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

Future of London events include strategic roundtables and delivery-focused workshops, seminars, field trips plus our summer conference – as well as plenty of networking time.
