Main Feel Of The Event

The National Planning Summit 2017, now in its fourth year, will be addressing the biggest challenges facing the planning system today and will be debating how true growth can be delivered in a changing policy landscape. During the research for the event, there was high demand for it to address these challenges in great detail through practical and engaging sessions, but also with the chance to debate and discuss some of the most recent announcements surrounding planning, such as the Housing White Paper in particular. As such, the day has been split into main room and breakout sessions. Main room sessions will allow for debate, and thought leadership. The breakout session will allow for practical, take-away advice and sharing of on-the- ground experiences. Please bear this in mind when preparing for your session, whilst always addressing the conference theme: How To Fund And Deliver Fast, Sustainable Growth In The Context Of Changing Planning Policy.


The National Planning Summit aims to bring together around 150 senior public and private sector planning professionals. 

A selection of companies (for the private/public sector breakdown) and the job titles (for the seniority) are below. Please note, the job titles and company names do not match as this is a scrambled list for data protection reasons, and this is not an exhaustive list.

Briefings Before/On The Day

If you would like to discuss your speaking session in more detail before the event, please arrange a convenient time with Aziliz Du Fay.

On the day, please ensure that you arrive by the beginning of the break before your session, at the latest, in order to allow enough time to be briefed. The Event Manager and/or Event Producer will meet with you during registration/the break before your session to brief you and ensure you are all set.

Please could you send us your slides (if applicable) in advance as well as bringing a copy on a USB, just in case.


If you are showing slides in your session, please send them to Abigail Bowden by Tuesday 21st March. Please ensure that your slides are in 16:9 format ratio. If you wish to use video or audio files, please provide these as separate files for the on-site AV team.


There will be evaluation forms circulating on the day on which delegates will score and chart their thoughts on your session. You will be sent your scores after the event, once all of the forms have been collated and analysed. Please also complete one yourself to let us know your thoughts on the event.


Please send all items to  Abigail Bowden  by the deadline date.
