The built environment is changing - are you ready to harness its potential?

Join us at the World Built Environment Forum Summit
The built environment is changing - are you ready to harness its potential?
EUROPE Technology and disruptive business models are shaping our world as never before, with huge and perhaps unpredictable geopolitical and social consequences. Successful cities will respond to these forces through resilience and economic competitiveness.

The built environment professions can play a crucial role in shaping the cities that best serve their inhabitants’ needs.
The World Built Environment Forum aims to align all stakeholders in the sector behind commercially viable actions that address issues of global significance for urban populations. This year, members of the Forum are convening for the first time ever in Europe for Summit London 23-24 April 2018. Previous Summits took place in Washington DC and Shanghai.

Summit London will explore the opportunities and challenges presented by the disruptive impact of the Fourth Industrial Revolution under the theme of “Urbanisation, Innovation and Civilisation”.

Tesla’s co-founder and Chief Technical Officer, JB Straubel will open the Summit. He will share his vision of how new technology will transform our cities and economies. Key influencers from around the globe will lead interactive sessions exploring artificial intelligence, blockchain and automated technology. They will also address macro issues, such as urbanisation, financial stability and investment risk.
All attendees will:
• Gain strategic perspectives, market insight and knowledge of best practice from respected international practitioners
• Have opportunities to network with senior figures from globally-leading property, land and infrastructure companies
Individual Summit sessions include:
• The Networked World: Digital Innovation, Inclusive Infrastructure and Structural Economic Transformation
