Restore, re-use, regenerate! Rethinking town centres - in-person events throughout the UK

The decline of the High Street is a recurrent theme in the news, but many organisations are trying to reverse this trend by restoring historic town centre buildings and giving them vibrant, viable new uses that are attractive to their communities. These one-day conferences, throughout the UK, are jam-packed with talks, tours and networking for those who are helping to shape the future of High Streets and Town Centres.

These in-person events are aimed at people working in national and local government on economic and community regeneration, property, planning and the public realm; business improvement districts and similar partnerships; professionals (architects, planners, economists, project managers) working in the field as well as charities, social enterprises and community organisations rescuing, restoring and managing historic buildings in town centres.
