Smart - Sustainable - Social BABC Annual Conference 2016 May 11th - 12th, 2016 London

This year's Annual Transatlantic Business Conference, bringing together members of the BABC's 20 plus chapters throughout the US and the UK, seeks to address what challenges Cities and business face in our changing world.

Cities can bring prosperity and opportunity and be exciting places to live. All of this attracts talent which in turn generates significant economic output. However, urbanization also brings great challenges, from increasing pressure on infrastructure and services, to managing risk. Our 2016 conference will feature a blend of keynote addresses from senior Government figures to significant business leaders.

Held at the stunning News UK venue over looking the Thames, we would love you to join us to discover cutting edge solutions for smarter and more agile Cities, meet businesses re-shaping business centres of the future and interact with influential leaders in business and government.
