Why This Matters

What You'll Learn:

  • Who is deploying capital into Birmingham's BTR, and why.
  • The neighbourhoods attracting the most investor and development interest.
  • What the current pipeline is and if planning and policy will allow it to be built.
  • What Birmingham's renters are looking for in terms of design, amenities, ESG, health and well-being.
  • The innovative solutions maximising building efficiency, optimise comfort and productivity.
  • Fusing living and working — how to prepare for the trends in working from home and co-working that are transforming BTR space.


How You'll Do More Business: Research by BPF and Savills shows that the number of completed or planned BTR developments in the UK has increased 14% in a year, according to new figures. And as reported by Bisnow, after London, Birmingham attracted the most investment in 2021.


With investor confidence remaining strong in regional markets, and given CBRE's estimates that 56% of households in central Birmingham are private renters, and with BTR accounting for approximately a third of residential units currently under construction, it is critical for investors, developers and operators to deliver the type of living accommodation that meets the demands of Birmingham’s residents now, and into the future. Deep dive with us as we navigate the evolution of Birmingham’s BTR supply over the course of the next few years, and how to capitalise on the opportunities.


Why You Should Attend: Bisnow events bring together the UK's most influential commercial real estate investors, owners, developers, lenders, occupiers, consultants and advisors for dynamic and unforgettable content and dedicated networking sessions. With the largest audience of CRE professionals in the world, no one knows how to help your business more than us.

Why Birmingham Presented By Goodstone Living
UK BTR has been fortunate in the sense that the pandemic’s headwinds have largely failed to destabilise it. Whilst some other asset classes have struggled throughout the pandemic, BTR has stayed resilient. According to Knight Frank figures, of the £2.35B that was invested into the UK’s BTR sector in the first half of 2021, over 70% of funds committed were for schemes outside of London. And the market isn’t just catching the eye of domestic investors, but international money is confident in the market, with recent purchases by Cortland and Harrison Street, and KKR. Who is investing in Birmingham’s BTR market and why?
