Conference Overview

Birmingham has been a busy City since HS2 was announced a few years ago and following a successful City Deal, a Combined Authority and a Midlands Engine it continues to flourish. There is a buzz like no other City in the UK.

With a strong road and rail network and two major airports nearby; urban and international connectivity is a key factor for the City and that’s before HS2 even gets to the City.

Our event in January will take a look at 2018 through the eyes of some very prominent local speakers who will also present to us their development plans for 2018.

Huw Rhys Lewis, the Managing Director of Urban Growth Company; The UGC is a special purpose delivery vehicle, established to lead and develop major infrastructure investment in the Hub, a key component of the UK Central strategic economic growth area.

Andy Duggins, Project Director at HS2 will discuss where they are up to with the scheme and the proposed station.

David Warburton, Head of Public Sector Land at Homes England will talk about their key schemes in the Midlands and where they are supporting House Building in the Midlands.

Rob Eaton is the Head of Planning, Transport & Strategy at Birmingham Airport who will tell us what is happening at the airport and where they are up to with their expansion.
