To follow our successful conference in February this year, in 2020 the New Statesman Northern Powerhouse Conference returns with a day of insight on the future of the North. Leading political and business figures, and advocates of the Northern Powerhouse strategy, will explore the key themes of: green growth; investment in northern business, infrastructure, and transport; sport; media; and the rebalancing of the economy.  
Through panels, live interviews, speeches, and debates, parliamentarians and local government leaders will discuss policy areas from towns, metro mayors, and the skills challenge, to the region’s cultural capital and inward investment. The Spotlight conference will bring together stakeholders and decision-makers from across the public and private sectors to discuss the future of the region.
