The new platform aims to emulate the success of the flagship Housing Technology Executive Conference event, which for 12 years has brought together housing professionals and IT providers to share ideas and solutions that improve services to tenants. CEO George Grant, co-founder of Housing Technology, sees the new on-demand service as a key development, stemming both from the recent pandemic and the online approach adopted for the latest executive conference.
“At our last two-day online event, over 450 housing decision makers watched over 30 presentations representing 20 hours of high-quality content,” he said.
“This response to pandemic restrictions is fueling the new on-demand service with quality content and the result is a groundbreaking media platform capable of truly advancing the people who matter most – tenants and housing provider customers. If we made some progress there, so it was worth it.
The Housing Technology On Demand streaming platform builds on this groundbreaking 12th conference incorporating live reporting with insights from experts. It combines live presentations, demonstrations and interviews with a professional studio crew and keynote speeches.
Musician MIDGE URE, which opened this year’s conference, believes the new on-demand streaming service will galvanize innovation in the social housing media space, noting, “It’s good to see how a truly new development like streaming can benefit the social housing sector. If you think back to LiveAid in 1985, a lot of what we were doing then, broadcasting across two continents, was new. And look at how far technology has come since that time in music.
Another prominent commentator also sees the transition as a transformative development. Lord JOHN BIRDSthe Big problem founder, said, “I’ve worked with these guys for a few years and seen them garner a terrific industry response, with collaboration between the housing associations on the one hand and the software vendors of the other. By adding this highly innovative on-demand streaming channel, that sense of innovation through collaboration is so much stronger and more immediate. This means that key developments will be communicated earlier and big tech and government interests can be held accountable in an accessible online digital format.
Launch co-anchor, national television news correspondent Emma Birchley, was impressed by George Grant’s genuine drive to innovate housing to improve the lives of social housing tenants.
“George has a vision to deliver something new for the industry with a professional team helping to make it happen,” she said.
“There is no doubt that he is committed to delivering a highly innovative new service that will offer on-demand expert insight into the latest industry developments.”
