This is the first opportunity of its kind for everyone to join together to highlight their role in delivering inclusive and good growth in the north. It will attract industry professionals, policy experts and decision makers. It will help you raise awareness of your organisation, campaigns or services….and most importantly it will help us all to work together to shape the kind of north we all want to live and work in. Everyone who attends will have the chance to showcase their work.
