Chamber Logo

Bringing together business leaders from across the East Midlands, this is the only conference focusing on the region’s economic performance and prospects.  Through a series of keynote speakers and expert panels, we’ll examine the latest research and projections for the regional and national economy following the UK’s landmark decision to leave the European Union. 

In short, with strong recent regional performance against a backdrop of political uncertainty, this event will consider the key growth opportunities for East Midlands businesses.  In addition to the political and economic levers that can be used to support them.
