Long established global manufacturing companies such as Rolls-Royce, Bombardier and Toyota have provided a significant number of employment opportunities in Derby over the years. Their continued success plays a hugely important role in shaping the city’s future and financial stability. In turn, Marketing Derby’s influence in driving a cohesive approach to the regeneration of the city centre is paramount to encouraging that inward investment and growth to continue. We see the expansion of the university as another great way of attracting talented people to the city, the key is working on retaining them post-graduation.
Derby benefits from excellent infrastructure and connectivity, which makes it the perfect location for venues such as the new Derby Arena. With only a short drive to the Derbyshire Peak District, and nationally-acclaimed attractions such as Chatsworth House, Derby also has lots to offer from a tourism perspective.
The recent influx of quality, independent eateries has further enhanced the rejuvenated Cathedral Quarter, breathing life back into the city centre.
