Property professionals to debate the impact of Brexit on the Midlands property sector

How is the region attracting investors, ensuring that the leading funds and developers place their money where it will receive best return, and how is the shadow of a potential EU exit affecting the Midlands property sector?

A panel of property professionals from the public and private sectors, including Birmingham City Council leader John Clancy, Deputy CEO of Nottingham Council David Bishop, and Liz Peace, Chair of the Curzon Regeneration Company, will debate a number of topics affecting the Midlands’ ambitions for regeneration, future development and investment.

Alongside the public sector representatives, the panel will also include Rob Groves, Regional Director at Argent, James Howarth from Sterling Property Ventures, and Leigh Thomas, MD of Keir Property to provide a view from the private sector.

The event, which will take place on Friday 22nd April 2016 at the Macdonald Burlington Hotel in Birmingham city centre, is part of the Movers & Shakers series of networking breakfasts which brings together leading property professionals from across the region.  Places are still available for the event which includes the panel debate, breakfast, coffee and networking.

Event organiser Phil Laycock, said: “This is a really exciting time for the property sector in the Midlands but one that also includes a degree of uncertainty with the creation of the Combined Authority, the crystallisation of the concept of the Midlands Engine and of course a potential exit from Europe offering a host of potential risks and opportunities.

“Sweeping redevelopment of sites like Paradise and Curzon Street are fuelling the ambition of the region and providing confidence for investors looking for opportunities outside of an increasingly hot south east market and the combination of public and private sector representative on the panel will certainly promote some interesting discussion and debate.”

The UK’s leading property and construction networking forum, Movers & Shakers has been delivering events for 20 years, attracting high calibre speakers and bringing together senior executives from across the industry.

Tickets for the event, which includes coffee networking and breakfast are £45 + VAT.  For further information, please visit
