IFB impact study reveals huge export boost

A total of 750 companies are expected to secure £100m in export sales over the next two years through the 2014 International Festival for Business in Liverpool, according to a new impact study that upgrades previous estimates. IFB chairman Max Steinberg said the reassessment 'sends a very clear message about the tangible benefits which companies can expect if they attend and engage with IFB2016'. Steinberg also disclosed that 200 companies secured £250m of investment as a direct result of the 2014 event, compared to 150 companies securing £200m of investment under the last estimate. He added that over 50% of the companies estimated to have benefitted from IFB2014 were from the North West. The second International Festival for Business is due to take place in Liverpool next June, when thousands of businesses will gather for three weeks of networking and deal-making.
