The space that we create at PlaceEXPO will be designed to reflect and emphasise the ideal balance we all strive to achieve in our personal lives and at work, but which we often struggle to find."

A spokesman for Cheshire West & Chester Council said: "Cheshire West & Chester are delighted to confirm they will be part of PlaceEXPO in Liverpool. The Council will be promoting the wealth of opportunities and scope for investment from across the Borough; highlighting key sites including the Chester Business Quarter and Ellesmere Port development sites, promoting sector strengths in finance and advanced manufacturing as well as showcasing assets including the newly developed University of Chester High Growth Centre at the former Shell Thornton site."

A spokesman for Lightech said: "Lightech is proud to be the official supplier of technical services, creative lighting and audio visual systems for PlaceEXPO.

In addition, our event power division offers generators and power distribution for outdoor events, festivals, exhibitions and sporting hospitality throughout the UK and Europe."

Ann Clarke, joint managing director of Claremont Group Interiors said: "There is no doubt that PlaceEXPO will be a must-attend event this summer and a fantastic opportunity to put North West businesses on a world stage. We're delighted to be lending our support."

A Cheshire East Council spokesman said: "The IFB provides a great opportunity for us. Cheshire East Council is delighted to be part of PlaceEXPO 2014 and in addition, we will also be working with the newly established BioHub at Alderley Park, to host an international conference for the Life Sciences sector as part of Science and Technology week on 26 June.
