Iain Stewart MP is set to speak at South Northamptonshire Council’s (SNC) Innovation and Investment Conference at Silverstone on Wednesday, 19 September 2018.
In December 2017 the Milton Keynes South MP was appointed the champion for the Cambridge- Oxford Growth Corridor and is now chairman of an All Party Parliamentary Group which is tasked with realising the potential of what has been described as a ‘once in a generation opportunity.’
This event is for SNC to thank all local businesses and has been sponsored by Silverstone Circuits Ltd, MEPC - Silverstone Park, Virtually Entertained, TotalSim and 4Events.
SNC Leader, Cllr Ian McCord, said: “It’s not just this council saying South Northamptonshire is ideally positioned to play a key role in the growth of the corridor.
“The venue where Iain and others will be speaking is the epicentre of the high-tech innovation industry in this country and is recognised globally.
“The Silverstone Technology cluster recognises that innovations being made in this region spill over into a wide range of industries and we have a chance to exploit the area’s potential to secure jobs, quality of life, investment and growth.”
Every year SNC hosts an event to showcase its open for business approach and to thank local businesses for their contribution to the local economy.
This year’s focus is on innovation and investment; delegates will hear from local business leaders, as well as benefit from prime networking opportunities, business growth one to ones and be treated to interactive e-sport activities.
As well as the range of e-sport activities which have been sponsored by local businesses, there will be photo opportunities on Silverstone’s world famous winners’ podium and a competition to find the best networker on the night. The winner will receive an Ultimate Drive Day Experience at Silverstone circuit.
SNC invites representatives from all local businesses to reserve a place for free via: www.southnorthamptonshire.eventbrite.com.
