ADEPT Spring Seminar and Annual Awards

Reimagining place: a focus on town centres and high streets

Thursday 27 May, 1pm-6pm

After a year of virtual meetings we had hoped to be able to get together in person for this year's Spring Conference, but given the ongoing uncertainty we will again be meeting in a virtual space for our Spring event.

Following feedback from our Autumn Conference and being very aware of ‘Zoom fatigue’ we have decided that this year's event will take the form of a shorter interactive seminar and panel discussion. It will be preceded by the AGM. We will round off the afternoon with the much-anticipated Annual President's Awards.

The 2021 AGM, Spring Seminar and Annual President’s Awards will take place on Thursday 27 May:

13:00        Annual General Meeting

14:00        Spring Seminar: Reimagining place: a focus on town centres & high streets’. Jackie Sadek, Chief Operating Officer of UK Regeneration will chair, joined by Simon Quin, Executive Director of the High Streets Task Force, Andrew Forth, Interim Director of Policy and Public Affairs at RIBA, and Peter McIntyre, Executive Director of City Development, Sunderland City Council

16:00        Networking: join one of the Subject Boards as they discuss issues such as funding for highways maintenance, housing policy, digital connectivity and valuing the urban environment.

17:15        Annual President’s Awards ceremony

Thanks to our sponsors we are able to offer this event free of charge to all members (there is a charge for non-members). You can register for the seminar here.

Awards entries are being accepted until Friday 23 April. To see the categories and criteria and download an entry form please click here.
