International Housing Summit, Rotterdam
The second annual International Housing Summit (called ISH.SUM in 2010), ran on the 1st and 2nd November 2011 at the De Doelen centre in Rotterdam.

A resounding success in its first year, the Summit saw nearly 300 delegates from 22 countries converge on The Netherlands for a packed schedule of excellent conference content delivered by more than 50 speakers, valuable relationship-building during extensive networking events and study tours to ground-breaking projects around the country.

The conference programme in 2011 will focus on the shared challenges faced by affordable housing organisations around the world and deliver practical best-practice case studies and challenging discussion.

The Summit focussed on the vital issues of financing sources/models, community sustainability, energy efficiency and housing the vulnerable. A copy of the programme that ran is available to download at

The Summit was organised by Ocean Media Group in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Housing and is supported by many leading associations, including the BSHF.
