About this event

At the heart of the 'Logistics Golden Triangle', the A5 corridor is home to 2.89 million people and 1.32 million jobs, with an economic output of £22 billion. However, with a further 524 hectares of employment land and 1,646,742 sqm of floorspace developed as part of local plans, and around 111,000 new homes planned and 190,000 new jobs forecasted by 2031, the A5 corridor will need to be able to support this growth.

Midlands Connect is working with local councils and business on a long-term, corridor approach to bring about improvements to support the growth in housing and employment, benefiting people and businesses in the region.

The A5 Corridor Conference will take place on Friday 21st October 2022 at Sketchley Grange Hotel, Hinckley. We will hear from representatives of Local and National Government including Dr Luke Evans, MP for Hinckley & Bosworth, local businesses and Midlands Connect for a number of keynote speeches and panels.

The conference will be an interactive event and there will be plenty of chances for attendees to ask questions and engage with topics of discussion.
