The Princes Regeneration Trust annual conference is being hosted this year in partnership with Historic England and Heritage Lottery Fund on the 1 & 2 of December in Manchester at MOSI.
Confirmed speakers so far include the Chief Executives of the three conference partners and Manchester City Council; international speakers from Germany and the Netherlands, senior representatives of DCLG/BIS, Sheffield City Council, Northern Ireland’s DoE, The Guardian, Second Home, Igloo Regeneration, Urban Splash, The Architectural Heritage Fund and several community-led organisations.
The conference will explore the theme of re-use of industrial heritage. The event will be split into two days with slightly different focus:
• Day One will explore the role of the public sector in encouraging the creative reuse of industrial heritage and commercial opportunities presented by historic buildings, with a focus on creative industries, development and regeneration uses. It aims to connect with businesses, investors and local/national decision makers.
• Day Two will explore opportunities to develop new uses and engage with commercial partners to leverage investment and funding with a focus on not-for-profit groups, community organisations, heritage sector partners and historic building owners.
