The Northern Powerhouse conference that took place in Manchester last February was hailed as an unmitigated success. It gathered all the key players in the region and made a significant impact on all 2,000 delegates who attended. We were proud to take an active part in the event, exhibiting and sponsoring the Transport: Rail & Port panel discussion.
Building on that positive momentum, the outcomes report of the Conference has now been published under the title: “Building the Northern Powerhouse: Next steps for transformation.”
The document contains the key poll findings of an Ipsos MORI survey conducted both online and among the delegates at the Conference on Northern Business Attitudes. It also gives a detailed account of each of the panel debates that took place over the two day event.
Out of all the sessions and discussions, the report has extracted 10 recommendations, calling on the Government to adopt them and make bolder changes in order to turn the Northern Powerhouse into a reality.
The report‘s 10 step-plan was presented at a parliamentary reception at the House of Commons on 25 April.
