The transformation of ‘fringe’ locations around the City of London has been one of the Capital’s great success stories in recent years. The proliferation of tech and creative businesses in Clerkenwell, Farringdon, Shoreditch and Hoxton has fanned out from the ‘Silicon Roundabout’ on Old Street and created a new digital quarter. The official name for the area may be ‘Tech City’ but for many, this exciting, energised collection of businesses is now simply ‘Hipsterland’.

At this seminar, leading City fringe agent, Shaun Simons,; Paul White of Shoreditch-based, award-winning architects, Buckley Gray Yeaoman; and Philippa Davies, Senior Leasing Surveyor at Derwent London – one of the area’s most prominent developers – will discuss what’s been happening in the location, how it has emerged from the turmoil of 2016 and what the future holds for it. Mishcon de Reya’s Susan Freeman will also look at the particular challenges facing tech start-ups.

The event will be a great opportunity to get a better understanding of one of London’s most exciting property markets.


Tickets are £65 (+VAT) for Profile members and £95 (+VAT) for non-members. Includes buffet lunch.
