London on the agenda

Gatwick CEO Stewart Wingate and London deputy mayor for transport Heidi Alexander have been named as key speakers for the 2019 London Infrastructure Summit on 12 September. The theme is “Beyond Brexit: Priorities for the 2020s”.

The event this year is at the new £1bn Tottenham Hotspur football stadium in London – with exclusive and behind-the-scenes tours of the structure as part of the programme.

The summit is seen as an opportunity for attendees to network with hundreds of senior private and public sector leaders in transport, infrastructure, property development and investment.

Other speakers include Southwark Council leader and London Councils chair Peter John, National Infrastructure Commission chief executive Phil Graham and Greater London Authority (GLA) chief digital officer Theo Blackwell.

Sessions will include an overview of the National Infrastructure Assessment – the challenges and opportunities for Transport for London (TfL), with TfL commissioner Mike Brown.

The agenda also includes a discussion on “Digital London” – the business and community benefits of a super-connected capital, and unlocking housing through new infrastructure investment.

Rounding off the event will be a post-summit dinner with Crossrail CEO Mark Wild.
