Infrastructure Summit imminent

The biggest gathering of experts in their field are preparing for the 2019 London Infrastructure Summit, taking place in 10 days’ time on 12 September at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Delegates can expect insights on how the government and upcoming mayoral election could impact London’s priorities for the 2020s while there will be networking with hundreds of senior private and public sector leaders.

The event will also hear the inside track on key projects from London’s infrastructure pipeline, from TfL and Network Rail to London’s utilities, digital connectivity and airports. Crossrail chief executive Mark Wild will join the post-summit dinner.

As previewed earlier (BTN 17 June), Gatwick CEO Stewart Wingate and London deputy mayor for transport Heidi Alexander are also among key speakers for the event.

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

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.

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.
