The West Midlands has an impressive creative and cultural sector, with strengths in games production, content creation, design and cross-sector collaboration. And with over £4bn GVA added from the creative economy, the region is a hot spot for innovation.
Join on 15th September at 5:00pm for the Invest in Creative West Midlands Spotlight event as we showcase the incredible opportunities for investment in the region.
From Leamington Spa being dubbed the ‘Silicon Spa’ to Birmingham being the stand out Second City, businesses across the West Midlands are fusing creativity and culture with technology to produce ground breaking creative innovations.
Taking place at the home of Warwick Innovation Group’s Creative & Digital Incubator, 1 Mill Street, in the heart of Leamington Spa, investors and industry experts are invited to join in to celebrate the West Midlands’ thriving creative sector and discuss how we can continue to drive investment into the region.
