The CTBUH has revealed that The Shard at London Bridge will be the venue for the networking reception during the London 2013 conference, Height and Heritage: The Unique Challenges of Building Tall in Historic Cities. The 306m tower is scheduled to open only a few weeks before the conference in June 2013.
