Turning policy initiatives into delivery opportunities

Our interest is in cities and how their infrastructure and built environment can become more energy and resource efficient. In particular our events explore how a city's policy initiatives translate into delivery opportunities for the private sector. Base City events also address the relationship between sustainable development, economic growth and inward investment.

Base events are characterised by very high quality content and speakers, which in turn attract a senior and influential private and public sector community. As a result our events provide unrivalled routes to market for organisations looking to profit from the burgeoning low-carbon city renewal activity.

We actively seek to identify and develop events in cities with progressive and ambitious low-carbon plans that offer the best growth and business development opportunities. We run annual Base events in London, Glasgow and Leeds and have just announced 2 new shows in Birmingham (April 2013) and Nantes in France (June 2013).
