Further info on PROGRESS21

PROGRESS21 is supported by a significant public, private and third sector partnership encompassing the Greater Manchester (GM) Mayor, GM Local Enterprise Partnership, business representative organisations, DIT, BEIS, and DWP along with local partners such as Citizens Advice and numerous individual companies – including BizSpace!

Mark Hughes, CEO of The Growth Company, had this to say about the event:

“The Growth Company is incredibly proud to be delivering these three events at PROGRESS21 through an immense private-public and third sector partnership – too many to individually call out. 

Employment, business growth, and securing global opportunities are all vital to the green and inclusive successful recovery of our city region, and by coming together again in a safe environment, we can continue to build momentum and support individuals, businesses, and our city region. 

The involvement of the wider Greater Manchester community will be essential to ensure that we seize the opportunity that PROGRESS21 presents. I encourage you to get involved, as attendees, speakers, exhibitors, or sponsors, for us to make this a collective Greater Manchester success.”
