Following the successes of our Business Dinner in Cumbria in March and the North West Annual Dinner in November, CBI members can look forward to another high-level event with the best of regional businesses on the day before the UK is due to leave the European Union.

Our dinner is attended by more than 200 business leaders, making it the perfect opportunity to connect with senior influencers from across the business community including manufacturing, engineering, nuclear and energy, leisure and tourism, agriculture, utilities, transport and education. Also, in attendance are key political, civic and media representatives from the region. 

This year we welcome Carolyn Fairbairn, CBI Director General, who joins us at a critical juncture for the economy and the country. Carolyn joined the CBI as Director-General in November 2015. Her career spans a range of leadership roles in business, media and government, with particular experience in the finance and broadcasting sectors.
