Some of the biggest developers in Croydon are set to be the keynote speakers for Develop Croydon at this year’s MIPIM event.
The annual trade fair in Cannes starts on March 7 and will see Croydon’s redevelopment plans under the international spotlight.
Speaking on behalf of the plans will be Lawrence Hutchings, UK retail managing director for Hammerson plc, and Charles Walford, property manager for Stanhope plc as well as Jon Rouse, chief executive of the London Borough of Croydon.
The session will be chaired by Peter Murray, chairman of the NLA – the centre for London’s built environment which acts as a focus for the debate and discussion if issues facing architecture, planning, development and construction in the capital.
Mr Rouse said: “Croydon is ready and open for business. Our number one objective is to strive to be an enterprising borough – a place where you can do business and where you will not find significant obstacles to fulfilling your ambitions.”
Develop Croydon is a private-sector led body promoting development and economic renewal in Croydon.
