The cities of the north are starting to take more responsibility for driving their local economies with many of the issues and views being discussed by delegates at the 2016 event already drawing attention from the UK government.

The UK Northern Powerhouse International Conference and Exhibition 2017 will offer high-level interactive debates, interviews, workshops and exhibits – all geared to make the North of England a better place to do business.

High-profile and influential speakers will share their insights at he conference on the challenges of winning in a global marketplace, improving the quality of life in local communities and the potential benefits of commercial collaboration.
