Our parent company, Moda Living brought ESG to life at UKREiiF - a new major property conference, with a full programme of content and events in our Next Generation Futures Pavilion.
During the three-day event in our home city of Leeds, 62 speakers and panellists joined Moda and Casa for ESG-focused discussions, talks and panels. From sustainable prop tech and operations to social value and diversity, our Next Generation Futures pavilion was buzzing throughout the week, with more than 4,000 people having attended UKREiiF daily.
Casa by Moda team members from across the Group came together to discuss the emerging single family rental market, and the benefits of delivering our homes from start to finish - a truly vertically integrated offer.
Between sessions the Leeds Rhinos netball team dropped into the pavilion to shoot some hoops with delegates, and Moda’s wellbeing partner Hero ran daily mindfulness and wellbeing sessions to help visitors unwind and stretch out after the long days of listening and learning.
The event culminated in a VIP launch party at Moda, New York Square. Celebrating the opening of the new build-to-rent neighbourhood that week, we welcomed almost 200 guests from the property industry to its stunning rooftop terrace where we enjoyed catering from The Ivy, cocktails from local business Pastel and live music from Leeds Conservatoire students.
Moda Living Director Oscar Brooks said: “UKREiiF was a fantastic event that brought together both public and private sector, and focused on great projects that will breathe life into towns and cities right across the UK.
“Selfishly, being in Leeds it has allowed us to showcase our home city as well as welcome colleagues from across the UK and overseas to Moda’s latest neighbourhood 'New York Square'. The event highlighted and underwrote the demand for product and the huge scope of opportunity in the regions outside of London for largescale regeneration that provides for substantial growth and arbitrage whilst providing residents and occupiers with much needed quality space.”
