Last year, over 200 economic development and regeneration professionals joined The Institute of Economic Development, Planning and Placemaking Resource at the IED Annual Conference 2014 to discuss the most pressing issues in achieving true economic development and create an enabling environment for economic growth. From capitalising on local enterprise partnerships to exploring the new European funding landscape, the conference examined these continuously testing issues with greater depth and detail to develop, together, solutions to some of the most pressing challenges faced by the industry.
Following on from the success of last year’s event, the conference team at Haymarket are currently constructing a streamed, one-day programme for 2015. The agenda will allow delegates to pick and choose from sessions delving into the biggest challenges facing economic development practitioners aiming to achieve greater economic growth in their local areas.
WHO WILL BE THERE?
Economic development and regeneration professionals from across the private, public and voluntary sectors, and anyone invested in the UK economy and delivering the growth agenda. Plus, a speaker line-up including Government figures, authoritative experts and case study representatives.
