Sitematch London will be sponsored by real estate consultancy, Knight Frank, it has been announced.
The company joins BNP Paribas Real Estate, Capita and GVA, who will be on hand to advise participating local authorities and landowners at the event, which takes place on 2 April at the Shard in central London.
SItematch London offers developers and investors the opportunity to meet London's councils to discuss opportunity sites for development in the capital, in a series of 'speed-dating' style meetings.
James Leaver, head of public sector at Knight Frank, said: "We are delighted to be sponsoring and taking part in Sitematch for the first time this year.
"Sitematch has become an important date in the calendar for public authorities and developers in London. It is a novel way for authorities to introduce their disposal pipeline and to network with the development industry.
"Knight Frank experience shows that public sector land sales represent a significant and increasingly important part of the development land supply being delivered for London.
"The main reasons for this are the GLA’s agenda to deliver more housing and economic growth for London, coupled with the continued reorganisation of public services and ability to dispose of assets into a stronger market."
