The British are coming.

The British Council for Offices has launched the conference program for their 2007 Annual Conference. Dan Doctoroff, Deputy Mayor for Economic Development and Rebuilding of New York City, will give the keynote address at the conference.

The conference takes place on 2- 4 May at the Waldorf Astoria, New York. It is the first time the event has been held outside Europe.

Doctoroff will give the keynote address, 'What Makes a City World Class' using New York as an example, explaining how New York City is addressing such issues as infrastructure, commercial and residential developments to maintain its position as a global city and asks how do those investments translate into opportunities.

Doctoroff came into office a few months after 9/11 and oversaw one of the most dramatic economic resurgences in the world, spearheading the effort to reverse New York's fiscal crisis after the attacks of 9/11.

This year's conference, "World Class Spaces for World Class Cities," spans two and a half days (making it a day longer than usual).

A range of British and American speakers will address such issues as governance, occupational requirements, office design, investment and global issues including climate change, renewables and sustainability.

Other keynote speakers include; Mike Hussey, Land Securities, Paul Edwards, Hammerson, Larry Silverstein, Silverstein Properties, Wolfgang Grulke, Author and Futurist, CEO FutureWorld International Ltd and Rafael Vinoly, Rafael Vinoly Architects.
