SOUTH YORKSHIRE UNVEILS UKREIIF 2023 ‘WORLD-CLASS INVESTMENT AND RELOCATION’ PROGRAMME
Published 16 May 2023 at 10:18am
South Yorkshire: a location at the heart of the UK, which offers a world-class investment and relocation opportunity, as well as being a great place to live and work. That is the message coming from South Yorkshire leaders ahead of the UK’s Real Estate, Investment and Infrastructure Forum (UKREiiF).
Key players, influencers and decision makers will gather at UKREiiF at Leeds’ Royal Armouries Museum for three days, starting on 16 May. More than 7,000 attendees are expected - including representatives from more than 250 local authorities in the UK - to highlight investment and development opportunities.
Among the South Yorkshire groups exhibiting will be South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA), Sheffield City Council, City of Doncaster Council, Rotherham Council and Barnsley Council to showcase the region’s recent success stories and attract further investment to drive economic growth.
South Yorkshire’s Mayor, Oliver Coppard, said: “This is a hugely exciting time for South Yorkshire. We’re a region turning our huge potential into reality. Already world-leaders in advanced manufacturing, we attract companies, investors and leaders from around the world.
"We’re at the cutting edge of research into health sciences and renewable energy. We have two globally respected universities and a thriving cultural sector. We combine rural beauty and urban edge right at the heart of the UK, with the Peak District National Park as our backdrop.
"We’re working with Westminster to bring more devolution to South Yorkshire so we have the powers, money and control to shape our economy so it works for us. With new leadership, ambitious plans and a warm welcome for everyone who wants to live, work and invest here, there has never been a better time to come to South Yorkshire.”
SYMCA representatives will be talking housing, culture and transport infrastructure, operating out of stand E40/44 – serving as a networking hub at the UKREiiF for South Yorkshire.
Highlights from the schedule include:
• Sheffield. Imagine the future. The time is now.
• Doncaster: The Location For Business
• Transforming Rotherham
• Barnsley the place of possibilities
• South Yorkshire: How Health Can Drive Growth
