Liverpool BID Company and Liverpool Place Partnership are joining forces to attract investment and promote opportunities in the city regionally, nationally and internationally.
Bill Addy, CEO of Liverpool BID Company said that it was important for the private sector to help promote the region:
“We know that the public purse is facing challenging times, yet we do not want the city to fall behind. The private sector has a powerful role to play in showcasing Liverpool on the global stage.
“Indeed, as Eurovision arrives in 2023 we will have an incredible opportunity to showcase the city, from its stunning and world famous waterfront, to its historic architecture and character, to modern and striking development. I am excited for what the future holds for Liverpool and sharing our story, and the story of the businesses we represent across the world”.
Stephen Cowperthwaite, the Chair of the Liverpool Place Partnership added:
“We are delighted to form a strategic partnership with Liverpool BID Company building on their ongoing support for the Liverpool Place Partnership.
“We look forward to working closely with the Liverpool BID team and its levy payers as the city businesses play a vital role in supporting place making and investment that will benefit not just the city but also the wider city region.”
Liverpool BID Company is a private, not-for-profit organisation, representing the interests of 1,000 businesses in Liverpool city centre, while Liverpool Place Partnership is a private sector led programme working to “advance investment and foster support across Liverpool’s business community to make the city region an attractive place to invest.”
