Futures Fair 10


Futures Fair 10 Event

Wednesday 02 June 2010

Building Future’s flagship event for the year, in association with New London Architecture.

2nd June 2010 – The Building Centre – London

Given the current economic condition, the architecture profession is under pressure to develop its modes of practice, its business models and its collaborative links. Over the past 12 months there has been increasing speculation and suggestion as to how the profession might start to morph into new guises, and what skills architects might need to make these changes. Futures Fair presents a unique opportunity to keep on top of emerging trends, network with those at the forefront of those trends and essentially ‘future-proof’ your business.

Let’s not just adapt to survive, but adapt to thrive.

Futures Fair 10 will gather together built environment professionals with people leading innovation in other fields in a one day event that will plant the seeds for radical new ways of working and fresh collaborations. The fast-paced day will include presentations by challenging speakers representing 5 key themes: technological advancement and its potential impact on the built environment; innovative modes of business and entrepreneurship; landscape resilience; learning from design in different sectors and; emergent forms of community engagement and their place in development. Futures Fair 10 will equip you with the skills and knowledge required to plan out the future of your business and respond to fresh challenges.

Attendees will play an active role in the day- with frequent opportunities for discussion and interaction over 5 distinct seminar sessions, keynote contributions and a unique ‘speed date’ networking event. Futures Fair is CPD accredited.

Futures Fair 10 is supported by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) through the Foresight Program, and Crystal CG
