The annual Greater Lincolnshire LEP conference will take place at the Lincolnshire Showground in September.

This year’s theme is The Future of the Lincolnshire Economy and hundreds of business people in Greater Lincolnshire have already signed up for their free delegate pass.

The keynote speaker will be Sir John Peace, Chairman of the Midlands Engine, who will talk about the future of the economy and how Greater Lincolnshire fits into the Midlands Engine’s vision.

Other panellists at the conference and networking event will include:

  • Richard Blackmore, Regional Director of the CBI East Midlands
  • Richard Jones, MD of Amelio Energy
  • HR consultant Claire Threapleton
  • Professor Simon Pearson from the Lincoln Institute of Agri-Food Technology
  • Allan Simpson, Strategic Growth Manager at Anglian Water

“The annual LEP Conference is an essential date in the Greater Lincolnshire business calendar, attracting more than 400 influential business people every year to discuss the latest trends and help shape the future of the area’s economy,” said Ursula Lidbetter MBE, Chair of the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership.

“We are particularly delighted to welcome back Sir John Peace at this pivotal time in our growing status within the Midlands Engine, as both our keynote speaker and panellist this year.

“Our conference will bring together key leaders from business, education and the public sector as well as industry and Government representatives to look at the successes, challenges and opportunities for our economy in the future.

“We look forward to staging another successful and well attended event.”

The conference will feature high-profile keynote speakers, four panels discussing the future of skills, energy and water, digitalisation, and robotics and automation, and plenty of networking and new trading opportunities, alongside relevant exhibits showcasing future technology and ideas which will fuel our economy into the future.

It is staged in partnership with the Institute of Directors (IoD), the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) and the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce.

The LEP Conference 2018 takes place at the EPIC Centre, Lincolnshire Showground, from 8am until 2pm on Friday 28th September 2018.
