The second UK Northern Powerhouse International Conference & Exhibition was held at Manchester Central on February 21 and 22, 2017 and was another huge success with over 2,500 delegates, 75 exhibitors, nearly 100 speakers and over 600 for dinner.
UK Northern Powerhouse conference delegates however reported that they are less optimistic than they were 12 months ago that Northern economic ambitions would eventually be realised.
A survey by Ipsos MORI of almost 300 of the attendees revealed that 69 per cent of delegates were optimistic about the Northern Powerhouse initiative compared with 76 per cent in 2016, a drop of seven points.
However, Manchester’s city centre office market has bucked the national trend and has performed above the five-year quarterly average, according to Bilfinger GVA’s Big Nine report. http://www.gva.co.uk/news/Manchestersofficemarkettakeupremainsaboveaverage/
