Ken Nettleship, Business Expansion Specialist at Invest in Nottingham, our host city’s inward investment agency, has been announced as the guest speaker at this year’s East Midlands Bricks Awards taking place on 25th March, at the Trent Bridge Cricket Ground in the Derek Randall Suite.

Ken said: “Invest in Nottingham are excited to be involved in this year’s Bricks Awards and looking forward to an evening of celebrating the region’s property and construction sector.

“In Nottingham we’ve seen cranes pop up on the horizon at an astonishing rate, and the landscape is certainly changing week to week as a result of the billions of pounds being invested in the city right now.

“Speaking at the awards will be hot on the heels of Invest in Nottingham and our partners being at MIPIM, where we will have been putting Nottingham, and the region, on the world stage, and will be a great opportunity to tell the audience how we showcased the investment that is underway and what we have planned for the next few years.”
