The Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) annual conference will take place next month at ACC Liverpool.

Now in its second year, the event will be once again hosted by broadcaster and Political Editor at ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Ranvir Singh, on Tuesday 19 November.

Seen as a highlight in the local business calendar, over 250 people from key companies across the public and private sector will come together to address the business opportunities and challenges facing the city region.

The conference will provide an update on current economic issues, review what has been achieved during the last year, and consider what the future holds for the LEP and the region overall. The main themes for this year’s conference will be on Investing in Liverpool City Region, Business Growth and Growing our Talent. An exhibition will showcase a number of local businesses.

Asif Hamid MBE, Chair of the LEP said: “Last year’s successful conference brought the region’s key stakeholders together with a wide range of issues being discussed, we hope to build on this by covering more topics alongside significant key note speakers and panellists. The exhibition will provide a perfect business showcase and networking opportunity.”

Headline sponsor this year is Typhoo, based in Moreton, Wirral. Des Kingsley, CEO of Typhoo said, “We are delighted to be headline sponsor at this year’s LEP Annual Conference. This is a great opportunity for Typhoo, as an international brand, to associate ourselves with one of the leading business conferences within the Liverpool City Region”.
