West of England Economic Growth Conference 2018

October 11 @ 0745hrs - 1645hrs

West of England Economic Growth Conference 2018 | Event

EVENT OVERVIEW

The West of England Economic Growth Conference brings together public and private sector leaders to discuss and debate the key business themes and opportunities for growth.

With an economy worth over £31 billion per year, a population of over 1 million people and over 43,000 businesses, the opportunity for growth is enormous.

The foundations have been put in place by the Mayor and Combined Authority, the LEP and Cities and with Government support in key areas such as Infrastructure and Housing starting to come forward the West of England is all set to start a massive growth cycle.

The Second West of England Economic Growth Conference takes place on October 30th in Bristol and like last year will be a day of discussion and opportunity with the region’s business and public-sector leaders coming together to discuss the key business themes and opportunities for growth.

Building on last year’s event and the devolutionary advances that have been made over the last 12 months this conference will showcase the region’s potential and allow you to hear from those businesses that are operating successfully within the current economic climate. We aim to bring you more business leaders and more opportunities for you to listen to and meet the people that are key to your business.

There have been some interesting developments around a call for a ‘Western Powerhouse’ to replicate what has happened in the North so between now and October we will be monitoring this closely to ensure that we are able to include this topic at the conference

  • Engage in one to one discussions with West of England’s business leaders
