In 2014, Place West London included series of events focussed on economic development & regeneration in West London. The aim is to help West London shape its future, and ensure continued economic growth and prosperity.
Place West London events centre on the concept of ‘place’- a location which provides home, community, employment and all aspects of a satisfying and rewarding life. The physical environment matters a lot to a place, but it is not the only component – social and infrastructural aspects all add layers to places.
In 2014, we took Place West London ‘on location’. We used three locations; Heathrow, Hurlingham Club and Brunel University London. These events proved very successful and in 2015 we plan to continue with our ‘on location’ events in key locations in the region, either half or full day events, culminating in a dinner at The Hurlingham Club on the 20th May 2015.
Place West London has speakers from the worlds of politics, business and regeneration. As well as a programme of plenaries and panel sessions focussed on issues of economy and regeneration, there are practical workshops and round tables all focussed on key issues around West London’s people, places, infrastructure and economy.
With support and involvement from West London Business, the West London Partnership, and all six Local Authorities, as well as from the private sector and the Greater London Assembly, Place West London is West London’s Economic Development Summit.
Place West London brings together representatives from local, regional and central government with key stakeholders from locally based businesses (including the SME sector), the construction, property and investment sectors. They along
with senior representatives from West London business communities chart a strategic course for development and regeneration in the west of London. A mix of key supporters, exhibitors and delegates discuss and agree strategic plans for the future development and growth of the region. Place West London is the policy shaping event for the west of London.
