Private roundtable: Trading Tips – Making Money from Nothing

We will be partnering with the Property Industry Alliance on an event to discuss investment opportunities in the West of England

Event starts at 11am on 4 September 2018 at Bristol - contact for details

Centre for Cities and Property Industry Alliance are delighted to be partnering on this private roundtable event with special guest speaker Tim Bowles Metro Mayor of the West of England, to discuss the ways the combined authority can work with private sector partners to support investment, and make use of local assets.

The Property Industry Alliance (PIA) was formed in May 2006 with a remit to facilitate closer working between the leading representative bodies in the commercial property industry.  The PIA membership comprises: Association of Real Estate Funds; British Council for Offices; British Property Federation; Commercial Real Estate Finance Council Europe; Investment Property Forum; Revo; Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors; and the Urban Land Institute. The Centre for Cities is the only think tank dedicated to improving the performance of UK cities.

This event, which is the second in a series of three working across different combined authorities, will look at the ways the West of England can use its increased powers to develop its brand and draw in more investment for the area.

Building on previous work on public assets by Centre for Cities, and expertise from the PIA’s extensive membership, the roundtable will bring together senior level attendees from the real estate industry and local public sector to discuss and debate how cities have already used their land and property assets to support their finances and attract further investment. It will, in particular ask:

  • How has the West of England used its powers to support further investment in the area so far?
  • How has the local private sector supported this, and is there more they could do?
  • What more do combined authorities like West of England need to support further investment?

The event is by invitation only. Please email for more information.
