CitySession: Manchester – An International City

Date & Time
Venue
Barbirolli Rooms, The Bridgewater Hall

Our next #citysession will focus on the international economy in Manchester and what makes it an important hub for global activity.

As globalisation transforms Manchester’s landscape and fuels its economic growth, we look at what lies behind these developments and drives people to our city to live, work and play.

We will explore how different sectors of the business community are contributing to the changes, including sport and leisure, retail, tourism, property and international students.

Our panel of experts will share their knowledge and experience of what makes Manchester such a magnet for major overseas investment and activity.

The event will seek to bring out the positive effects for the city region, its businesses, residents and infrastructure, and to provide guests with valuable insights into how they too can tap into Manchester’s success on the international stage.
