Conference Overview

Since devolution became the buzz word in the UK regions local councils have been far more proactive in terms of securing inward investment, government funding and setting out a development plan for the City. Worcester is no exception and with some impressive schemes is now ideally poised to take advantage of the momentum from London but also devolution and is becoming a key area for business.

We have a panel ready for you that will provide you with some useful market data, development intelligence, visibility on key procurement opportunities and an insight into the region’s investment potential.
