"Public Sector Property – The Next Chapter, A Changing World"

Join us to review the biggest areas that our members are facing and identify the solutions that can help make a difference. With such an enormous period of change and uncertainty, the ACES National Conference 2017 is the perfect opportunity for public sector property professionals to come together, to listen, share thoughts, take stock and re-energise. Over the two days the conference will examine and explore the political and policy environment, the economic outlook, the impact of Brexit and the latest thinking across the sector.

This year’s conference will be at the Royal Armouries in Leeds on the 28th and 29th September.

The Royal Armouries is in a central location in Leeds with good connectivity by both rail, car and air.

The conference will have a minimum of 5 hours CPD per day and will cover a range of subject areas.
