Marketing Derby Launches MDTV

A new media platform, MDTV, was launched at Marketing Derby’s Annual Business Event held at Bondholder Derby Theatre in front of 500 delegates on Friday.

Three news reports outlined the company’s activities in attracting jobs and investment in the retail, residential and technology sectors.

The company’s MD, John Forkin, also outlined a series of investments that are imminent, including the arrival of retail giant TK Maxx in the St Peters Quarter and new student residential schemes in the Cathedral Quarter, as well as many other schemes in the pipeline.

“We have the profile, we have the investors, now as a city we need to deliver. We are at a tipping point in investment” commented John.

Describing the company’s Bondholders as ‘magnificent’ John also announced new starter Code 56 as the Bondholder Rising Star for 2018 and committed the company to continued working with partners across the Midlands Engine.

The ABE also had keynote speeches from David Boutcher, Chair of the London Chapter of Derby Ambassadors and adventurer Leigh Timmis, who announced a new World Record attempt cycling across Europe this summer.
