Six great sponsors for pro-manchester’s economics conference

Thursday, 16th August 2018

By Mel Hill

We’re delighted to see so many of our members actively getting involved in supporting the many events we do each year.

With over 150 events per calendar year, including hot topic breakfast, sector lunches, conferences and more, we have a huge variety of events, with opportunities for great exposure in front of a wide range of audiences.

Our upcoming Economics Conference is now in its fourth year, and we’ve seen great interest from our members to show their support at what is always a sold out event.

Hosted at The Lowry Hotel on Thursday 18th October, our conference will be focusing on the economics of Greater Manchester, with fascinating themes to drive the agenda.

We’ll be covering topics such as brexit, employment, inclusive growth, housing, commercial real estate and much more. As well as this, we will be addressing the challenges of congestion and pollution. Our region is growing, but so are the challenges of improving the travel to work time and experience of our workforce. The quality of the journey must improve, but so too must the levels of air quality, if quality of life is to be maintained and enhanced.

A huge thank you goes to the six sponsors who have already committed to supporting what is going to be an excellent, informative day at The Lowry Hotel.
