FORUM

The Develop Croydon Forum is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company made up of more than 65 businesses and organisations who collectively work together to promote Croydon as a location to invest, work and live.

The Forum represents key stakeholders across the private, public and third sectors who want to contribute to the regeneration and economic growth of the borough. The direction, activities and finances of the Forum is decided by an independent committee.

Members include landowners, occupiers, construction professionals, investors, service providers, developers – anyone with a vested interest in Croydon and its long-term future.

Members are invited to attend regular Forum meetings, alongside high-profile networking events – including MIPIM and the London Real Estate Forum, workshops, round table discussions, and exclusive partner briefings. Other key benefits include branding on the Develop Croydon website and our regular e-bulletins, and profiling your schemes and services in our marketing materials, such as the Croydon News and our publications.

Forum membership starts from as little as £1,250 per annum and is open to any Croydon-based business – no matter its size or sector. Businesses based outside the borough with a significant commitment to Croydon may be eligible to join the Forum.

For more details and to find out about joining the Forum, contact the Forum Secretary.
