This story is over

Team Lincolnshire will come together again at a special dinner in London to promote the county as an attractive place to work, live, visit and invest.

As part of MIPIM UK, the UK’s largest exhibition and conference for property professionals, Team Lincolnshire will attend a dinner at the Lansdowne Club in Mayfair on Thursday, October 20.

The team is made up of a group of public and private sector ambassadors from the county.

The dinner will be hosted by Councillor Colin Davie, Executive Councillor for Economic Development at Lincolnshire County Council and a board director at the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership, and the guest speaker will be Ian Harrison, Acting Director Exports and Investment at the Department for International Trade (formerly UKTI).

The team will be highlighting the county in a bid to boost infrastructure to support the visitor economy as well as its existing Food Enterprise Zones such as the ones in Holbeach, Hemswell, and Europarc, Grimsby.

Last year’s Team Lincolnshire dinner at MIPIM UK attracted around 100 guests.

Greater Lincolnshire LEP Director Ruth Carver said: “There’s a lot to shout about across Greater Lincolnshire so it’s important that we take the opportunity to let people know why it’s such an attractive place for investors and developers to base their projects.

“Inward investment both from the UK and overseas plays an important role in supporting the growth of our economy.

“MIPIM offers an unrivalled opportunity to get in front of leading investors and developers and highlight what we have to offer.”

“With the support of our property companies, we are looking forward to meeting future as well as current clients. We will certainly be banging the drum about the Greater Lincolnshire region as it continues to thrive as a dynamic and buoyant place to live, work and invest.”
