With its reputation for openness for a creativity and its historical standing as a gateway to international trade, Liverpool is the natural home for the 2018 World Forum for Foreign Direct Investment hosted by International Business Festival.

Well connected to the rest of the country by road and rail links, and to the world via John Lennon International, Airport, Liverpool is a vital global and regional hub.  Just 40 minutes in the car from Manchester, and a little over two hours via Virgin Trains from Central London, the city is favorable positioned to allow excellent access to the UK market.

Recently crowned the fast-growth capital of the UK for its abundance of rapidly expanding businesses, Liverpool is at the centre of the UK’s second largest regional economy, worth more than £149 billion and home to 266,00 firms – from established multinationals to innovative start-ups.

Named as one of the Rough Guide’s top three global cities to visits, and as the friendliest place in the UK by Conde Nast Traveler magazine, Liverpool is a world-class visitor destination with facilities to match, with over 7,500 hotel beds and luxury accommodation.

2018 is shaping up to be an exciting year for the city.
