CONFERENCE OVERVIEW

The West of England Economic Growth Conference is set to bring together the region’s private and public-sector leaders to discuss the key business themes and opportunities for growth, whilst allowing collaboration within the industry to drive economic growth. Building on last year’s hugely successful event and the foundations put in place by the Mayor, Combined Authority, the LEP and Cities in key areas such as infrastructure and housing, we’ll be discussing the huge development opportunities and barriers needing to be removed as the West of England enters a massive growth cycle.

We’ll be tackling key subjects including Industrial Strategy, Skills and Education, Housing, Infrastructure and the Economy, as the conference sets out to showcase the region’s potential as the calls for a ‘Western Powerhouse’ continue and devolutionary powers advance.

The conference will identify barriers and constraints to growth within Bristol and the wider West of England region and explore what must be done to remove them – enabling the creation of homes, jobs and the huge development potential across the region. Through bringing together senior business leaders from all sectors of the built environment the event will enable collaboration of thoughts and future opportunities with a range of partners – with a clear focus on delivering positive outcomes for the West of England and further afield.
