West Midlands

Welcome to Prosperity West Midlands Conference 2018.

Prosperity West Midlands: A Conference to discuss the future of our region outside the EU

This one day, invitation-only conference provides top decision-makers in the region to come together and begin to chart a course for the West Midlands, and the UK, outside the EU.

Our region faces challenges but we have deep reserves of leadership,entrepreneurship and innovation to draw upon. There is much as stake – the future of the West Midlands is in our hands.

On 22nd February we will look ahead to the sort of economy and society we want to build, and identify the practical steps we need to take together to achieve this vision. We will be joined by senior representatives of the UK government but the most important people in the room will be people like you whose influence, energy and ideas will shape our economy and society for decades to come.

The prize is an open, globally competitive and prosperous region at the heart of a thriving United Kingdom.
