From the Festival Organiser's brochure:
"The International Business Festival is the biggest event of its kind in the world. Held across nine days over three weeks, the Festival connects globally ambitious businesses with influencers, innovators and industry leaders.
Hosted every two years in its home city of Liverpool, the event gives businesses access to the space, support and expertise they need to take the next step – whether that’s scaling up, building better supply chains or exploring new export markets.
Since its beginning in 2014, the International Business Festival has attracted more than 30,000 delegates from over 100 countries, and facilitated more than USD 750m of additional trade and investment for UK and international companies.
The International Business Festival will return in June 2018, delivered in partnership with the UK government through the Department for International Trade and supported by our patron, His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge. Additionally we work with a range of commercial partners including HSBC and British Airways and our global media partner BBC Worldwide.
