International Festival for Business 2014 and UK Trade & Investment

Back to News

The International Festival for Business (IFB) will be the UK’s most significant international trade and commerce showcase since 1951.

It will be the biggest concentration of business events globally in 2014, attracting more than 250,000 visitors from more than 100 countries across 50 days during June and July 2014. Hosted in the Liverpool City Region, the IFB will comprise well over 100 business focused events, underpinned by a major cultural programme.

It will run from 9 June to 22 July 2014.

UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) have partnered with the IFB and are hosting a number of events over the summer. The festival is a key part of the government’s ambition to:

  • promote economic growth
  • rebalance the economy
  • double UK exports by 2020

It is an outstanding opportunity for the Best of British Business to forge new international commercial partnerships and meet their global network on their own doorstep in and around the host city of Liverpool.

The UKTI contribution is on 5 levels:

The British Business Embassy event (BBE)

The BBE will take place on the 9 June in St Georges Hall in Liverpool and will be the opening event for the festival. The BBE will be themed on advanced and innovative manufacturing and will cover trade and investment.
