London Conference 2012 - a conversation on jobs, growth and urban renewal after the Olympics
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?
Tuesday 27 November, 08:30 - 17:30
Southbank Centre, London
Join London's leaders and policy professionals at this day-long event of keynote speeches, breakout discussions and presentations.
We will be debating the strengths and weaknesses of London's economy and asking which sectors have the greatest potential to grow and create jobs. How do we make sure future growth is inclusive and London becomes a better place to live for all its citizens? What does successful urban renewal look like and how do we create vibrant communities and desirable places in the Olympic area and wider east London?
All this will be set in context alongside the latest global research and intelligence on cities and London's competitiveness across the world, from our partners McKinsey & Company.
