Holiday Inn Conference Centre

The ACES flagship event of the year will return to a live event in 2022 with the usual line up of excellent speakers and great networking opportunities for ACES members and others working in or for the public sector at exceptional value for money.


Theme: 2050: Path to Sustainable Communities


Venue: Holiday Inn, Sutton

Dates: Thursday 15th September and Friday 16th September 2022.







In September ACES will gather in Sutton at the Holiday Inn to hear how to navigate the Path to Sustainable Communities. We are all adapting to an evolving landscape in a post pandemic, but recession threatened environment. One constant theme is demanding the attention of all of us – sustainability. Specifically, ensuring what we do supports sustainable communities.

At this years’ conference, hosted by our Sutton colleagues, Ronan Leyden from Bioregional will explain what we mean by a sustainable community and then other speakers will examine the elements that contribute to that definition. You will have the chance to hear from decision makers and opinion formers such as Will Norman, London’s first Walking and Cycling Commissioner, and Helen Stubbs, our next president, who will talk about levelling up in the north east and what’s happening in Darlington. We will hear from the Government about how they are moving departments to our regions and outer London plus our industry colleagues will showcase their work and lead discussions on themes such as the 15-minute neighbourhood and biodiversity as well as updates on valuation, the law and trends in the market place.

The 2022 conference is open to everyone who works within and on behalf of the public sector. It will run across the 15 and 16 September at the Holiday Inn, Sutton and there will be many opportunities for open discussion, networking and accruing CPD on a wide range of topics, from regeneration, housing development, to the future of the profession.
