds in the business imparting their knowledge in the theatres and around the bar to over 1500 delegates, and we realised that there is nowhere else that this happens. None of it is yet published, televised or blogged. That’s what makes FOOTPRINT+ unique.
    Tim Pyne
    Creative Director FOOTPRINT+
