Place North West's first major housing conference attracted a sell-out audience to City Tower in Manchester in February.
Speakers included Deborah McLaughlin, director of the Homes & Communities Agency and Cheshire East Council's housing manager Adrian Fisher. There was a spirited presentation from Jennie Daly, managing director of Harrow Estates, part of Redrow, which was many guests' favourite speech of the day.
