Upon arrival, please report to the Registration Desk on the Level −1 to collect your delegate badge and lanyard.

All delegate badges will be printed by our team, so you will not receive an e-ticket or a ticket to print at home. Badges are fully recyclable and the lanyards provided can be returned to registration staff or the LREF team to be recycled.

Badges cannot be shared between individuals and are for the named individual only. This includes Conference + Tours tickets. The same delegate who attends the Conference Day must attend the Tours Day.

Swapping badges between individuals is strictly forbidden and may result in you being refused entry.

If you are attending the Tours Day, you will receive joining information directly from the tour organisers. 


The full programme for both the Conference and Tours Day is available to view in the Programme section and includes confirmed speakers and information about each session.

Tours Day

If you have registered for the Tours Day, you will receive an email from the team asking you to confirm your preferences for the tours. If you haven’t received an email but think you should have, please contact us at


Kick off the conference day on Wednesday by joining TfL Property Company’s Breakfast Briefing from 08:00–09:00 ahead of the day’s exciting programme of talks and round tables. 

Then, join us later for a NextGen Reception, hosted in association with Gardiner & Theobald. The reception begins at 17:30 and ends at 20:30. This is being held in the Conservatory on Level 3. 

Everyone who holds a Conference Ticket or a Conference + Tours Ticket is welcome to attend the receptions and there is no need to RSVP. 

If you have just the Tours ticket, you will not be permitted entry into the Receptions.
