EG takes the lead hosting some of UKREiiF’s most insightful fringe events. Our public programme is open to all delegates and features high-level content, spirited debates and engaging discussions. This year, we dig into the complexities of impact investment, infrastructure, the evolution of real estate and the partnerships needed to make a positive impact on society.

At EG, we believe in the unique power of the industry to effect change. Join us as we highlight the vital role commercial real estate plays in delivering an economically sound and sustainable future. This isn’t just an event – it’s a front-row seat at the transformation of an industry and you’re invited to be a part of the narrative.

Join us for:

  • A full day of enlightening sessions in the Tournament Gallery, which explore impact investment, infrastructure, the evolution of real estate and more.
  • EG’s spotlight session on the Education Stage, where we delve into the financial exposure faced by councils and its implications for economic regeneration in our thought-provoking panel, councils face financial exposure: Implications for economic regeneration.
  • Whether you’re on site or on the airwaves, look out for our EG podcasts, recorded live from the UKREiiF studio, bringing the news directly to your ears.
