We recently sponsored the UK Northern Powerhouse Conference, which took place in Manchester on 21st and 22nd February. The conference was attended by over 2,500 delegates, including overseas delegations from the governments of China and India, 75 exhibitors, almost 100 speakers and over 600 for the Northern Lights Awards Dinner.
The conference coincided with the launch of our report with IPPR North (Institute for Public Policy Research), looking at the funding and financing issues relating to infrastructure in the Northern Powerhouse region.
Our involvement with the Northern Powerhouse agenda continues as Infrastructure Partner, Andrew Herring, sits on the Northern Powerhouse Advisory Board. The board is chaired by Lord Kerslake and has been set up to assist with the continued development of the UK Northern Powerhouse.
