The London Conference

The London Conference is Centre for London's flagship event. It is the one time in the year when leaders from across London come together to discuss the critical challenges facing the capital.

The London Conference is an event for senior business, third-sector and local government leaders. It is carefully and imaginatively curated. Each year the conference programme is developed to address the most pressing issues facing London, including keynote speeches, panel discussions, interviews and quick-fire presentations.

London Conference 2022

In previous years we’ve explored London in the pandemic, what Londoners want from their Mayor, how London can become an inclusive, working capital and London’s place in the world after the EU referendum.

Exciting and influential speakers

The conference has a reputation for attracting influential speakers and high-level attendees. Previous speakers have included the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan; former Mayors of London Boris Johnson and Ken Livingstone; Deputy Mayor of New York Alicia Glen, Lord Peter Mandelson, former UK Foreign Secretary David Miliband; and Baroness Martha Lane-Fox and Newsnight Lead Presenter Emily Maitlis.

Sponsorship opportunities

The London Conference is supported by a coalition of business, public and third sector partners. We work hard to bring funders from different backgrounds together.

In recent years, partners have included the City of London Corporation, L&Q, the London Borough of Camden, London Councils, JLL, J.P. Morgan, Trust for London and Uber.
