‘Six of the best’ investment opportunities in Derby and Derbyshire to be showcased at major investment show

Six of the best investment opportunities in Derby and Derbyshire are set to be showcased at a major investment show taking place this week.

Marketing Derby’s investment team will be present at the UK’s Real Estate Investment and Infrastructure Forum (UKREiiF), which is taking place at the Royal Armouries Leeds, from Tuesday, 17 May.

The three-day event will bring together the public sector – with every core UK city and region involved – alongside government, investors, funders, developers, housebuilders and more.

With more than 5,000 people set to attend, among the key events taking place will be the launch of the Midlands Investment Portfolio.

Put together by the Midlands Engine, the portfolio details investment opportunities across the region, including six key opportunities in Derby and Derbyshire.

Those opportunities are Infinity Park Derby, SEGRO SmartParc Spondon, Derby’s Heart of the City scheme, Heart of Chesterfield, the South Derby Growth Zone and the East Midlands Intermodal Park.

John Forkin, Managing Director of Marketing Derby, said: “Following a number of events held in Cannes at MIPIM earlier this year, Marketing Derby will be attending UKREiiF in Leeds to follow up contacts made, as well as catch up with many of our Bondholders from the investment and development community.

“We have also been part of the team that has pulled together the Midlands Investment Portfolio, which will be launched at a reception in the Royal Armouries and this contains six of the best opportunities in Derby and Derbyshire.”

The six Derby and Derbyshire schemes included in the Midlands Investment Portfolio have been taken from the Derby Investment Prospectus and the Derbyshire Investment Prospectus.

The Derby Investment Prospectus showcases 16 key investment opportunities across the city, worth £1.2 billion.

And the Derbyshire Investment Prospectus, produced by Marketing Derby’s Invest in Derbyshire service, on behalf of Derbyshire County Council and Derbyshire Economic Partnership, details over £1 billion key regeneration opportunities across the county.

In total, 23 projects are featured in the Derbyshire prospectus, spanning the length and breadth of the county. These range from major sites which will help drive economic prosperity and support a growing population, to smaller projects at the heart of communities.

Some of the projects in both prospectuses will provide the focus for the forthcoming Derby Property Summit, which is due to take place at QUAD, on Wednesday, 13 July.
