The Derby Property Summit would like to thank its partners for helping to make this year’s event such a success.

Firstly, our thanks go to headline partner Smith Partnership.

For many years now, Smith Partnership has been a strong supporter of Derby – and activities designed to attract more investment that can help make the city a better place to live, work and play.

With its main base in Derby – and with other offices in the Midlands region – the law firm’s team provides a full range of legal services to business clients, including household name companies and to individual private clients.

At this year’s property summit, Danielle Upton, partner in commercial property at the firm, addressed the audience, bringing the perspective of a local business based in the city centre.

She spoke about how Smith Partnership’s decision to remain in the city centre was reaping dividends – and gave an insight into the importance of place when it comes to attracting new businesses and supporting those already here to thrive.

Our thanks also go to the Derby Property Summit’s associate partner AtkinsRéalis, an organisation which provides design, engineering and project management services for infrastructure and energy projects.

We would also like to express our gratitude to brand partners Compendium Living, Willmott Dixon, ION Developments and VINCI UK Developments.

Compendium Living is delivering the £100 million regeneration of Castleward, to create a new community, featuring hundreds of new homes as well as commercial and public spaces.

Willmott Dixon is a King’s Award-winning contracting and interior fit-out group.

Founded in 1852, the business, which remains family-run, is dedicated to leaving a positive legacy in our communities and environment.

ION Developments and VINCI UK Developments are Derby City Council’s preferred strategic development partner.

They are currently working with the council, businesses and community stakeholders to develop their vision and design for the regeneration of the city centre.

This year was the second time the Derby Property Summit had been hosted by Reach Events, with the catering once again provided by Butler’s Pantry.

Our thanks go to the Pride Park venue for providing the perfect setting for our annual showcase.

We would also like to extend a special thank you to Andy Edmondson, of Purely Digital, for providing transportation services, which helped make the exhibition by University of Derby architectural students during the summit possible.
