Invitations to the event, issued today, encourage "partners' qualitative input as to what should be included [in the region's economic evidence base] and why, as such it would be appreciated if partners could give some thought to this in advance of the sessions. We are keen to establish what have we missed out of the evidence base, why this is important and what does it tell us?"

Copies of the consultation papers and online booking is available at the NWDA RIU website. Delegates may attend as many sessions as required. To tie in with the dates of the sessions the RIU will be extending the closing date of the consultation to Monday 22 September 2008.
