10.10am – 10.55am - UK investment seminar with Department for International Trade and Estates Gazette at Salon Croisette, Palais des Festivals
Session 1 - Cities, regions, corridors and clusters: are they maximising growth?
At the heart of every major economic hub in the UK is a major city, but it how much does their success rely on the strengths and capabilities of the cities that surround them, and to what extent will City Deals and metropolitan mayors help bolster development and encourage cohesive, comprehensive growth? How important is this for cities to compete globally – particularly in uncertain times - and how much appeal do corridors and clusters hold for investors? City leaders, inward investment specialists, advisors and investors debate as EG opens its MIPIM programme with a UK cities special.
Chaired by Damian Wild.

11.00am – 11.45am - Second UK investment seminar with Department for International Trade and Estates Gazette at Salon Croisette, Palais des Festivals
Session 2 - City visions
2017 is a year unprecedented on many levels, with many variables. The new political and economic landscape will deliver surprise, and it will favour the bold, the innovative and the adaptable. So if city leaders, investors and advisers had a blank page to list three things: an innovation, a policy change, a person or people, and anything else that would help realise their vision for their cities, and their regions, with inspiration coming from wherever it can be drawn, what would they be?
Chaired by Damian Wild.

The landscape for investors is changing as public and private sector seek to broker new deals over future delivery of large scale real estate and infrastructure projects. “Insource” and gain share deliver a different approach to funding and with that comes a new way for investors to engage with the public sector to support new projects. In this session we will consider how future real estate and infrastructure maybe funded and the opportunities these will provide for investors.

To reinvent their economies requires Northern cities to become more adept at attracting and leveraging private sector investment and expertise in their cities to catalyse and maximise economic growth. This session will explore what makes a city attractive to private investors and developers and importantly how private capital can be leveraged to release public sector land. What is it that investors look for when they are choosing where to invest? What gives confidence and what deters investment?


Session structure
Panel 1
What makes northern cities attractive to investors already, and what more is needed to optimise investment?


Panel 2
What are Northern Cities and UK Gov already doing to be investment ready, and what will they do next to optimise investment?


18:00 – 20:00 – Client drinks reception (invitation only)
