Showcasing the region

The return of the International Festival for Business (IFB) to the North West will deliver a wide range of events, discussions and networking opportunities designed to help companies tap into global markets.

The Festival

Taking place in Liverpool from 13th June to 1st July, the festival is set to be the world’s top business event this year, with more than 30,000 delegates in attendance across its three themed weeks:

  • Week 1 - Manufacturing 
  • Week 2 - Energy and Environment 
  • Week 3 - Creative and Digital 

The festival quickly makes the international opportunities for the region apparent, proving the strong record of attracting investors to support the large scale opportunities the North West has to offer.
