Developing the Midlands – Through £billions in Construction & Infrastructure Projects…

The Midlands is thriving – with inward investment at an all time high, and the arrival of projects such as HS2 and events including the Commonwealth Games that trend is only set to continue. To fully maximise the opportunities presenting themselves a collaborative approach will be needed – and that’s why all the key influential figures will gather at this event to connect, meet and drive future growth across the region.

We’ll be discussing the key updates happening across the West, East and Central Midlands regions from those in the know. Our incredible panels will discuss and present their ongoing development plans, revealing exclusive insights and future schemes set to take place across the region. It’s a truly exciting time for the area and this is a must-attend event for those in the built environment sector looking to be at the forefront of the region’s future vision and be involved in the biggest developments.

We will once again have an incredible panel discussing their developments and ongoing vision – explaining how firms can get involved. Some of the topics to be discussed include:

* 30bn+ of projects across the Midlands * £1.5bn of regional infrastructure investment
* Complex Development’s £100m Gasworks * Ambitious plans for the 12,000-acre Bradford Estate
