HQN and DTL Creative team-up to launch Innovation and Technology Network

DTL Creative has become the latest HQN partner and will facilitate best-practice sharing, deliver professional training content and provide a forum for housing professionals to discuss innovation and technology.

UK-based housing technology consultancy DTL Creative and the Housing Quality Network (HQN) have announced that they’ll partner to establish an ‘Innovation and Technology Network’, providing a platform for peer-to-peer learning and to provide professional training and expert guidance to members from across the UK social housing sector.

The network will cater to a wide audience from within the sector and will include regular best-practice events, networking forums, a responsive enquiries service and a comprehensive innovation training programme.

To introduce the network, HQN and DTL Creative will be hosting an introduction event in February ‘21, with the full programme of activity to follow from March.

Commenting on the partnership Dave Loudon, Founder and Managing Director of DTL Creative, said: “This partnership just made complete sense, right from very early-stage discussions with HQN! We are both convinced and excited by the prospect of combining their well-established international best practice network with our ability to deliver thought-provoking and actionable insight for those interested in innovation and technology in housing.

“We can’t wait to see this partnership grow, and for both the DTL Creative and HQN customer communities to benefit as a result.”

HQN’s Head of Business Development, Networks and Events, Jon Land added: “We are delighted to be teaming up with DTL on the new Innovation and Technology Network. HQN is committed to helping the sector use technology to better support residents and we think the new network will play a key role in building organisations’ knowledge and understanding of all things digital.”
