Last chance to book for WOW London 2020

On 26 February 2020, over 200 senior representatives from businesses and local authorities in West London and the Thames Valley will gather at the University of West London in Ealing for the next WOW London conference.

West London and the Thames Valley are a hotspot for some of the largest transport projects in the country. Key projects that include the Elizabeth Line, HS2, and Old Oak and Park Royal, opening a whole new community in west London – operate alongside the decision from Parliament to back Heathrow’s expansion. All this will pull together west London and the Thames Valley on a mass scale.

These major projects formed the backdrop of last year’s event, which examined how they will bring unprecedented growth to the region. This year’s event will build on this, exploring topics that include how companies can meet increasingly difficult skills challenges, how local authorities with different priorities and different political backgrounds can work together to deliver growth in the region and what can be done to increase the delivery of much needed homes.

Speakers at the event will include Emma Gilthorpe, executive director for expansion at Heathrow Airport, professor Anthony Woodman, deputy vice chancellor at University of West London and Mike Wooliscroft, managing director at Countryside Properties. There will also be a team from Ealing Council speaking including Tony Clements, executive director of place, Lucy Taylor, director of regeneration and planning, Cllr Peter Mason, cabinet member for housing, and Julian Bell, leader of the council. They will be discussing the efforts the council is making to delivery more affordable homes in the borough.

Furthermore, there is a unique opportunity to test your piloting skills in the university’s Flight Simulator Experience.
