Greater Thames Valley @ MIPIM UK
Representatives from the Greater Thames Valley will join forces to showcase the region’s key assets, upcoming regeneration projects and development schemes at the UK’s largest property event – MIPIMUK.
With more start-ups created in the Greater Thames Valley region than anywhere else in the UK, the region is a key driver of UK productivity. Bringing together leading research institutions; great quality of living, a highly-skilled population, and unrivalled connectivity, the cluster creates an economic impact that belies its size. As region, the Greater Thames Valley’s Gross Value Added (a productivity measure which assesses contribution to the economy) dwarfs that of regions with similar population sizes. In 2015/2016 its GVA hit £144,939 (million) compared to the combined GVA gure for Greater Birmingham and Solihull and Greater Manchester of £99,176 (million).
A key project which will drive the region is the Western Rail Link (WRL) connecting the main line at Slough directly into Heathrow Airport and provide access for the South West England into Europe’s busiest airport. At the London Reception on the 19th October, Network Rail will showcase how WRL will become part of this exciting new vision for UK plc and benefit the Greater Thames Valley.
You can join as a GTV supporter as well as attendance at the drinks reception to be held at the Cavalry and Guards Club, Piccadilly on October 19th.
