The end of last month saw Manchester once again hosting the largest housing event in Europe, with thousands of visitors descending upon Manchester Central between 28th and 30th June. The conference and exhibition are scheduled to stay in Manchester until 2022, which is great news for the North West. We are already looking forward to next year.
The annual Housing Conference 2016 is almost upon us. Kwest is looking forward to visiting the exhibition and networking with all our social housing partners across the industry.
We'll see you there!
HouseMark's last STAR analysis report showed that spring and summer are the most common times of the year to carry out resident STAR surveys, followed by the autumn. Social housing landlords across the country are in the process of planning their next project, and with the latest version of HouseMark's benchmarking report due for release at the end of this year, updated comparisons for CORE questions across the sector will soon be widely available.

If you are considering a survey in the next few months, why not give us a call for a quote or advice. We'd be happy to help.
