REGISTER NOW | Virtual Event: Redefining Business as Usual

Remote working, virtual planning and design, and the adoption of new technology – these are just some of the changing business trends that are being accelerated amid the Covid-19 pandemic. But how much of it will stay once lockdown is lifted?

In this debut virtual event hosted by Place North West and Luma Marketing on Thursday 7 May, 10-11am, expert speakers from across the North West property world, including Ian Chapman, director at Fairhursts Design Group and Kevin Whitmore, head of the North at becg, will discuss how things are being done differently now, and which new habits and lessons will stick with us after the health crisis subsides.

Panellists include:

Ian Chapman, director, Fairhursts Design Group

Kevin Whitmore, director – head of North and Midlands, becg

Jon Frost, director, Deetu

Gemma Leonard, partner, DAC Beachcroft

Sue Manley, strategy director, Placemarque

The event will be chaired by Sarah Townsend, editor of Place North West.

A new format for Place North West, this virtual event is a chance to learn and engage with the industry at a time of unprecedented disruption and flux.

The business practices that are filtering across the industry are likely to impact future placemaking policy across a range of sectors, from town centre regeneration to offices and homes, and this event aims to explore that.

There will be opportunities to ask questions and connect with others as guests would at the usual roster of Place events. By registering, you will gain access to the Place North West virtual event app where you can network and interact with other attendees from the North West property industry.

Registration is free. Please sign up below – you must register to access the virtual event. If you can’t see the form, contact
