The International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE) British Group are delighted to announce that the 11th Future of Design Conference London 2017 will be held in the Skempton Building at the South Kensington Campus of the Imperial College London on the 15th September 2017.

Future of Design London 2017 is the premiere conference for young design professionals and students to engage with leading lights in engineering. Presentations, talks and workshops during the day conference at the Imperial College London will provide a unique platform to engage with influential and inspiring individuals on the design challenges that we face in the future. We are also delighted to invite young designers to enter two competitions to showcase their creativity and innovative work/research.

To cap it all of the Future of Design London day conference will be followed by an evening dinner at the prestigious Millennium Gloucester Hotel, where attendees will be able to network with conference presenters as well as other young engineers, architects and students.
