With over 450 attendees, 10 sponsors, 30 exhibitors, 4 keynote sessions and 18+ afternoon discussions, the Annual BTR Conference really was this year’s must-attend BTR event, and your support enabled the event to be a great success.
The conference sessions were followed by dinner, drinks and the UKAA and HomeViews industry awards. These focused attention on BTR excellence in practice, including UKAA Sustainability Champion 2022, Quintain Living, for their Utility Monitoring Tool, and Stephanie Smith who was awarded the UKAA Recognition Award 2022 for her contribution to the industry-wide Swift Bunny EDI survey in partnership with the UKAA.
From the hard-working organisers to our sponsors, exhibitors, speakers and attendees, it’s fantastic that so many people with a vested interest in the future of BTR took the time to come together and share their expertise and passion for ensuring the industry is the best that it can possibly be.
A summary of the Annual BTR Conference along with images of the event can be found here and in keeping with the headline theme, the Pursuit of Excellence, I would welcome your feedback on the Conference, enabling us to capture key learnings for future UKAA events.
Many thanks once again and if you are interested in sponsoring, exhibiting, speaking at or attending the UKAA Annual BTR Conference & Industry Awards 2023, please do get in touch.
