Public Statement

Public Practice sign up for UKREiiF 2024

Public Practice have confirmed their involvement with The UK’s Real Estate Investment & Infrastructure Forum (UKREiiF). The UKREiiF event is in partnership with Pagabo, and is set to take place between 21-23 May 2024, in Leeds.


Public Practice was founded as a social enterprise in October 2017 with a mission to build the public sector’s capacity to improve the quality, equality and sustainability of places. They work to help build the capability of public sector placemaking skills and increase the knowledge of good practice across officers and the wider sector.

Public Practice, in collaboration with EG, has secured a session on Wednesday 22nd May at the annual event, where over 10,000 investors, developers, end-users and local authorities are expected to attend.

Speaking of their involvement, Pooja Agrawal, CEO, said:

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to host an insightful session about failing forward at UKREiiF 2024. All too often, the sector celebrates its successes but forgets to learn from what hasn’t gone right. We will provide a safe space to share these on a public platform and create an opportunity to discuss the learnings, helping to build cross-sector empathy and redefine what leadership can look like.”

Keith Griffiths, CEO and Founder of UKREiiF, said: “We’re thrilled to have Public Practice on board for the third annual UKREiiF event.

“We look forward to them bringing a different perspective to the event and building understanding between the public and private sectors.”

Samantha McClary, Editor of EG, said:
"EG is committed to enabling powerful conversations and creating valuable connections that enable the built environment to deliver more for the economy, planet and people and looks forward to a full schedule of events at UKREIIF 2024."

Led by the UK’s leading property events company Built Environment Networking and supported by some of the biggest UK property and infrastructure companies, the third annual UKREiiF event will be held in Leeds on 21-23 May 2024. The forum will attract inward investment, generate economic growth, and drive a more sustainable and inclusive culture within the property and construction industries.
