This has been an ‘Olympotastic’ year for London. But serious economic, social and infrastructural challenges remain. How shall we build on the success of the Olympics to ensure London remains a world-class player on a global stage? How will the urban development of East London ensure jobs and desirable places for London’s people?

Be at the forefront of policy ideas and solutions for London. Attend a day of thoughtful keynote speeches, breakout discussions and presentations to examine the capital’s challenges.

The context will be set by the latest global research and intelligence on cities from McKinsey & Company.

Highlights include special guest Richard Florida, leading public intellectual and author of the global bestseller ‘The Rise of the Creative Class’. London First’s Director of Policy and Stragey, John Dickie, will be among the policy experts and ministers leading discussions.
