Since 2016 Downtown in Business has hosted a series of “Power Panels” events, giving leading members of the City’s business community an opportunity to discuss their views on a range of issues, which were then articulated to senior Local Authority figures.
With over 100 companies represented since the panel launched, the events have influenced policy and growth for businesses in the region, giving attendees the opportunity to connect with target customers whilst prompting campaigns to affect real change within their industry sectors.
To offer a platform to tackle some of the biggest issues threatening the growth of the region, the Power Panels will now develop into “DiBates”, with each focusing around a contentious issue which has polarised opinion within the City.
Delegates with a range of opinions on the subject will be invited to air their views, with the conversation continuing long afterwards via #DiBate, and the consensus of opinion forming the basis of Downtown campaigns to be taken forward to government on a local and national level.
This event is by invitation only. For further information about this event please contact email@example.com
