London Conference 2012
- 27th November 2012, 08:30AM
- Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, London SE1 8XX
2012 has been a phenomenal year for London. London has re-established itself as one of the great global cities in the eyes of the world. But how do we turn the 2012 buzz into long term momentum?
London’s economy has stood up relatively well during the economic crisis, but the wider British economy is flat-lining and the Eurozone is in crisis. Economic power is shifting East and South, and London will have to adapt. The banking sector on which London has been so dependent, faces an uncertain future.
The Conference will consider major issues such as quality of life, transport infrastructure, the housing shortage and migration pressures, and London's future as a place for business and talent.
The programme includes a debate on financial services curated by the Demos Finance Unit, a keynote on innovation and cities by Richard Florida, author of The Rise of the Creative Class, and an 'in conversation' with Lord Heseltine on the history of large-scale regeneration projects in London.
