West Yorkshire Mayor Tracy Brabin said:

“With booming cities, bustling towns and beautiful countryside, businesses are flocking to West Yorkshire for our work-life balance, and staying for the promise of greater public investment in transport and skills.

“Alongside our local authority partners, we’ll be showcasing the very best our region has to offer, attracting inward investment and driving economic growth and regeneration.

“The decisions and partnerships we make over the next three days will have a real, tangible impact on the lives of everyone in the region, as we work to build a stronger, brighter West Yorkshire.”

Some of the major topics that will be up for discussion at the event include housing, regeneration, and net zero, whilst Mayors, government ministers, and council leaders are all at hand to discuss some of the biggest challenges facing their communities.
