About Creative London:
The creative sector has been a key driver of the UK’s economy over the past ten years growing at twice the rate of the economy as a whole and generating over £14.5bn in foreign earnings in 2005. London is a world leader in the creative industries and these are considered by the government and other bodies to be the shining light of the British economy in the future. The government vision includes making the UK the world’s creative hub.
To achieve this, designing, developing and supporting creative clusters is crucial.
The aim of the event is to bring thought leaders together with 150 senior professional delegates to shed light on some of the key issues and challenges in delivering this vision.
About Polycentric London
As well as creative clusters, the conference will look at the future of London and present a vision for a polycentric capital; a multi-centred city that provides a new vision for work, location and patterns of commuting in the metropolis.
Today in London, 24 million trips are made every day and a staggering 2 billion bus journeys are made each year. In the current London plan, population is forecast to increase to 9.1m by 2031, with employment increasing from 4.7m to 5.3m jobs - a predicted 475,000 new jobs in business and financial services will be created.
Where will these people work and how and when will they travel? We have brought together an expert panel to present the trends.
