Vision 2018 takes place at the Business Design Centre, London from 21-22 June.

Vision 2018 is a free two-day conference and exhibition focused on the key challenges of today facing architecture and development. With three content-packed seminar theatres over two days, 2018's event will be asking big questions of big names in architecture, engineering and urban development. The key note speakers signed up are Patrik Schumacher, principal at Zaha Hadid Architects and Chris Wilkinson, director at Wilkinson Eyre in addition to a host of others. Based at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London, this year's even will be based around three big themes:

1. Added Value

With urbanism, infrastructure and architecture being fundamental to the economic success of cities, neighbourhoods, institutions, companies and brands, how can we quantify and maximise the impact of high quality design on society, economic sustainability and commercial success?

2. Health, Wellbeing and Sustainability

How can we design buildings and places that promote healthy environments, sustainable lifestyles, while also being efficient to build and run?

3. Common Good

What steps can we take to ensure that our buildings and public spaces are inclusive, safe, welcoming and make a positive contribution to civic life?
