Since MIPIM 2019, huge progress has been made changing the physical landscape of the West Midlands through numerous built environment initiatives. Devolved housing and land funds under a new single funding portal are turning into real homes, offices and jobs; debt funds are being expanded, backing essential residential and commercial schemes; 5G initiatives have begun to further our “smart region” aspirations, and unprecedented transport investment has unlocked new development opportunities. These are just a few examples and this doesn’t even factor in our £10 billion investment portfolio at MIPIM 2020. What’s next? Find out from the region’s leaders at this event.

Speakers:
  • Councillor Bob Sleigh, Deputy Mayor, West Midlands Combined Authority
  • Gareth Bradford, Director of Housing and Regeneration, West Midlands Combined Authority
  • Ian Martin, Investment and Commercial Activities Director, West Midlands Combined Authority
