  • How better quality can improve the value and profitability of new development
  • New approaches to planning and development
  • Effective political leadership and influence
  • New funding sources that can unlock proposed development projects
  • New delivery mechanisms from a multi-disciplinary design and development perspective .

The conference celebrates the innovative work being undertaken by practices and local authorities in the South West and in Bristol during its time as European Green Capital 2015. This not-for-profit conference offers unrivalled opportunities for politicians and professionals from all backgrounds to meet in a friendly and inspiring environment.
