UK: Liverpool to Host International Festival For Business Again in 2016

george osborneThe International Festival for Business (IFB) is to return to Liverpool in two years’ time following its exceptional inaugural year.

The announcement was made by the chancellor George Osborne during a keynote speech at one of the festival’s key events, the Santander SME summit at the Cunard Building on the city’s historic waterfront.

He said: “When I travel round the world meeting foreign governments and investors I am selling Britain as a brand and events like this International Festival for Business make that job easier. It’s a shop window for global markets and a reminder that we can be proud of the stamp that reads ‘Made in Britain’.

“So today I am backing this initiative, committing the funding requested by the Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson and Liverpool city council for another festival here in Liverpool in 2016.”

He added: “I will work with you all of you here to put on event that is even bigger and even better in two years’ time, so we can continue to put Britain, this great city of Liverpool and our inspirational small businesses out in the front.”
