Midlands Connect Launch Event
Midlands Connect is formally launching in Derby on 22nd October, 9.30 - noon at the Roundhouse in Derby.
Business are invited to attend this session, which will include contributions from Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin and HS2 Chairman Sir David Higgins.
Formed a year ago, Midlands Connect is a partnership of public and private sector bodies brought together to promote strategic road and rail development, connecting businesses across the east and west Midlands and providing the infrastructure to fuel the 'Midlands Engine of Growth'.
In this summer's Budget the Chancellor announced £5 million to develop this work further - this significant event marks the formal launch of the initiative and will highlight the work done so far and those areas businesses need Government infrastructure spend to focus on to unlock further growth in the Midlands.
Please RSVP by 16 October to Lisa Ollis at firstname.lastname@example.org
