Unlocking Hull’s Potential: Invest Hull at UKREiiF 2024

in Hull

The city of Hull is gearing up to showcase its potential and investment opportunities at the upcoming UK Real Estate Investment and Infrastructure Forum (UKREiiF) this May. As Yorkshire’s only waterfront city, Hull offers unique and lucrative avenues for real estate and infrastructure investments, spearheaded by the diligent efforts of the Invest Hull team from Hull City Council.

Hull’s Investment Landscape

The Invest Hull initiative has consistently been at the forefront of drawing significant investments to the city. Over the past decade, the city has seen an influx of over £5 billion in investments, with major contributions from prominent entities such as Siemens Gamesa, Reckitt, and the University of Hull, which alone invested £750 million.

These investments have not only bolstered Hull’s economic framework but have also been a catalyst for creating hundreds of jobs, underlining the city’s growing prominence as a key economic hub in the region.

A Platform for Growth at UKREiiF 2024

The Invest Hull team’s participation in UKREiiF, which has been a tradition since the forum’s inception in 2022, is proof of their commitment to promoting Hull’s economic prospects. The forum, which is set to occur from May 21 to May 23 at the Royal Armouries in Leeds, will feature Hull’s team on stand D30 in New Dock Hall.

This year, Alex Codd and Garry Taylor, who lead the city’s economic development and major projects respectively, will represent Hull. Alex Codd is scheduled to engage in a panel on the third day titled ‘The Place Trailblazers: Optimising Assets for Better Place Outcomes,’ while Garry Taylor will contribute to a discussion on integrating cultural and creative arts into master plans and destination strategies, aptly named ‘Eat, Sleep, Art, Repeat.’

Networking and Collaborative Opportunities

Both leaders are poised to share insights into Hull’s development strategies and future prospects. Their participation in these discussions not only highlights Hull’s innovative approaches to urban development but also facilitates vital networking with investors, developers, local authorities, and other stakeholders. This collaborative environment is crucial for fostering partnerships that can drive further economic and cultural growth in Hull.

UKREiiF’s Role in Shaping Futures

Organized by Built Environment Networking and supported by major UK property and infrastructure firms, UKREiiF has become a cornerstone for promoting sustainable and inclusive growth in the property and construction sectors.

The event is expected to draw over 12,000 participants, including a diverse mix of investors and local government representatives, making it an ideal platform for Hull to expand its economic horizons.

Final Points

As Hull continues to emerge as a key player in the UK’s economic landscape, the Invest Hull team’s proactive engagement at UKREiiF 2024 underscores the city’s readiness to embrace new investment opportunities. The forum not only serves as a platform to highlight Hull’s promising future but also aligns with the city’s broader objectives of economic rejuvenation and sustainable development.
