‘Birmingham will be a truly great city when it is finished,’ a wise old sage once quipped.
Well we’re not quite there yet but with the likes of Paradise, Arena Central, a stunning new New Street station, HS2 and Snow Hill reshaping the city’s skyline there’s a real buzz among Brummies.
There are challenges, too: Devolution, metro mayors, Kerslake, skills retention… all issues to be debated and tackled.
Private sector lobbying and connections organisation Downtown in Business will be doing exactly that when it launches in Birmingham later this month.
Downtown was launched in 2004 and is now established in Liverpool, Lancashire, Manchester and Leeds, with a membership of over 900 high growth businesses from a diverse range of sectors.
Join Downtown for its exclusive Birmingham launch event at the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse on the 25th floor of the Cube on September 24, 2015 at 6:00pm.
Come along to enjoy the panoramic views of Birmingham and hear from Downtown CEO Frank McKenna, once described as ‘the most powerful politician in the North West’, who will talk about his ambitions for Downtown in Business in the city and his thoughts on the big issues on the local and national business and political agenda.
You’ll also get chance to connect with other businesses, entrepreneurs and decision makers from a variety of sectors at this special event.
