Power Panel – The Future of Property & Placemaking, Disrupt or be Disrupted?

Tuesday 13th November 2018 at 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Since 2016 Downtown in Business has hosted a series of “Power Panel” events, giving leading members of the City’s business community an opportunity to discuss their views on a range of issues, which were then articulated to senior Local Authority figures.

With over 100 companies represented since the panels launched, the events have influenced policy and growth for businesses in the region, giving attendees the opportunity to connect with target customers whilst prompting campaigns to affect real change within their industry sectors.

To offer a platform to tackle some of the biggest issues threatening the growth of the region, the Power Panels will now develop into Disrupt or be Disrupted “DiBates”, with each focusing around a contentious issue which has polarised opinion within the City.

Delegates with a range of opinions on the subject will be invited to air their views, with the conversation continuing long afterwards via #DiBate, and the consensus of opinion forming the basis of Downtown campaigns to be taken forward to government on a local and national level.

People’s wants and needs within the commercial and residential property market are evolving at a pace. Digital connectivity, shared and flexible workspace and a quality environment for the workforce are all relatively new challenges for business. In addition, the demand for City Centre residential seems to be growing too – but is this for the niche apartment market or do providers need to think about creating family accommodation? The panel will also discuss build to rent, the potentially new market in work-live space and also the need for more space targeting key workers – whether that be in the new hospitals or at the Universities. Post MIPIM UK, a panel of property leaders discuss and debate the future of property in the city.

We are delighted to welcome back Carringtons Catering as our Downtown in Business’ certified catering partner for the year 2018 whom will cater the event.
