One week out: champions of industry to discuss the business impact of the global economy at 2018 International Business Festival

Leading experts and champions of industry will come together to discuss the most important issues and opportunities businesses face in a rapidly changing global economy on the opening day of the upcoming International Business Festival.

With the world’s economy set to almost double in the next two decades, the Global Economics day on the 12th June will address the most pressing business issues such as how they will realise long-term sustainable growth, how technology will transform business and industry, and what the future world of work will look like.

Highlights of the day include a keynote speech from CBI Director General Carolyn Fairbairn, outlining the challenges facing UK businesses in 2018 and beyond, and how government and industry can provide the support needed for businesses to grow and prosper.

HSBC’s Chief European Economist, Simon Wells will share the latest data on global economic forecasts and trends with a detailed analysis and his own take on markets, trends as well as current and future opportunities for business growth.

Seismic change gives rise to new industries and eliminates outmoded organisations and markets.

Hosted by BBC’s Tanya Beckett, a panel discussion featuring futurist and best-selling author Chris Kutarna and Interim Executive Chair Designate from Innovate UK, Dr Ian Campbell will examine how seismic change is giving rise to new industries and eliminating old markets. They will explain how we are living through a second Renaissance that transforms not only systems of production, but also how we think and what we value. They will discuss how savvy businesses can embrace the changes that are coming their way.

The Festival is designed for businesses looking to grow. The programme will feature inspirational presentations, practical support and connect ambitious businesspeople with buyers, investors and future partners.

Between Festival and its partner events 27,000 attendees are expected at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool from 12-28 June, including more than 100 delegations from major international markets including India, China and the United States.

Collectively the previous two editions of the Business Festival have helped companies secure more than half a billion pounds of new trade and investment.

The 2018 International Business Festival takes place in Liverpool from 12 – 28 June. To find out more and buy tickets, visit www.internationalbusinessfestival.com
