The second annual International Housing Summit, called ISH.SUM in 2010, will run on the 1 and 2 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 in 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 program in 2011 will focus on the shared challenges faced by affordable housing organizations around the world and deliver practical best-practice case studies and challenging discussion. The content of the summit is being developed but will once again include a focus on the vital issues of financing sources/models, community sustainability, energy efficiency and housing the vulnerable.

The summit is organized by Ocean Media Group in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Housing and is supported by many leading associations, including Habitat for Humanity. There is a limited number of places at the conference available for international housing professionals who would otherwise be unable to attend.
