Building Better Cities
LEAF (Leading European Architecture Forum) International will be coming to the landmark capital of architecture in 2016. The Forum will take place in London from 13th -14th October 2016. Now in its 16th year we will be bringing together senior decision makers from leading international architectural practices, contractors, developers, engineers and supplier partners to learn about the latest industry developments and to network with the entire industry supply chain.
LEAF Mission Statement
The only high level, one to one business development platform for leading specifiers and suppliers to discuss future building projects.
The event will include a comprehensive programme of high level interactive presentations on future building project wins that will be premiered at LEAF International making our forum the only launch pad for recently won projects. Previous LEAF events have seen the official presentation of the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games, Gensler’s Shanghai Tower and BDP’s Kuwait Cultural Centre.
LEAF International will focus on specifying for future projects via our unique customized private one to one meetings platform designed specifically to facilitate business development opportunities both for supplier partners and high level specifiers from the international design and build community, complemented with numerous networking activities.
We are also holding a separate awards ceremony on the evening of Friday October 14th. Join us at the prestigious LEAF Awards for an evening gala dinner honouring the most recent global architectural projects.
