Event description

Description

Join us at the iconic HOME Manchester centre on Thursday 23rd November where we will be bringing together thought leaders, city officials and the extended property, academic and cultural community to explore the concept of “placemaking”, address the challenges that our city regions face and collectively discuss how we can improve our built environment.

For Manchester, like cities across the country, placemaking can be a catalyst for the continued investment and development it must secure to compete nationally and on the world stage.

We have confirmed speakers from our partners:

Manchester City Council, CBRE, Manchester University, MUSE, Manchester Aiport Group, MediaCityUK, HOME, Gensler, NCC Group, General projects, BuroHappold and more to be confirmed...
