The Big Debate - Change perspective: how to adapt the property world to a fast moving international environment? (Thursday, 13 March, 10am-11:30am)

Masterminds Europe: Re-inventing Europe (Wednesday, March 12, 10am-11:30am)
In light of the rise of new economic powerhouses in recent years, is Europe still an influential market internationally? Are Europe's large cities and their infrastructure, which follow different development paths, still attractive to international investors?

Futrastructure: rebooting urban infrastructure (Wednesday, March 12, 2:30pm- 3:00pm)

The speakers include:

  • Scott Burnham, Director, Scott Burnham Studio
  • Prof. John Macomber, Professor, Harvard Business School
