You are invited to the Insider Coventry Economic Forum, which will look at the exciting growth prospects for Coventry and how you can be part of them.

A panel of experts from business, marketing, development and education will explore how the city can take advantage of the upcoming opportunities including: a new business district, expansions by its two universities, city-centre regeneration, plans for 36,000 homes, a cluster of innovation centres and - of course - the Wasps giving Coventry a new pride.

Register your interest today to discuss:

  • How does the city ensure it is an equal partner with Birmingham in a devolved West Midlands?
  • Why go for a City of Culture bid?
  • How can 'Brand Coventry' be developed to attract investment, people and tourists?
  • Can the Friargate and City Centre South developments fulfil their promise to regenerate the city centre?
  • What role will the city's two universities play in developing its skills base and innovation?
  • Can the new cluster of innovation centres enhance the city's reputation?

Insider is proud to be hosting this exciting event and expects demand to be high, so please register early to avoid disappointment.
