BPF Futures

BPF Futures is a community for professionals across all areas of UK real estate with fewer than 10 years’ experience.

A network for property’s rising stars and future leaders

BPF Futures is a community that is shaped and managed by junior professionals, for anyone who has worked in the property industry for fewer than 10 years 

The future of property will be defined by our sector’s ability to attract and nurture a more diverse pool of talent from all parts of society. BPF Futures is a community designed to develop tomorrow’s property industry leaders, and to make sure that their voices are heard on the issues that will affect their future and the health of the UK’s diverse communities.

We shape our industry

  • The first BPF Futures Challenge was a ground-breaking initiative in partnership with the Office of Government Property that put property’s future leaders at the heart of solving one of the biggest challenges facing our towns and cities: how to breathe new life into our high streets and town centres.

  • Our High Street Adaptation Working Group gives junior professionals a seat at the table on developing the policies that will help tackle the issues faced by our town centres.

  • We host regular workshops to help Futuresmembers learn about new policy proposals and contribute to the industry’s response to them.

We have opportunities to network and learn

  • The MyBPF Futures webinar series brings together junior professionals and industry leaders to share insights about our sector and offer professional development opportunities. Meanwhile, social events, like our ‘Not Going to MIPIM’ sessions, offer a more informal way to meet others from across the industry.

  • Our monthly newsletter provides a snapshot of recent policy developments as well as interviews with senior industry figures and rising stars. While our exclusive FuturesForum gives a platform to share ideas with fellow members and contribute to the BPF’s wider work.

  • Working with our partners, we’re able to offer wider experiences and new ways of collaborating with others.  

  • We’re regularly able to offer parliamentary tours that provide a unique insight into the legislative processes and the work of both the House of Commons and the House of Lords.

We celebrate innovation and success

The work and ambition of the industry’s best and brightest future leaders is recognised through the BPF Futures Tomorrow’s Leaders Awards.
