Being in business means looking to the future. Whether you are planning a new product launch, expanding into a new market or investing in talent or technology, it is important to consider what challenges and opportunities lay ahead. A business can only thrive if it prepares for what’s to come and embraces change.

The future of business is a central theme of the 2018 International Business Festival and its main stage will host some of the world’s most influential business leaders discussing the most important issues of here and now. The centre of the Festival experience, the Futures Stage will host industry experts and thought leaders  from  a range of high-growth sectors, covering everything from manufacturing to life sciences to the creative industries. The International Business Festival takes place in Liverpool from 12-28 June 2018.

Audiences will hear Anthony Behan of the Artificial Intelligence Unit at IBM discuss how businesses can embrace artificial intelligence. BBC Business Editor Simon Jack will explore the productivity puzzle and Stefan Stern, Director of the High Pay Centre, will look at the role of human workers in the economy of tomorrow.

The Festival has enabled more than half a billion pounds in trade and investment since it launched in 2014, and the last edition of the event helped some 500 UK companies secure exports worth in excess of £87 million at the 2016 event. These credentials, paired with the calibre of speakers confirmed across a diverse range of sectors, make the Festival a must-attend event for SMEs looking to grow.
