The Planner Live – programme announced

We’re delighted to launch our tickets and programme for The Planner Live 2020. If you only attend one event in 2020 make sure it’s this one!


29 - 30 June 2020, etc.venues County Hall, London

The Planner Live (formerly the Planning Convention) is our revamped national conference for planners across the UK. We're bringing together the strengths of both the RTPI and The Planner magazine to offer delegates two full days of conference sessions, and a gala dinner, to maximise your networking opportunities.

From ministers to high-profile international speakers and experts from other sectors, our 2020 programme will take a critical and comprehensive look at the hot topics in planning and also your own wellbeing, through focus sessions, live interviews and extensive opportunities for delegates to contribute to discussions and interact with presenters.
