About this Event

The new government has made 'levelling-up' opportunities and economic performance across the UK a core component of its forward programme. Outcomes in the North will be pivotal to this agenda and will require investment in innovative industries, inter-regional connectivity and public health. Open Forum Events' annual Northern Economic Summit will bring together civic, business and tech leaders; economic, scientific and public policy researchers, industry chiefs, local authorities and central government to discuss the initiatives, services and capital the region needs to become a self-sustaining economic power.

The CPD accredited Summit agenda is a comprehensive programme of presentations, panel discussions and keynotes exploring:

The growing interaction(s) between environmental and economic sustainability. Learn from regional projects pioneering new models of natural liveable city regions; maximising the economic and health benefits of investment in the environment, creating sustainable growth and a good quality of life.

How algorithms, blockchain and cryptocurrencies could fundamentally disrupt the future of work, profit and power in the North.

Support available through central and local authorities to start ups, SMEs and existing organisations looking to expand or set-up in the region.

Major infrastructure investments in connectivity, construction and technology across the North; reviewing the economic and social impact of projects like HS2, Crossrail for the North and the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework.

High-impact policy recommendations from the UK's leading think tank organisations, including the Institute for Public Policy Research, Policy Connect, Core Cities UK and the Centre for Towns.

Cross-sector business and leadership skills; as well as opportunities to build new relationships between governance and industry.

Attracting and sustaining inward international investment.
