DIB Group chairman and chief executive Frank McKenna said:

“We are looking forward to welcoming around 200 delegates to Birmingham for this important conference next month. We know that the sector has some significant challenges at the moment- but equally there is a genuine desire from local authorities and property firms to create public-private sector partnerships that can deliver. This is a great space where we bring together senior decision-makers and industry leaders to discuss, debate, and connect. I’m sure this will be another terrific Downtown event.”
