Events

“I really enjoy attending Future of London events. I’m guaranteed to learn something new and invaluable. I will also meet passionate, interesting people at the peak of their careers. I often come away having made a new friend or potential collaborator. I recommend their events to colleagues and would encourage anyone working in the built environment to consider getting involved with the Future of London.”
Jacqueline Bleicher, Director, Global Urban Design
