SPEAKERS & CONFERENCE AGENDA

We’re going to be hearing from those responsible for driving economic growth within the West of England – with leaders from both the public and private sector – along with plenty of networking time to make new connections. We’ll be hearing about how we can collaborate to unlock and maximise the potential of the region – enabling homes, jobs and regeneration – whilst discovering exclusive development plans and insights.

Keynotes:

We’ll hear from three regional VIP’s, including Mayor Marvin Rees, who’ll deliver keynotes to establish the conference tone, speaking about the important topics and constraints, whilst aligning the audience to help deliver the vision and future aims for the West of England. Keynotes include:

Panel Discussion – Industrial Strategy:

Our first session will see key players from within the region provide exclusive insight into how the West of England is embracing the industrial strategy and how they’ll be setting up to maximise opportunities in the future. It’ll boost the local economy by ensuring investment in skills, innovation, transport and culture, and our VIP panel will discuss some of the key topics to ensure we can boost the West of England’s economy.

Presentations – Major Development Plans: 

Four leading developers will share presentations on their ongoing and future development plans across the West of England as they contribute to the economic growth story of the region. They’ll be leading key strategic developments to boost jobs, homes and opportunities.

  • Acorn Property Group will share a presentation on some of their exciting developments across the West of England, including their transformational scheme of the former Old Brooks Dye Works on the outskirts of Bristol, and the riverside project in Barnstaple which will also include 13,500sq ft on commercial space.
  • Bath & North East Somerset Council will present on the Bath Enterprise Zone as the development takes place and they’ll be sharing details of the future of the area. That will include the potential regeneration for a site North of the river in which they’re seeking a development partner – whilst Bath Quays is set to house the biggest office development ever undertaken in Bath.

Presentations – Housing & Residential Development Plans (Sponsored by Pegasus Group):

Four market leading players will share their ongoing and future residential and housing development plans for the West of England through onstage presentations. With the increased employment opportunities set to come to the city through the ongoing and future developments in the pipeline, along with the arrival of new and improvement infrastructure, the region will need to accelerate the delivery of residential and available housing and our speakers will talk about those projects central to ensuring the housing needs are met. Presentations from speakers will include:

  • The incredible development by YTL Developments of Filton Airfield which will be transformed into a new community alongside new infrastructure, amenities and, potentially, Bristol Arena.
  • Exciting plans by regional developer Cubex Land, which include an overview of their plans for the former Avon Fire and Rescue building – one of the only remaining regeneration sites in the heart of Bristol city centre.

Presentations – Infrastructure Development Plans:

We’ll be hearing about the key infrastructure projects and developments set to be undertaken across the West of England which will be crucial to ensuring productivity improves across the region whilst delivering better connectivity between cities, towns and more rural areas. From physical infrastructure to innovative and digital connectivity we’ll be hearing about the key schemes and future visions for the region and how these will play their part in the economic growth story. Speakers include:

  • Bristol Airport is thriving and with the Government’s recent announcement of support to regional airports the trend is set to continue. We’ll be hearing about their plans to attract more passengers and deal with more cargo to drive economic growth within the region.

Presentations – University Estates Development Plans:

Four leading higher education institutions from across the region will share their future estate and property development plans as they look to increase student numbers and drive the development of skilled workers.
