Hosted by:

  • Paul Kehoe, Chairman, West Midlands Growth Company

Keynote speakers:

The West Midlands is securing more foreign direct investment projects than any other English region outside London. The following film showcased during the event gave delegates the opportunity to learn what makes the West Midlands an attractive investment location, directly from organisations that have already established themselves in the region.

This region is full of ambition and has billions of pounds of investment in the pipeline. The West Midlands is the proud home of Coventry, the UK City of Culture 2021, hosts of the 2022 Commonwealth Games and is also bidding for the relocation of Channel 4.

We are building momentum like never before, and the event explored how investors can capitalise on the region’s current success and bold plans for the future.
