London is a global powerhouse of commerce – with particular strengths in finance, tech, media and the service industry – yet this status is being threatened by growing pressures on land, market uncertainty following the EU referendum vote, and rising business rates.
We have an accommodation crisis, not just a housing crisis, so how do we ensure development is balanced to create vibrant mixed-use neighbourhoods? What spaces does London need to win the ongoing ‘war for talent’? Are we providing the right types of workplaces in the right places, and are they flexible enough to adapt to future needs?
This year-round programme explores the future for integrating industrial, commercial and affordable workplaces in the evolving city through bringing together key experts to explore the scope for co-location, attracting and retaining talent, and making the best use of land.
