A Guide to Hosting Your Professional Services Conference in Liverpool
Where is the best place to host a professional services conference or event?
Are you looking to host a professional services conference or event in a hub of private sector activity and growth?
Then Liverpool could be the perfect location.
With over 12,000 businesses calling the Liverpool City Region home, there’s a huge base of potential attendees to draw upon - 107,000 to be precise, with a further 6.2 million people within a one hour drive. This sector constitutes 14.4% of all jobs in Liverpool City Region.
Liverpool is recognised as a financial sector of excellence, and a number of sector concentrations exist here. Liverpool's maritime sector is 4.5 times more concentrated than the national average and we are also home to the largest wealth management sector outside the South.
Many of the UK’s leading professional services firms maintain considerable bases in the region, including:
- DLA Piper.
- Barclays Wealth
- Hill Dickinson.
- Weightmans LLP.
Beyond these names, you’ll also find leading financial firms such as Santander and Deutsche Bank as well as industry-leading eCommerce firms such as Shop Direct and TJ Morris.
Liverpool is also strategically connected with Europe’s other major business hubs, so if you’re looking to attract international attendees to your professional services conference they can easily reach ACC Liverpool by land, sea or air.
