London Infrastructure Summit

Wednesday 12 September 8:00AM - 6:00PM

London First is pleased to present the fifth London Infrastructure Summit, taking place in Westminster at the QEII Centre, on Wednesday 12 September 2018.

The London Infrastructure Summit has rapidly become a key date in the infrastructure calendar, offering leading industry and public sector figures the chance to explore the opportunities and challenges facing infrastructure planning, funding and delivery in the capital.

Plans are underway for all aspects of the 2018 summit. Our focus this year is on London’s future infrastructure pipeline. With major projects like Crossrail and Thameslink coming to conclusion, and others like Tideway now into construction, what are London’s infrastructure priorities post 2020? And what action is required now from the government, Mayor and boroughs to ensure a sustainable long-term infrastructure pipeline for the capital?
