How to develop small sites
Our conferences bring together architects, developers and investors who have done it and explain how they started, from raising finance to marketing and selling.

They also offer practical tips and opportunities to network with investors, developers and other property professionals.
New conferences coming soon

Our conferences and masterclasses are all about helping people find land, obtain finance and minimise risk. In 2020 we will also be addressing issues to do with bidding for sites, planning, project monitoring and cost control.
