International Festival for Business

The International Festival for Business 2014 is a global gathering of the world’s most inspiring businesses; an arena where pivotal industries converge to trade ideas, products and contacts. The festival will be an Olympics for business with hundreds of world-class events from June to July 2014 in Liverpool, attract a million visitors from across the globe, and bring £100 million worth of investment. It is an urban festival of commerce, bringing together cities from the North to the South, East to West in 61 days of events, exhibitions, showcases and celebrations.

The festival will enable international business minds to broaden their horizons, access new global markets and cultivate fresh ideas to inspire profitability. It will act as a launch pad for commercial success, by providing opportunities to engage with new networks and make global deals.
