The event is sponsored by law firm CMS, and will provide an in-depth look at the recently published report ‘Connected Future’, answering questions many property professionals have about the real impact of these technologies, such as:

  • what the cities of tomorrow will really look like
  • how to retrofit vehicle charging points in an already busy city
  • how autonomous vehicles will impact the availability of land
  • where established business parks can find space for large energy storage facilities
  • how to futureproof ageing property portfolios so they don’t devalue

Discussion will showcase examples of international best practice, alongside where smart infrastructure is being installed in the North West.

The conference will take place on Thursday 28 March at the Science & Industry Museum in Manchester, running from 8am until midday with further networking over lunch.

Tickets are £60+VAT and include all refreshments.
