2020 Cities - London, 01 - 03 July 2015

Fourteen cities, represented by mayors, deputy mayors and senior government officials, met in London from 1-3 July 2015 for the first 20-20 Cities meeting.

Hosted by Isabel Dedring, Deputy Mayor for Transport in London, the cities came together in a roundtable format in City Hall to discuss transport solutions with companies which included IBM, PwC, Philips, Thales, BYD and MasterCard.

After the roundtable meetings, delegates were transported along the Thames via commuter riverboat, before boarding the Emirates Air Line cable car to the Siemens Crystal building.
The three-day event drew to a close on with a tour of the cycle hire operations centre and a visit to a Crossrail station, part of the largest ever European construction project.

The 14 cities that participated in the first 20-20 meeting were: Amsterdam, Barcelona, Campinas, Copenhagen, Dublin, Fukuoka, Gothenburg, Guangzhou, Hamburg, Hangzhou, London, Manchester, Paris and São Paulo. In addition, Budapest, Madrid, Chengdu and Helsinki plan to join the next meeting.
