This event runs from 8.00am (7.30am registration) till 9.30am (networking till 10.00am).

From being the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution to the home of the world’s thinnest, strongest and most conductive 2D material in graphene, Manchester has been a global player for centuries.

Boasting Europe’s largest purpose-built digital hubs in MediaCityUK; four leading universities and a student population of nearly 100,000; the largest regional Financial, Professional and Business Services (FPBS) industry outside of London; and an airport and transport infrastructure to compete on a global level, it’s hardly surprising that Manchester has proved irresistible to investors.

Included among the world’s 50 most liveable cities ahead of London, New York and Rome by The Economist Intelligence Unit in 2016 and identified as one of Europe’s top 20 digital cities, Manchester is now a world class city to live, work, visit and base your business.
BusinessCloud has joined forces with award-winning Select Property Group for its latest business event entitled: ‘Why NOW is the time to invest in Manchester.’

The event is aimed at property investors, agents and people looking to invest in property and will hear from leading politicians and figures from the world of property; education; and businesses to discuss Manchester’s investment credentials.

It will discuss the impact of Brexit; explore how Manchester stacks up against London and other UK cities; and predict what the future might hold.
