Events & Discussions: Forthcoming events

Cityforum events are driven by the growing importance of developing effective public policy quickly and with the contribution of the right mix of experts and industry stakeholders.

We work closely with policy makers and senior public sector officials to understand their needs and goals and identify and engage senior private sector representatives, academics and overseas experts who can best contribute to policy discussions.

Held under the Chatham House Rule, the events provide a safe, secure and neutral environment in which policy makers, the private sector and academia can freely discuss, debate, propose and test solutions to contemporary public policy problems.

Individuals and private sector organisations have the opportunity to participate in our events as delegates, sponsors, or strategic partners.  For more information on Sponsorship click here.

Delegate participation

Delegate places are available for purchase at our public events.  Cityforum events give corporate companies and individuals the opportunity to take part and participate in the discussions that shape future policies – be there from the beginning, get the inside track, and make important contacts for your business.  We offer special SME and Public Sector rates.

Guest participation

The impressive calibre of the people who participate in our discussions play a significant role in the success of Cityforum events.  Not only do we commission an exceptionally high standard of contributors to speak at and lead the discussions, but we also ensure that our list of attendees are equally as discerning and influential.  For each event we have a limited number of Guest Invitations, which can be offered to people with specialised experience within the subject matter.  If you would like to be considered for a Guest Invitation to any of our forthcoming events, please e-mail info@cityforum.co.uk.
