Welcome to LAST MILE

The London and South East Manufacturing, Industrial and Logistics Conference

Our 2021 inaugural London and South East Manufacturing, Industrial and Logistics Conference – LAST MILE – brought together local and planning authorities, investors, developers, consultants, agents and tenants to discuss the sector’s challenges and future opportunities.

We debated the swift growth of the industrial and logistics sector and the perception challenges it faces, particularly around sustainability and economic impact. Sessions included a focus on urban and city logistics, net zero transition and occupiers’ requirements for future workspace.

Chaired by BBC’s Sally Bundock and keynote speeches from Shirley Rodrigues, Deputy Mayor of London for Environment and Energy and Christina Calderato, Director of Transport Strategy and Policy, Transport for London, the conference  opened the debates between industry-leading experts, councils focussed on industrial growth, thought-leaders and main event partners Bridge Industrial and Prologis.

The 2021 conference took place at The Postal Museum, London and was delivered in a hybrid format. Partner exhibitions were on display and the event offered several opportunities to network with industrial and logistics decision-makers and senior local authority representatives.

The event will be returning in 2022, date to be announced early 2022.
