Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park tour and summer reception at NLA

See first-hand the legacy development that has taken place at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in the last decade. 

Please join us for the IoD London Property and Built Environment’s Summer Reception 2022, where we will be celebrating the dual occasion of Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee plus the 10-year anniversary of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Site Tour: A site tour of the Olympic Park will start at 16:00 at NLA’s exhibition space with a ‘model talk’ over their giant interactive model of central London, which brings the story of London’s historical and physical development to life. The model covers more than 85 square kilometres of London, 19 boroughs and approximately 170,000 buildings, extending from King’s Cross in the north to Peckham in the south, and the Royal Docks in the east to Old Oak Common in the west.

The group will then be led on an approximately 90-minute tour of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, taking in such highlights as:

  • International Quarter London, a new live/work neighbourhood in the heart of Stratford
  • East Bank, where work has begun on a series of future homes for renowned institutions including the BBC, V&A, Sadler’s Wells, London College of Fashion and Washington’s Smithsonian Collection
  • The new campus for UCL East
  • The retrofitted 2012 Broadcasting Centre, now called Here East and the new home to BT Sport and The Bartlett, plus a new East London V&A Collection and Research Centre.
  • The pivotal 2012 Games icons – the Aquatic Centre, Velodrome, London Stadium and Copper Box – complete this jam-packed tour

Summer Reception:  We will then gather from 18:00 at NLA Westfield Stratford City for our summer reception, jointly hosted by the Property and Built Environment Group and our partners NLA. Everyone will be able to circulate around the new london model, as described above, as well as NLA’s current exhibition, providing many opportunities for engaging networking and discussion about the future development of our global city.

This event is limited to 25 attendees for the Tour + Reception, and 95 for the Reception Only. Early booking is advised.
