Liverpool has rocketed to global attention in recent years as one of the UK’s most dynamic and forward-thinking places to do business. The city’s impressive regeneration has led to professionals from across the North West of England flocking there for the economic opportunities that life in Liverpool now encompasses. Now, the International Festival for Business (IFB) 2016 is cementing the city’s reputation as one of the top locations when it comes to commercial ventures with a global focus.
IFB2016 runs from 13 June to 1 July at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool. With HSBC, Google and BT partnering with the organisers to deliver the event, IFB2016 is offering the world’s largest ‘meet the buyer’ event, with state of the art networking and digital matching promising delegates unrivalled opportunities when it comes to making the connections they need to succeed.
The emphasis is very much on inspirational and aspirational business, which is perfectly in tune with Liverpool’s approach as a city, as Stuart Johnson, Business Development Manager at Prime Centrum, explains,
“You can see as you walk around Liverpool just how much the city has changed in recent years. The city has grown and developed with a host of stunning new buildings and cultural offerings, yet at the same time stayed true to its roots, celebrating its rich merchant history and of course its fabulous musical heritage. It’s a great city to do business in and clearly a natural choice for IFB2016.”
Liverpool’s commercial prowess has meant that competition for rental property in the city centre has increased hugely in recent years, as professionals and their families seek out prime apartments that are close to the central business and retail districts. One particularly popular area is the UNESCO World Heritage waterfront area, the location of the brand new Parliament Residence apartments. The area is just minutes from the central business district, the trendy Baltic Triangle and the celebrated Albert Dock region.
The choice of location means that those living in the spacious one and two bedroom homes at Parliament Residence will be able to access the best that the city has to offer, all within easy walking distance. They will also be able to enjoy spectacular views over the city and waterfront from the building’s private roof terrace lounge.
With tenant demand in the city centre rising and the Parliament Residence apartments offering a 22% early investor discount (prices are from £109,900 with 7% NET returns assured for three years), the 44 homes are expected to be snapped up fast – another key indicator of how important Liverpool is when it comes to exciting and fast-paced business opportunities.
