Through our conference we will be exploring how online property transactions compare to the traditional branch channel and whether today’s housing strategy is working for UK families. It will also give the opportunity for industry experts and the audience to share views on how consumer needs and behaviour will change in the future in the buying and selling transaction. With over 250 delegates set to attend the event, we expect the day to be filled with passionate discussion and debate.”
