ADEPT Autumn Conference 5th & 6th November - book your place now

5 October 2020

Place Directors and their strategic partners have a key role in driving and supporting places to recover and renew from the COVID-19 pandemic. The ADEPT Autumn Conference will give time and space for reflection.

There are lessons to be learnt from the crisis, including looking at a new approach to commuting and working from home, how effectively we have responded to a long-term emergency, how we deal with the largest economic crisis since the Great Depression, and what does it all mean for tackling climate change?

As well as reflecting on the lessons learnt, we will consider and develop our strategies to drive the recovery and renewal of our localities.

Two themes will underpin the conference – tackling climate change and meeting the funding challenge – which will be reflected in the plenary sessions. You can see the revised conference programme here.

We have secured fantastic speakers from DfT, the Behavioural Insights Team, EY, University of Oxford, Institute of Place Management, Odgers Berndtson, MIND and Confederation of Passenger Transport.

Book your place at the conference here.

Unfortunately the shift to a virtual conference means we are unable to host the Annual President's Awards dinner as part of the Autumn Conference. However, all entries will be carried over to the Annual Dinner scheduled for Thursday 27th May 2021. Entrance to the awards remains open. You can find out more information and download an entry form here.
