18899692773_96d 0ffc 1ed _b

The UK population is projected to grow to over 70 million by 2030, requiring the equivalent of 20 towns the size of Coventry, Belfast or Cardiff to be built every year. Demand will be on planners to deliver places that accommodate this growth. 

The RTPI Annual Planning Convention is your chance to critically examine the best solutions that planners in UK and internationally can provide in tackling the issues of infrastructure, housing, economic growth and the environment now and in the future, at a time when planners are also facing a number of wider challenges in adopting new policy frameworks within finite resources.    

Also featuring a wide range of panel debates lead by key influencers on major issues; energy, smart cities, land value capture and design, and a chance to hear what the planners of tomorrow feel will be the key issues for the future, The RTPI Planning Convention will be the key event for Planners in 2016. 

Benefits of attending:

  • Hear speakers from a wide range of perspectives
  • Discuss urgent and important issues with your peers
  • Look at best practice examples
  • Network at the UK's largest planning conference
  • Identify solutions and the latest planning research
