Winckworth Sherwood sponsors International Waterfront Forum

Winckworth Sherwood is sponsoring the International Waterfront Forum in Liverpool on 19 June 2014. The event, which is part of the International Festival for Business (IFB) 2014, brings together representatives from New York, Shanghai and Copenhagen to discuss waterside regeneration and city waterfront promotion.

The forum will focus on waterside regeneration and city waterfront promotion with leading international practitioners together with academics and business leaders from across the UK. The talks from the international speakers will be weaved around presentations on the future of Liverpool’s waterfront by key representatives from Liverpool’s business community. Open debates will also take place with the audience on lessons to be gleaned from other global waterfronts that could be applied to Liverpool and other international waterfront cities.

The keynote speakers include: Michael Marrella, director of waterfront and open-space planning at the NYC Department of City Planning, New York City; Dr Stanley Yip, director of planning and development Asia at Arup — Shanghai; and Rita Justesen, chief planner at the City and Port Authority, Copenhagen City Council.
