Join us for an afternoon of insightful debate and discussion at the inaugural Cheshire and Warrington Economic Summit.

About this Event

Keynote speakers announced!

Cheshire and Warrington’s economy is growing at a faster rate than the rest of the Northern Powerhouse, it is home to some of the most significant UK and Global brands and a wealth of high-performing, fast-growth businesses. Jobs are being created and the area continues to benefit from good connectivity north and south.

However, with a period of readjustment as the UK prepares to depart the EU, we will need to work to maintain outstanding economic performance.

At the Summit, we will be hearing from National and International speakers for an afternoon of lively debate as we explore what role Place and Identity play as we build on our economic strengths in manufacturing, life sciences and clean energy.
