Transformational Change Creating a New and Sustainable City

Event : 28 September 2017

‘Transformational Change Creating a New and Sustainable City’ is a half-day seminar to explore how sustainability is going to transform Exeter by looking deeper into the legal, property and fund challenges around transformational change and how it all fits together.

The challenge and opportunity is how the professional community of Exeter can take on and help shape this process. The message to get over is that it is happening come what may and Exeter businesses must embrace it or lose out.

The seminar will take place at the Mercure Southgate Hotel, Southernhay East, on Thursday 28 September 2017.
