UKTI International Festival of Business

The International Festival of Business 2016 (IFB2016) is taking place at the Exhibition Centre in Liverpool over a three week period between Monday 13 June and Friday 1 July.







The festival aims to be the world’s leading international business event, with an anticipated audience over three weeks of over 30,000 delegates from the UK and overseas.

Each week of the business festival has a different theme:

  • Week one – advanced engineering
  • Week two – energy and environment
  • Week three – creative and digital.

Each week there will be the opportunity to attend expert-led conferences and sector-specific seminars, as well as one-to-one appointments with suppliers, buyers, investors and advisers. There will be live export and investment opportunities, plenty of expert advice on offer and a range of free business services, including legal, financial and marketing advice.

There will also be many large-scale networking opportunities, inspiring talks from leaders in the fields of business, innovation and technology and world-renowned events such as TEDx, Accelerate 2016 and the Horasis Global Meeting.

IFB2016 is completely free to attend. It is being delivered by Liverpool Vision in partnership with UK Trade & Investment (UKTI). For further information about what’s on at the festival or to register your business please visit the IFB website.
