The economic & commercial contribution of sport to Manchester, the region, Britain & beyond (Manchester: A Global Centre of Sport, Part 3)
Sport, sport and more sport. Get inside the commercial and economic contribution that it makes to Manchester and beyond.
Manchester has developed an international reputation as being a home to high quality, world-class sport. Whether it is the global fanbase of United and City or the performances of British Cycling, everyone knows about Manchester. Sport therefore makes an important economic and commercial contribution to the city, the regions and indeed to Britain and beyond. The main aim of this event will be to examine the nature of this contribution, to discuss ways in which the contribution of sport can be further strengthened and to explore the role of the public can play in doing this.
This event will bring in top people from sport to explain how the economic and commercial well-being is linked to the city’s sporting profile and successes.
This is part of a series of football-themed events on the same date and in the same venue. Refreshments are available from 5pm, followed at 5.30pm by a session led by Manchester Metropolitan University on the socio-cultural impact of football in Manchester. An event led by the University of Manchester on stadium renaming is at 6.30pm and is then followed at 7.30pm by this session, led by Salford University, on the commercial impact of football. Refreshments and opportunities for networking are available at 8.15pm. Registration for each event is separate but attendees are welcome to attend as many of the events as they wish.
