Great Places Housing Group

2020 Managers Conference

Great Places Housing Group have been providing affordable social housing across the North West and Yorkshire since 2005 and as one of the largest home building housing associations in the north they work in some of the region’s most diverse neighbourhoods. They are truly committed to creating great homes, great communities, and great people and in the year of 2020 undertook a new adventure in their quest to do so. From April 2020, Great Places merged and joined forces with Equity Housing to help deliver on their joint strategic ambitions and tackle the housing crisis together. We worked closely with Great Places Housing Group and Connectin from the outset to ensure their vision was brought to life, and that their virtual conference exuded the production value and engagement beyond that of a typical ‘zoom’ call. From our Virtual Control Room, we used our extensive suite of expertise and technology to weave together a combination of live presentations and pre-recorded content. This included a total of 11 presenters who were brought in remotely live from their own homes, with the presentations then being mixed with slides and content before being broadcast live via a bespoke event website as created by Connectin.

Overall, the virtual conference was another great success with over 180 managers tuning in to the conference live, and with the broadcast now being available to watch on demand post event.
