London First Future Forum

Tuesday 17 October 8:00AM - 10:00AM

Technology is changing London. For business it’s challenging the business models of established sectors in ways which are disruptive, but also offer new opportunities. For London’s government it’s increasingly a tool for improving efficiency and better managing growth challenges (e.g. data analytics, mobile and embedded devices).

It is against this landscape that London First is establishing a mechanism to ensure its business plan and priorities for London continue to be fit for purpose as the economy evolves.
