UK: MIPIM UK Calling: 'Tomorrow's Cities, Today's Challenges'.
Last Updated: 22 July 2014

Wedlake Bell have submitted a proposal for a panel discussion to MIPIM UK Calling. Our topic is 'Tomorrow's Cities, Today's Challenges'. With the prediction that more than 60 % of the world's population will live in cities by 2030, significant challenges face the cities in the UK.

If successful, we will consider what this means for the real estate industry and explore the issues with our panel of leading industry speakers: Liz Peace, outgoing Chief Executive of the BPF, Tim Allen of Peter Brett Associates, Helen Garthwaite, Construction and Sustainable Development Partner at Wedlake Bell and BCO Board Member and Suzanne Gill, Commercial Property Partner at Wedlake Bell and commercial property columnist for the Law Society Gazette.

Topics covered will include:

  • Connectivity within and between hub cities, the home and the workplace
  • Smart cities and smarter buildings – what will the internet of things mean for the property industry?
  • Blurring home and work boundaries – the impact of modern lifestyles on infrastructure and building design, construction and operation
  • Property and the environment – will sustainability become truly important for real estate?

We believe this discussion is of key significance and interest for all those in the real estate industry.
Please vote for us and encourage your colleagues to vote for us too.

Wedlake Bell look forward to seeing you at MIPIM UK!
