London Real Estate Forum Investment Summit



New London Architecture (NLA) are inviting Heart of London members to their first ever LREF Investment Summit – an industry-critical briefing examining the state of the market and opportunities to drive growth in London, and across the UK.

In daily live webinars throughout the week, leading economists will discuss the year ahead, and government, city and regional leaders will share their latest plans to drive recovery and create a sustainable future.

Topics include Covid-19, Brexit and the climate change agenda. What are the global, regional, and local conditions we should be aware of? How can we enable the investment that we need to drive economic recovery? What will be the key areas for opportunity in 2021?
