MIRA Technology Park will be exhibiting alongside the Leicester & Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP) whose delegation will include the Leicester City Mayor Peter Soulsby, with both parties seeking to raise awareness within, and attract potential investment from, International businesses.
Recognised by the UK Government for its growth potential and attractiveness to inward investors, MIRA Technology Park was awarded Enterprise Zone in 2011 and has since hosted a number of visits from Government ministers, most recently the Rt Hon Dr Vince Cable, Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills.
The development, which aims to create 2000 jobs in its first ten years, expects to eventually house businesses from across the automotive, aerospace, rail, defence and associated digital technology sectors.
LLEP Chair Andrew Bacon said,
“MIPIM is the most important event within the property industry. It enables us to push Leicester and Leicestershire and most importantly, our Enterprise Zone to the forefront of a world stage.
“In the current climate, having an Enterprise Zone is priceless opportunity for our area. We will be using the unique, exceptional networking, showcasing and commercial environment that MIPIM offers, to attract international transport and automotive businesses that could lead to significant inward investment opportunities at MIRA Technology Park.”
MIPIM, the world’s property market, brings together the most influential players from all international property sectors, offering unrivalled access to the greatest number of development sources and capital worldwide.
