We are delighted to announce that Ed Cox will sit on “The Northern Powerhouse and the Financial and Professional Services Sector” panel at The Great Manchester Business Conference 2016.  The flagship event is due to take place on the 4th March at the city centre’s Hilton Manchester Deansgate Hotel.

The development of stronger transport, infrastructure and telecommunications across the region will impact on work loads and working practices. Improvement in travel to work times and the extension of work force catchment areas will force businesses to amend expansion plans to meet the growth and activity across the region.

In our panel session we will look at the plans for The Northern Powerhouse and what impact it will have on the FPS sector. We will also examine the huge infrastructure investment plans and consider the financing and funding options available to underpin the growth.

Don’t delay, reserve your places today and be part of this exciting showcase of industry expertise from Manchester’s leading business names.
