Our approach

Right people in the room

We bring together investment and development communities with leaders from across the public sector, government, sector professions, corporates and academia.

Thought-leading and inspiring

We seek the most senior and diverse speakers, with industry disruptors and relevant outside voices contributing to the conversation and provoking fresh ideas.

Solution focused intelligence

We provide year-round intelligence through insight reports, virtual events, think tanks and a summer networking reception.

Curated exhibition

The Barbican foyers will host an exhibition showcasing development activity across London and UK cities, with models, maps and images.



Climate change, mass urbanisation, an ageing population and digitalisation are driving change at an unprecedented rate. The 2020 pandemic has further accelerated change in many areas, as we strive for recovery and resilience. Cities are facing major challenges, both economic and social, but as we look to the future the crisis also offers an exciting chance to reboot.

We have identified a set of fundamental priorities for policy makers, businesses and the real estate industry to put at the heart of every decision being made. These Future Fundamental themes inform our year-round programme and create a platform for discussion and debate. Our monthly insights explore a different theme each month.
