The second UK Northern Powerhouse International Conference & Exhibition will be held at Manchester Central on February 21 and 22, 2017.

The first Conference & Exhibition was held in Manchester in February 2016; attended by over 2,500 Business leaders – the event was a huge success.

To help with the continued development of the UK Northern Powerhouse we have now set up an Advisory Board – Chaired By Lord Kerslake – click here for details.

The conference has also become an “aggregator” for the work being done on the Northern Powerhouse by many other bodies; therefore we are providing a platform for them to discuss their work at the conference – including:

  • UK Government’s Northern Powerhouse Partnership Programme
  • Northern Powerhouse Partnership, led by George Osborne MP
  • Business North
  • Institute of Directors
  • Confederation of British Industry
  • The Federation for Small Businesses
  • IPPR North, and many others.

In the Conference this year we have sessions on:

  • The Northern Powerhouse in the Post-Brexit era
  • Delivery and Finance
  • Competitiveness and Productivity
  • Air and Road
  • Ports and Rail
  • Powering the Powerhouse
  • Manufacturing the Powerhouse, and
  • Big Data.
