Three members of the Greater Manchester Local Enterprise Partnership board will address a prestigious real estate investment summit on the city’s aspirations for a more inclusive and green economy that can support the UK’s levelling up agenda.

Sir Richard Leese, leader of Manchester Council; Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester; and Chris Oglesby, CEO of Bruntwood, will be among speakers taking part in the Manchester: People, Place, Prosperity session at The London Real Estate Forum (LREF): Virtual Investment Summit on Tuesday 2nd February 2021.

Moderator for the session is Greg Clark, Global Advisor on Cities.

LREF brings together key decision-makers from the property sector, government, investment and business communities to drive sustainable investment and development in cities.

The February Investment Summit is an industry-critical briefing examining the state of the market and opportunities to drive growth across the UK. The core themes of the Manchester session are Green, Zero Carbon, Digital and Innovation.

Hosted by Marketing Manchester, the Manchester: People, Place, Prosperity session will highlight why Manchester has the foundations and building blocks to re-establish its previous momentum as the UK’s premier growth city.

The session will explore how the economic interruption of the pandemic has not diminished Manchester’s aspirations for a more inclusive and greener economy, and how Manchester is ready and able to play a leading role in the agenda to ‘level up’ the country’s economy.
