Championing fresh, original thinking that has the potential to transform London – and cities around the world – for the better, the London ideas magazine and event series will explore the ingredients needed to keep central London thriving as a sociable city centre.

Entrepreneurs, innovators and policymakers will discuss central London’s role as a cultural, retail and social hub and the capital's vital contribution to the UK’s consumer and visitor economy. Questions posed will include:

  • What are the challenges that central London faces, and how can they be overcome?
  • What does the future hold for central London’s retail districts? What can shopping districts learn from out of town shopping centres?
  • How can central London cope with the demands placed on it, including footfall, overcrowding and congestion?
