Manchester Development Plans | Event

Inward investment and development conversations in Manchester are at an all-time high, and the skyline is becoming unrecognisable. This event will once again bring together the industry to hear about future projects set to happen across the city as new projects continue to come to fruition like never before – and 180 delegates from the biggest firms will be in attendance. Alongside hours of networking we’ll also hear from some exceptional speakers including….

  • Salboy – are behind some major Manchester schemes including the 17-storey Glass House which is proposed, and they’re now looking to move more into residential too.
  • Wigan Council – they’re transforming the town, and with the arrival of NPR and HS2 to the region investment conversations are on the up. They’re currently looking to redevelop Wigan Pier and a 2.5 ha shopping centre.
  • University of Salford – they’re actively seeking a development partner for their new £28m Theatre project and they’re looking to meet contractors to bring this scheme forward. They’ll also discuss their £800m masterplan which will have an incredible economic impact on Salford.
  • Rochdale Development Agency – the Council’s development arm are unlocking new land on their 14 ongoing business parks, and are driving further development in their town which has already seen £500m pumped into the town centre.

Event Format

Registration & Networking (15:30-16:45)

The event opens at 15:30 and you’ll receive a name badge, programme – with all delegate information, and an exclusive free development insights magazine. From here you’ll be welcome to use the free bar – with hot drinks, cold drinks and beer/wine available – and you can then network alongside other business professionals to make new commercially rewarding relationships with those within the industry. 

Speaker Presentations (16:45-18:15)

We’ll then hear from an exceptional group of speakers who’ll all share a short presentation with exclusive information and insights into their ongoing work and their future development plans within the region.

Proceeding the short presentations (which will be distributed to all delegates after the event), will be a Q&A session led by our Chair – and this will be fully led by the audience with questions open to the floor. This will allow you to ask the key questions you’re wanting answering from those at the forefront of development and regeneration within the region. 

Food & Networking (18:15-19:00)

After the presentations there will be a period to reflect and discuss the presentations, with a meet and greet with the speakers if you’re interested in discussing their presentations or future developments/projects, and the bar will once again be open with hot drinks, cold drinks, beer and wine. We’ll also be serving hot food with a delicious dish selected and served whilst you continue to make relationships stronger and meet new contacts in the industry.
