LCA has taken the brief from three-year incumbent FD Tamesis.

Taking place in November at ExCel London, the event is designed for potential investors and anyone involved with the regeneration of the region.

‘David Miliband has described this event as “the Davos of regeneration”. It is the definitive event for the region,’ claimed LCA director Jane Groom.

In 2006, the forum attracted figures of over 7,000 visitors and more than 250 exhibitors from the public and the private sector. Previous speakers have included the communities secretary Ruth Kelly and the mayor of London Ken Livingstone. This year’s speakers have not yet been confirmed.

The Thames Gateway is to undergo the biggest regeneration project in Europe with £7bn of public sector investment taking place which will help to create 180,000  jobs and 160,000 new homes.

Groom joined LCA from the government department for Communities and Local Government last September (PRWeek, 15 September 2006).
