On the 20th November, prominent estates and facilities leaders from the UK’s national, regional and local emergency services will come together at the Blue Light Estates Development Conference – the sector’s largest conference of the year.

More than 25 speakers will discuss and present at the event including:
- Office of Police & Crime Commissioner
- Office of Government Property
- One Public Estate
- National Police Estates Group
- Fire & Rescue Services; Staffordshire, Cheshire, Nottinghamshire, Avon & Somerset
