    International Business Festival

Cherie Blair, CBI Director-General Carolyn Fairbairn, and Siemen’s CEO Jurgen Maier among confirmed speakers for the event in June

The International Business Festival today announces the first wave of speakers, sessions and sponsors. The event, which to date has delivered over half a billion pounds of trade and investment for the UK, will be held once again in Liverpool in June 2018.

The published programme will run on the Festival’s Futures Stage, a platform for lively debate and expert insight. Each speaker will bring a unique perspective on the challenges and opportunities facing business, and how to drive growth and innovation.

More speakers and session information will be released in the lead up to the beginning of the Festival on 12 June 2018.

Max Steinberg CBE, chairman of the 2018 International Business Festival, said: “The key to the growth and success of any business is the ability to accurately predict the future, deciding what your next move will be in a rapidly changing environment. It’s important to consider your business alongside the big trends and challenges facing us all and this is something we wanted to capture in our programme.”

“As well as experiencing our engaging main stage programme, there are also significant opportunities for Festival delegates to meet with buyers, suppliers and investors from around the world. Making these face-to-face connections is going to be a priority for UK firms as they prepare for the post-Brexit world and the new global opportunities it will present.”
