'INVESTING IN THE FUTURE' - People | Place | Economy

Tuesday 17th September 2019 - The Vox Conference Centre, Resorts World, Birmingham

Sponsorship

The West Midlands Forum For Growth is organised by Movers & Shakers; in partnership with WMGC, WMCA and DIT and is the official conference of the West Midlands Combined Authority.

This is an authoritative one-day event, bringing together Public (Central and Regional Government) and Private Sector leaders to engage and debate the key issues in driving the West Midlands economy forward.

The theme for 2019 is “INVESTING IN THE FUTURE”

People | Place | Economy

Building on the past 3 years [see feedback] the theme for 2019 is ‘Investing in the future’ - People | Place | Economy.

The day is centered on Investment and private and public sector collaboration.

The morning session will be on ‘Inward Investment’ and economic growth. We will be looking at how the region can capitalise on its progress; showcasing the £10bn West Midlands Investment portfolio and exploring how public and private sectors can collaborate to drive future growth. We will be featuring new technology and the ‘West Midlands Industrial Strategy’ - its part in driving economic growth.

The afternoon session will concentrate on people, places and communities. How can growth be inclusive and deliver positive social outcomes? With 215,000 new homes to deliver by 2031, housing will clearly feature strongly. We will be looking at how good design can deliver better living stronger communities and enhance lives. We will also consider housing delivery and what part Modern Methods of Construction and Modular can play in generating quality homes on scale.

The conference will be an exciting mix of keynotes, panel sessions, presentations and breakout sessions; designed to explore the growth opportunities, to showcase major game-changing projects, innovation and technology; enterprise; housing and inward investment across the West Midlands.

There will be plenty of opportunities to get involved. We will be using ‘sli.do’ software to enable polling and questions from the audience and for you to have your say!
