An industry and interest organisation
There are member companies of varying size throughout Sweden. They operate in their own local markets and their conditions differ quite significantly. However, there are more similarities than differences and there is a great feeling of solidarity between the companies.
As an industry and interest organisation we want to provide concrete benefits for our member companies. As an industry organisation we provide daily support and service, for instance in the form of relevant information on our website and in the form of reports, guidelines and handbooks. We offer training adapted to the sector, arrange conferences focused on the challenges faced by the sector and also set up networks and arrange meetings for the exchange of experience.
Our employees and experts focus on the daily challenges of our member companies concerning property development, economic and financial issues, the supply of skills, housing issues and law and also communication and business development. Every year our activities bring together over 6,000 people. This makes us one of the most important meeting places for the sector.
As an interest organisation our long-term ambition is to provide good operational conditions for our member companies and the positive development of rental property. Our work concerns housing policy, but we are not affiliated to any political party. We seek to create alliances and cooperate where this benefits our members.
We perform around half of our activities elsewhere in Sweden, often in collaboration with one or more of our member companies. For example, this may relate to company-based training in tenancy law, a network meeting for communicators or a regional conference for elected representatives.
We cooperate with all of the important housing organisations in Sweden, for example, the Swedish Union of Tenants and the Swedish Property Federation. We work together to create a secure rental market and for the positive development of rental housing. However, development in our sector is not restricted to the borders of Sweden. Therefore we are working both to promote the exchange of experience and to promote and protect our interests in respect of EU regulations through the Nordic housing organisation (NBO Housing Nordic) and Housing Europe.
