It is no surprise then that Greater Manchester’s towns and cities are growing rapidly. As they aim for ambitious and inclusive growth in the coming years, they face different challenges.

How can the 10 boroughs follow today’s social value and sustainability agendas while maintaining rapid expansion? And what role can towns play in supporting the city region while maintaining their own identities?

Our panel of experts will seek to answer those questions. Greater Manchester Development Update will be held on 8 September at the Science and Industry Museum in Manchester.

Greater Manchester Development Update is sponsored by Cowgills, Wates, JMW, LUC, ClearFibre, and Curtins.

The event begins with networking and breakfast at 8am, followed by two panels and presentations. There will also be networking breaks to aid you in making valuable connections.

Greater Manchester has nearly 800 thousand more people than Northern Ireland so you would expect it to have a bigger economy

By Irbarry

    That’s a fair point! I’m a sucker for comparisons, so I always like to include one – but could have done a better job here! A better GM economy stat to pull out would have been that Irwin Mitchell’s UK Powerhouse Report predicts Greater Manchester’s economy will grow by £1.9bn by the end of next year. Thanks for the comment Irbarry. Hope to see you at the event! – Julia
