Business festival to see welcome return of public

Jobs

Next year's International Festival of Business in Liverpool is set to be opened to members of the public, making it the first such trade fair to open its doors to visitors in 65 years. Last year's IFB was the first international trade expo to be staged in the UK since the 1951 Festival of Britain, and now organisers are keen to put on a great British showcase and display all the products being developed by businesses. Last year's IFB generated £300m of trade and investment deals and led directly to the creation of 10,000 jobs. It also compelled 1,400 companies to export goods for the first time. IFB chairman Max Steinberg is confident that next year's event will improve upon those figures and help secure Britain's status as one of the leading destinations for foreign investment.
