If you would like to learn the latest updates and technical guidance across the built environment, land and property, then this is the date to put in your diary. This popular conference offers essential and locally relevant solutions for implementation into your daily practice and provides you with a selection of break-out sessions tailored to meet your specific learning requirements.

Everyone has different areas they are particularly interested in, so whether your focus is the built environment, land or property, there is a variety of topics designed specifically for your CPD needs. 

Here is a small selection of what you’ll acquire:

  • An economic update for Surrey, providing essential market insight for the region as well as benchmarking against the UK as a whole.
  • An update on physical infrastructure projects required to deliver the economic development and spatial growth priorities in the region.
  • Essential technical guidance and insights around appropriate contract selection, reinstatement cost assessments, surveying modern methods of construction and assessing health and wellbeing in buildings.
  • Expert legal advice on a range of key issues, including residential landlord and tenant, planning law, restrictive covenants, end of lease negotiations and service charges in commercial properties.
  • Tailor your day to best suit your personal CPD requirements, giving you the opportunity to gain a maximum of 6 hours CPD.
  • Utilise networking opportunities with colleagues from your local area.

As well as breakout sessions, your day also covers an essential round up of key developments in your region. This will help you to explore the potential challenges and opportunities facing your business in the next 12 months.

Not just a day of CPD


As well as bringing industry leading speakers to your doorstep to help enhance your career, your day also provides dedicated networking time.
We all know networking is a vital part of working in our sector, but as busy professionals we can struggle to find the time to do this effectively. With this in mind, we have set aside time to give you a chance to catch up with peers in your region. One of these is a two-course hot lunch (which is included in the ticket price for anyone attending the whole day) while you connect with colleagues old and new.
