There are just 3 weeks to go until the The Global Reach Conference, a unique study into the international investment in and by the creative services industries in the North of England.

Taking place in Manchester city centre, the conference, which is free to attend, is aimed at those seeking overseas growth as well as establishing global links.

Supported by the BBC, MIDAS, Creative England and UK Fast, the conference is being hosted by Bruntwood and features keynotes from Google UK director, Dominic Allen; BBC North chief financial officer, Ian Haythornthwaite; Alex Connock, director Shine North; Rob Shaw, CEO Epiphany; Rob Morrice, CEO SteinIAS and Margaret Hicks-Clarke, head of operations at the Press Association.

The research paper has been completed by Prolific North and it has identified more than 250 companies in the region that either have an overseas operation or are owned by a global organisation. The range and scales of the companies represented in the North of England is likely to surprise many, when they are announced on November 28th.

As well as hearing from speakers, delegates will be invited to join a Q&A session and share their experiences.
