The London Conference

This year’s London Conference comes six months before London elects a new Mayor. The last three elections have all been contested by an incumbent – the last election pitted a former Mayor against an incumbent Mayor. But this time is different. May 2016 will represent a fresh start. We will be asking the Labour and Conservative Mayoral candidates what their priorities are for London.

The conference will explore the challenges facing London and what a new Mayor can do to tackle these. As in previous years, the Conference will bring together London leaders and experts from across the capital for a lively day of lectures, quick-fire presentations, interviews, panel discussions and debates.
