London's global ranking - Launch of PwC Cities of Opportunity Report 2016

Thursday 08 September 5:00PM - 8:00PM

In our 2014 report, London claimed the top spot for the first time as a centre for business, finance and culture. But two years on, will London have managed to retain that position?

As well as reflecting on the findings of the new report, in light of uncertainties surrounding the UK’s vote to leave the EU, our main focus for the evening will be on whether London’s global status is now at risk in the future? Or will London still be open for Business?

We will be joined by a panel of specialists from different sectors and backgrounds to debate London’s future challenges and opportunities. The event is co-hosted by London First and PwC, in London’s Living Room at City Hall. It promises to be a lively and thought provoking evening.

Broadcaster and journalist, Mishal Husain will chair for the evening, and more panellists will be confirmed over the coming weeks.

INVITATION ONLY
