DEVELOPMENT SUMMIT WAS A GREAT SUCCESS!!
Posted on November 14, 2016.The Global Guardians team had a fantastic time at this years Development Summit in Birmingham last week, in partnership with Estates Gazette. The ICC was absolutely buzzing as Developers, Banks, Architects and Property Agents and Professionals arrived from all around the UK, for what was a brilliant summit full of discussion, education and networking.
The day kicked off with the Chair's opening remarks, followed by a talk from Savills Research Director regarding the landscape of the economy post BREXIT. The day consisted of various presentations and panel discussions which got all of the property and development juices flowing regarding various industry topics such as connectivity, sector growth, greenbelt & mixed use opportunities and why we should invest in planned and place-making. Stuart Woolgar, Security Director of Global Guardians hosted a presentation regarding the Life Cycle of Vacant Property, Security Issues with Developments and How to Avoid Empty Business Rates. This was an extremely interesting and educational topic, which was discussed in a full seminar room, turning the heads of all individuals as Stuart discussed how much Global Guardians had saved clients such as JLL, Capco and various Housing Associations and Royal Boroughs and Councils.
The Development Summit was an overall success and great opportunity for property professionals to build relationships with firms, individuals and spark opportunity and growth within the ever expanding property market. We look forward to seeing you next year Birmingham!
