The event, taking place on Wednesday 23 September 2020, will bring together a wide range of speakers, industry experts and big names from across the West Midlands and the UK.
The online conference, titled ‘Global Birmingham – Beyond Brexit’, will discuss the region post-Brexit, thanks to a variety of guest speakers, panel debates and insightful talks. The event will focus on the West Midlands beyond Brexit, looking at topics such as the Commonwealth Games, HS2, Manufacturing and the future of the region in a post-Brexit landscape.
Centre for Brexit Studies Director Professor Alex de Ruyter said: “We are delighted to be hosting our Annual Conference online this year. In these challenging times, we must adapt to a ‘new normal’, and we are pleased to be bringing together a wide range of speakers to discuss the big topics for our region in a post-Brexit landscape.
“Although we were looking forward to seeing everyone in person, hosting our conference online means that our event can still take place and nobody misses out, as well as keeping all attendees and speakers safe and well.”
Confirmed speakers and panel members for the conference include Sir Vince Cable, former leader of the Liberal Democrats and Anand Menon, Professor of European Politics and Foreign Affairs at King’s College London in the United Kingdom and Director of UK in a Changing Europe, as well as over 30 esteemed panel members and industry experts.
The event will also offer the chance to get involved and ask questions, as well as the opportunity to find out more about the Centre for Brexit Studies and our research.
