2008 sees Liverpool crowned with the title European Capital of Culture. But what will the city extract as lasting legacy benefits from its year in the spotlight? And, more widely, what can cities do to maximise the long term benefit of hosting major sporting and development events for the business community? How will the city develop in the future and what will the so called ‘Quarters look like? (Sport – Liverpool Stadium; Business – St Pauls; Digital City; Retail – Liverpool 1) That’s the focus of a one day conference being held by the Liverpool & Manchester Property Forum. Taking place on 17 June 2008, the conference will be hosted at one of Liverpool’s key locations in the middle of the commercial district. Conference delegates will have ample opportunity to view first hand the city’s new landmarks. The morning after the night before will bring together those from the public and private sector, responsible for city development, to discuss best practice in hosting events, investigate the sustainability of major urban projects, and review the long term benefits to be gained from involvement in city developments. Key note speakers include Keith Feeny, Hill Dickinson; Rod Holmes, Chairman, Mersey Partnership (tbc); Stuart Keppie, Keppie Massey Surveyors and Mersey Property Forum; Leslie Chalmers, CEO, English Cities Fund and many more. Conference organisers UK Property Forum, part of Unwired Ventures, will be announcing speakers and releasing the more detailed event programme shortly.
