Destination Next – Ideas for a sustainable, safe and socially inclusive future
Destination Next is the first half day conference on sustainability organised by Urban Partners.
Join us on Friday 16 November to discuss the social and environmental sustainability of the Euston, King’s Cross and St Pancras area. The focus will be on the lessons that can be learnt for its future development and how these can be applied to other urban areas.
Destination Next will host up to 300 business leaders from the local area and will include keynote speakers, panels discussions and a networking lunch.
The cost to attend the conference and the networking lunch is:
£50 + VAT General Admission
£40 + VAT Urban Partners Members
The conference will focus on both the social and environmental sustainability of the Euston, King’s Cross and St Pancras area, as well as on the importance of strong engagement amongst local businesses.
King’s Cross and the surrounding area has changed enormously in the past 20 years, and with future developments planned across the wider area, the next 20 years are set to be just as transformative.
This is why now is the perfect time to host this event, ensuring that the lessons from the redevelopment of St Pancras and King’s Cross help ensure Euston successfully delivers a transformation that is beneficial for all those that live, work and play in the Euston, King’s Cross and St Pancras area.
The conference is our hero project for 2018 and will help shape our work and activities in 2019. We will identify the priorities for the area in order to maintain the thriving neighbourhood we all know today and where we should be focusing our efforts.
