SWM News September 2018 - Join us at our Annual Conference
We’d be delighted if you could join us for our Annual Conference on Monday 3 December at Edgbaston Park Hotel at the University of Birmingham.
This year we’re focusing on local industrial strategies and what they mean for the region. The West Midlands Combined Authority will be one of the first areas in the country to deliver its local industrial strategy (LIS) this Autumn. Worcestershire, the Marches and Stoke & Staffordshire LEPs will follow with the publication of their strategies in 2019.
We’re in the process of developing the full agenda which will allow you to hear first-hand from the WMCA how their LIS will drive continued business growth and productivity improvements across the West Midlands, in way that ensures all our residents and communities feel the benefits. It will include an opportunity for you to shape the delivery of sector action plans. It will also be a chance to help Worcestershire, the Marches and Stoke and Staffordshire LEPs develop their LIS.
Our members can join us for free and we’d love to see plenty of new faces in the room. Full details including registration are available on our website.
Anna Bright, Chief Executive, on behalf of the SWM Team.
