Browne Jacobson joins cream of Nottingham to showcase city’s strengths in Parliament
Browne Jacobson is joining Nottingham’s leading politicians, business leaders, major sporting institutions and world class universities in celebrating the very best the city has to offer at a special day of celebration in London.
Organised by the University of Nottingham, Nottingham in Parliament Day will take place on 25 October when more than 60 local institutions and businesses will travel to Westminster to showcase the city’s rich heritage and culture as well as its achievements as one of the country’s major cities for research, industry and commerce to the country’s MPs, peers, parliamentary decision makers and key stakeholders through a series of high profile events.
Sarah Walker Smith, Chief Operating Officer, at Browne Jacobson said: “Nottingham is such a dynamic, innovative and hugely aspirational city in which to live, work, study or visit.
“From the thousands of starts-ups that are keeping our rich entrepreneurial spirit alive to big corporates and household brand names known the world over from Raleigh, HP Sauce and Paul Smith through to Speedo, Boots and Experian.
“The city’s thriving creative quarter is a magnet for business, arts and technology and our excellent infrastructure means professionals from all sectors can continue to pursue a London career whilst enjoying the lifestyle advantages of a city such as Nottingham. You really can have the best of both worlds.
“We have an incredible story to tell and Nottingham in Parliament Day gives us that unique opportunity to showcase a side of the city and the county that many people are simply not aware of. It is the perfect platform to make sure Nottingham plays a key role economically as the UK moves towards a post Brexit future.”
Browne Jacobson will be hosting an evening networking reception where representatives from the world of business, sport and education including Boots UK, Experian, Nottingham Forest Football Club, Marketing Nottingham & Nottinghamshire and the University of Nottingham will showcase the city’s key commercial strengths, discuss ways of attracting inward investment and retaining and developing talent.
Other headline events during the day include, amongst others, a roundtable with Sir John Peace and ministers discussing Nottingham and the Midlands Engine Room followed by a lunchtime event exploring the University of Nottingham’s role as a world leader in research and academia with the Chinese Ambassador and Malaysian High Commissioner.
