The Business of Cities

As cities develop, they are more likely to adopt business practices: specialization, competitive positioning, talent attraction, investment & asset management strategies, brands, and marketing. For this reason, in this era of urbanisation, businesses need to learn how to develop partnerships with cities to serve growing markets, access digital connections, attract talent and suppliers, generate new products and services, innovate with new populations & demographics, and share the risks of costs of hosting the world.

  • Get to know The Business of Cities
  • Learn how to develop partnerships with the cities in the future
  • Tailor your products for new populations and demographics

The Decarbonisation of Cities and Zero Carbon Cities

70 per cent of all carbon is emitted in cities. So, if we can decarbonize the city, we can save the world. Rethinking urban mobility, real estate, infrastructure, and waste are key to reach our goal of zero emissions. What cities are at the forefront of carbon reduction and what are their innovations? What roles do finance, legislation, business and leadership play?

  • How to change the way you think about urban mobility, infrastructure, waste and real estate
  • Find out what roles do governments, financial institutions and businesses play in reducing emissions
  • The key decarbonisation strategies from leading Zero Carbon Cities
Keynote by speaker Greg Clark

The Future of Cities

The next 50 years are crucial to whether we will get good or bad urbanisation before the century comes to an end. But what about the individual cities, how do we know their future? Will London reinvent itself, can Shanghai emerge as the next big global city, where is Singapore going next, and what is New York’s future?

  • The significance of the next 50 years for urbanisation
  • What does the future hold for metropolises like London, Shanghai or New York
  • When and how to invest in future cities
