Conference overview

December 6 brings the major UK economic development and regeneration event of the year – the Institute of Economic Development’s 2018 Annual Conference.

This 1-day central London event will bring together some 200 sector leaders and senior professionals to explore ‘Mind the Gap – Productivity, Place and People’: With output, growth and inclusion varying enormously across the UK, and the gap rising further, it has never been more important to address these inequalities – and to plot a more coherent, inclusive strategy for economic development.

Prominent expert speakers – among them Will Hutton, Dr Rannia Leontaridi and Tom Walker – will address key topics under this theme, including:

The conference will feature both stimulating plenary addresses and practical break-out sessions.

The streamed break-out programme will include interactive roundtable discussions with peers – a highly popular element of last year’s conference.
