3 cities unite for investment

This morning, 100 delegates joined a networking breakfast and panel interview session sponsored by Bondholder Maber and organised by Bondholder East Midlands Airport to learn more about Power of 3 - the inward investment initiative that encompasses Derby, Leicester and Nottingham, with the airport at its heart. Having been launched at MIPIM in 2015, Power of 3 will attend MIPIM again later this month to highlight the huge benefits of a collaborative approach to attracting investors.

The East Midlands has a strong proposition, it is located in the centre of the UK and nowhere else in the country is there such three vibrant cities, so geographically close to one another
— Andy Cliffe, Managing Director of East Midlands Airport

Andy Cliffe, Managing Director of East Midlands Airport, commented: "We are looking forward to supporting the MIPIM event; it shows how the three great cities of the East Midlands are pulling together as one. East Midlands Airport is a vital part in the growth of the region providing a gateway to domestic and international markets and the parts to build the Midlands Engine."

"The East Midlands has a strong proposition, it is located in the centre of the UK and nowhere else in the country are there such three vibrant cities, so geographically close to one another."

Kathryn Allen, Head of Investment at Marketing Derby, said: "The Power of 3 highlights the massive potential of the East Midlands economy and, by working collaboratively, Derby, Nottingham and Leicester can ensure we have an influential voice as part of the developing Midlands Engine."
