Our Head of Communications and Stakeholder Management, Lesley Holt, will be speaking at this year’s virtual West Midlands Development Conference on the 10th November.

The event will talk about how the Midlands is thriving; with inward investment at an all time high, and the arrival of projects such as HS2 and events including the Commonwealth Games that trend is only set to continue.

To fully maximise the opportunities presenting themselves a collaborative approach will be needed – and that’s why all the key influential figures will gather at this event, hosted by Built Environment Networking, to connect, meet and drive future growth across the region.

There will be discussions the key updates happening across the West, East and Central Midlands regions from those in the know, with Lesley talking about how the connectivity and innovation in the region makes the West Midlands a brilliant place to invest.

Other panels will discuss and present their ongoing development plans, revealing exclusive insights and future schemes set to take place across the region.

It’s a truly exciting time for the area and this is a must-attend event for those in the built environment sector looking to be at the forefront of the region’s future vision and be involved in the biggest developments.

Built Environment Networking will have an incredible panel discussing their developments and ongoing vision – explaining how firms can get involved. Some of the topics to be discussed include:
