orth west agency bags city summit

Preston agency Glasgows has been appointed to organise and manage the 2007 Core Cities summit being held in Nottingham on 27-28 June. The Core Cities Group comprises eight English cities – Birmingham Bristol, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham and Sheffield – and was formed in 1996 to promote the key economic role they play regionally and nationally. Glasgows organised the 2006 Summit on behalf of Bristol City Council. the event attracted more than 350 delegates and key speakers including the Deputy Prime Minister, John Prescott. One of the key points in the brief is to provide the opportunity for delegates to see as much of the host city as possible during their stay. In Nottingham this will be achieved through study tours and the use of a mix of Nottingham’s historic buildings and modern facilities during the event. “Following the success of the 2006 event, we were asked to put forward our proposals and are delighted to have been appointed to organise and manage the Nottingham event”, said Glasgows lead project manager Punita Aga. “Our experience in Bristol and throughout the UK with similar events gives us an edge in terms of our understanding of the aims and objectives of organisations such as the Core Cities Group.” Delegate numbers are expected to hit 400 this year, and will include local authority leaders, decision-makers from regional development agencies, urban policy specialists, investors and economists and key representatives from the business sector.
