Nottinghamshire Economic Forum Breakfast 2017

19 January, 2017, 7:30 am - 9:15 am

Host: Insider Media – Economic Forum
Venue: PKF Cooper Parry Offices, Sky View, Argosy Rd, East Midlands Airport DE74 2SA
Date: Thursday 19th January, 2017
Time: 7.30am – 9.15am
Cost: FREE

It’s taken a long time to get the pieces into place, but has Nottingham and Nottinghamshire’s time come at last?  The city and county have so much to offer business: an overhauled transport system and links; a revolutionised education system; sites across the city and county made investment-ready; a renewed retail offering. And all this to be promoted through a newly formed inward investment agency.

Insider invites you to a special Economic Forum where we’ll look at the prospects for the county and the city. How can these improvements and existing assets – transport hubs, science parks, logistics centres, world-renowned universities, thriving towns – help both existing businesses and attract further investment?

This is your chance to hear from the top table about the decisions that will shape the economy of the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, and question those decision makers. Our Economic Forum will explore how we can create much-needed grade-A office space, stimulate speculative development, and get the transport links and skills improvements still needed.

Issues to be explored at this event include:

  • How Nottingham and Nottinghamshire market themselves to the world
  • How further expansion of the tram network can benefit the economy
  • What other infrastructure improvements are needed
  • The skills needs of the city and county
  • The role of the public sector in helping speculative development
