npcon16logoWe are delighted to be involved in the UK Northern Powerhouse International Conference & Exhibition for a second year. The event will take place at Manchester Central on 21-22 February 2017.

The first UK Northern Powerhouse International Conference & Exhibition was held in Manchester last year and was a huge success. It was attended by more than 2,500 business leaders, with 55 high quality speakers, around 100 exhibition stands and over 500 attendees for a black tie dinner. The conference laid the basis for the UK Northern Powerhouse Outcomes Report that was launched in Parliament on 25 April 2016.

An Advisory Board has now been set up to assist with the continued development of the UK Northern Powerhouse. It is chaired by Lord Kerslake and includes our Infrastructure partner Andrew Herring.

The two-day conference and exhibition will once again feature panel sessions and interactive forums from senior representatives in sectors as diverse as education, transport, logistics, property, tech, energy, retail and finance. The conference is designed to help you understand the scale and extent of the opportunities in the Northern Powerhouse, to hear from public (central and regional government) and private sector leaders, gain valuable insights into the vision and ambitions of businesses and network with the key players, potential business partners and stakeholders in the Northern Powerhouse economy.

Come and join us – we look forward to seeing you there!
