The Celtic Manor Resort is hosting Newport's next City Summit
Newport’s next City Summit is being hosted by the Celtic Manor Resort on 18 January 2018.
It will focus on the next stage of the city centre’s regeneration as well as other developments that promise to boost the local economy and Newport’s profile.
Newport is continuing to attract significant interest from business and investors that can see the city’s potential.
Since the last summit in 2016, there have been a number of major announcements including the planned IQE semiconductor foundry, which will create up to 2,000 highly-skilled jobs.
As well as new and expanding businesses, Newport’s reputation for hosting major events has led to it being chosen for the first ABP Newport Wales Marathon next year and the British Transplant Games in 2019.
Key speakers will talk about some of the exciting projects that are taking shape and in the pipeline.
A full line-up and further details will be released soon.
In previous years, the City Summits have enjoyed full houses so don’t miss out. Places must be booked by registering at www.newport.gov.uk/citysummit
