EVENTS UPDATE | In-person events booking now

From 24 June, Place North West will be bringing property people back together again at conferences, social gatherings and debates.

“The days of being kept apart are nearly behind us,” said Paul Unger, publisher of Place North West. “No longer will you have to make do with video. Starting in June, Place events will offer you the chance to re-engage, get up to speed with the new-look market, spread your business network and rebuild your profile.

“We cannot wait to bring our unrivalled blend of expert market intelligence and powerful property networking to our community of industry leaders. I and the rest of the Place team are looking forward once again to seeing you in the room for social gatherings, tailored conferences and, of course, Place Party, which has now sold out.”

Below you will find the Place events that are scheduled to take place in-person in 2021.

Now is the perfect time to plan your return to conferences and industry get-togethers. Our team is ready and waiting to help with any questions you might have about attending and promoting your business at events. Email
