Portsmouth and Hampshire is buzzing and for several years now the attractiveness of the South coast has not only been a draw for tourists but now it is a key area for business. The inward investment in Portsmouth is significant and we have a panel that represents a significant part of the development and regeneration that is underway in the City.

The City Council are pleased to have an opportunity to update the business community on current development activity and plans and are keen to use this platform to engage and consult with the supply chain.
