Big beasts from the world of property on display at the show included Sir Stuart Lipton, who delivered the CABE message at various functions;

Gerald Ronson, still smarting about the call-in of the Heron Tower for public inquiry by John Prescott; Ron Spinney, Hammerson supremo; Roger Madelin of Argent, developer for King's Cross/St Pancras; and Julian Barwick of Development Securities, now developing more space than anyone else in London at Paddington in the west and the Royal Docks in the east. All seemed on splendid form; Sir Stuart argued for more variety and fun in the City of London, whose character in any event has been changing with the influx of retailing going on. 'When you leave the office at 9 o'clock at night you don't want to find everything around deserted, ' he declared to an audience gathered round the magnificent Piper's model of London. Astragal, of course, never leaves the office until 10pm.
