"Future Fundamentals: sustainability, trust, digitalisation".
The fundamental strengths that underpin London as the greatest city to live, work, visit and learn are driven by our rich culture, diverse population and dynamic economy. The fundamental principles behind good real estate development have endured since the Great Estates set out the first urban neighbourhoods with a mix of uses, high quality design and construction, shared public spaces and amenities and a long-term approach to their management. But climate change, mass urbanisation, an ageing population and technology are driving change at an unprecedented rate.
This requires policy makers, businesses and the real estate industry to adapt and embrace a new set of fundamental priorities that should be put at the centre of every decision that they make. These future fundamentals are the focus for LREF 2020 — and we will be bringing these to life through the themes that will run across our conference, curated exhibition content and events.
