What will Derby and Derbyshire look like in 2020; what challenges, changes and opportunities will the county and city face in that time?

Marketing Derby is partnered with Geldards Law Firm and Insider to give you the opportunity to hear first hand from the people who are driving those changes. You will also have an opportunity to question leaders in the fields of skills, transport, tourism, industry and regeneration.

Speakers include:

  • Anne Wester, Leader of Derbyshire County Council
  • Martin Rawson, Deputy Leader of Derby City Council
  • David James, Chief Executive of Visit Peak District and Derbyshire
  • John Coyne, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Derby
  • April Hayhurst, Business Development Director at Derby College
