Taking place on 30 October, this event will see Manchester City Council chief executive Joanne Roney, leader Richard Leese, Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham, and chief executive of the Combined Authority Eamonn Boylan come together for the first time ever to answer burning questions regarding the past, present and future of the city’s development.

A high-level audience is set to attend at the Lowry Hotel, with invitees drawn from senior property developers, council leaders, investors, architects, civic leaders and planners, who will provide stimulating questions about Manchester’s journey so far, and what the future holds.

Tickets are priced at £150+VAT and are limited – email events@placenorthwest.co.uk to register your interest.
