Time to plan | Manchester 2022



This year, discussions will focus on the challenges we all face in this new era of openness, agility and flexibility, placing this in the context of ever increasing environmental challenges. 

We will hear from key stakeholders in both development and occupation of buildings, and futurists who will explore the live and ongoing mass experiment we are all engaged in regarding the future of work. Read more here.


Our 2022 tours provide an opportunity to showcase the latest in office design and occupation, with focus on regeneration, sustainability, public realm and refurbishment.

There are 17 options to choose between, from Mayfield, one of the leading regeneration schemes in the UK, to Manchester’s Grade I Listed Town Hall, and an exclusive tour inside the dock10 television studios. View the full list.


This year’s cycle challenge is very accessible to a wide range of riders. The ride is fully supported, with the emphasis being on completing the challenge together, whilst networking and socialising with like-minded people from the industry.

The 3 day ride will leave Sheppard Robson’s Office in Angel on Sunday 12 June and head out through the Chilterns and into Northamptonshire, on through the West Midlands to Cannock Chase AONB, then to Stafford, before making the final stage of the ride to the conference in Manchester. Further details here.


Join us on Tuesday 14 June at The Mere, a wonderful Championship Course set in the Cheshire countryside. 

The competition will be played for best individual Stableford, full handicap for the BCO Cup, best team, and a competition for both the ladies (17th & 3rd) and gents (7th & 14th) for Nearest the Pin and Longest Drive. Golfers can also compete in the Straightest Drive and Beat the Pro contests.

The day will conclude with a BBQ lunch followed by prize presentations. View the itinerary.


Every year the BCO raises money for charity. This is integral to taking part in the cycling challenge, but we also hope that every delegate will take two minutes to donate to one of our two mental health charities this year, either Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) or Shout 85258.
