The Planning Convention 2019

Take a look at what some of our delegates had to say about the 2019 Planning Convention

The Planning Convention is the RTPI's flagship event, and the largest event in the planning profession's calendar and took place this year on 19 June at County Hall. Each year we bring together over 400 practitioners, politicians, policy makers, developers and community and environmental professionals to address the current issues in the industry. Delegates have the opportunity to hear from key industry influencers, network, discuss, debate and find creative solutions to the most pressing problems facing the profession.

The Planning Convention 2019 took a look at the future for planners and the planning profession. From examining what good design is, reimagining town centres and debating infrastructure, to merging tech with the practical, looking at solutions to the housing crisis, taking inspiration from successful cities around the globe and planning for a diverse society, the Convention looked at what is next and where are we going?
