We are pleased to announce that our June briefing will include four exciting speakers: Jon Horne, Chief Operating Officer, at Stobart Aviation will provide an update on Southend Airport, their development, growth and plans for the future. With passenger numbers increasing dramatically and new routes opening regularly this airport has a significant impact on the prosperity of the region.
Robert Stobinski, General Manager from Amazon Fulfillment Centre at Tilbury will be presenting on their new facility, their thoughts on the strategic benefits of the area and their plans for the future.
Leaders and Chief Executives across seven local authorities, agreed in 2017 to develop a joint 'place vision' for the region up to 2050 that will show how south Essex is a dynamic, modern place providing the conditions for people, communities and businesses to prosper. Lyn Carpenter, Chief Executive from Thurrock Council and Andrew Lewis Deputy Chief Executive Southend-on Sea Borough Council, will be presenting Vision 2050 for South Essex.
Unfortunately, due to the delay in the publication of the Thames Estuary 2050 Growth Commission Report, Sir John Armitt, who is Chairman of National Infrastructure Commission will delay speaking to the Southend Business Partnership until after publication of the report. We hope he is able to confirm for September 18 and will keep you posted.
The Business Briefing will start promptly at 8.30am. However registration will begin from 7.30am, giving you an opportunity to network. The event will finish at 10.00am but there will be further opportunity to network. Bookings can be made at https://bit.ly/2G6x2sd
