Tpas at the CIH Conference 2019 - what are we up to?

Thursday 6th of June 2019

Tpas once again have a jam-packed schedule at the CIH Conference and Exhibition 2019 in Manchester later this month.

Every year we find new ways of creating conversations, building valuable relationships and raising the profile of engagement.

So, how can you hear the latest in engagement from the leading tenant engagement experts?

Here’s how:

  • We will be launching our exciting new Commercial Membership offer to Contractors, Sub-contractors and Affiliates. Contact us about how we can work together in the future. Look at the website w/c 24th June to find out more
  • Hear from Tpas Business Development Manager, Michael Hill on procurement in the Insight Theatre
  • Hear from Tpas CEO, Jenny Osbourne on the panel to discuss “The Tenant and Resident Voice – engagement and participation”
  • Head over to the “LifeSwap Live” Fringe Session, talking stigma and stereotypes
  • Come visit us on the Mears Stand D28, on Wednesday for drinks and a chat about all things engagement
  • And finally join us at our own networking event at Peaky Blinders Bar – and that’s an order...

We encourage all of you to come and say "Hi" and support our schedule as much as you can throughout the three days.

Make sure you pay a visit to the Campaign for a Voice for Tenants Stand D9, too.

There will also be a number of us dotted about the conference, attending workshops and seminars and networking at various sector events – so stop us if you see us or find us at our organised events!
